Our physical therapists help patients to regain their strength and balance, prevent falls, increase their range of motion and decrease pain. Through therapeutic exercises, patients can increase their balance, muscle function, coordination, endurance and their overall strength and mobility. We use a variety of proven methodologies, including exercise, strength training, balance, gait training, transfer activities and sound breathing techniques to address edema, incontinence, wound healing and pain management.
Our occupational therapists help patients to safely and independently perform the many normal activities of bathing and dressing, managing household tasks and on-the-job activities. Our goal is to assist patients to recover as much functional ability as possible, including visual, cognitive, and general coordination skills. Therapists help patients adapt and modify the environment to enhance their ability to function in their physical and social environments. They work on strength, endurance, range of motion, coordination and balance, memory and orientation. Occupational Therapy services is currently only available to inpatients.
