Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology
Physical therapy minimizes the effects of accidents, disease or developmental disabilities. Therapists help their patients restore or improve muscle strength, joint movement, flexibility and endurance. They do this by carefully evaluating a patient's status and then designing a treatment plan geared toward that person's specific needs. Physical therapy helps patients maximize their physical abilities, to reduce pain and to prevent further disability.
Occupational therapy focuses on helping the patient develop the basic skills necessary to increase his/her level of independence and quality of life, enabling his/her to function at the highest level possible.
Speech-language pathologists specialize in diagnosing and treating patients with communication problems, including those who are unable to make speech sounds or cannot make them clearly. Speech pathologists also evaluate and treat patients with feeding or swallowing dysfunction.
In addition, we offer a 15-minute light touch massage therapy for oncology inpatients and chemotherapy patients.
