Our team approach leads to patient success, with the rehabilitation physician, nurses, prosthetic and orthotic specialists, neuropsychologist and physical, occupational and speech therapists working together to address all aspects of condition management and recovery to meet each patient's goals. We work hard to help patients adapt after diagnosis from conditions including multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, brain tumors and other neuromuscular diseases.
Through use of neuroplasticity, we can help patients retrain their brains to reduce or remove persistent pain caused by fibromyalgia or other conditions. Neuroplastic transformation is a treatment to change an increase number of brain pathways devoted to processing pain back to normal function using counter stimulation techniques.
Occupational therapy involves the evaluation, assessment and treatment of upper body dysfunctions caused by medical disorders, injuries and trauma. Our goal is to enhance your quality of life by addressing activities of daily living and promoting your independence and well-being. We offer hand therapy, work injury and functional capacity evaluations and medical driving assessments and training, retraining in general life activities such as dressing, cooking and personal hygiene, along with training in fall prevention, home safety, body mechanics and lifting, and job-related activities such as computer ergonomics and those involving fine motor skills including working with particular tools or equipment.
Our highly trained and experienced staff of physical therapists and physical therapy assistants provide inpatient and outpatient services. Specific conditions treated include arthritis, cancer rehabilitation, dizziness or vertigo, balance and fall prevention, neurological rehabilitation, orthopedic rehabilitation, pregnancy and post-partum related issues such as incontinence, pelvic pain, spinal stability and osteoporosis, and persistent pain/neuroplasticity. Among the specialized therapeutic methods employed are aquatic therapy and trigger point dry needling. Physical therapy also can help alleviate side effects from cancer surgery and treatment, including pain and fatigue, by developing exercise plans.
Speech language pathologists, also known as speech therapists, assess and treat adult patients with speech, language, voice, swallowing, and cognitive linguistic disorders. Speech language pathologists use physical examination, instrumental assessment, and standardized speech, language, and cognitive-linguist tests to assess and diagnose disorders. All treatment plans are individualized to the patient's disorder and needs.
Our speech language pathologists offer speech/language evaluations for those who have suffered a stroke, traumatic brain injury, brain tumor, Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's. They can provide therapy for conditions including aphasia, apraxia, dysarthria and voice disorders. They also can assist patients with head and neck cancer before, during and after treatment with preventive exercises and rehabilitative measures to reduce or eliminate dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), or regain cognitive function.
