Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
Getting around comfortably and freely is the goal of physical therapy. PT is a skilled rehabilitative service that concentrates on balance, mobility, functional independence, pain management, and the best quality of life possible. Care may include: full evaluation, assessment, and treatment of a patient’s flexibility, strength, endurance, functional mobility, and environment.
Improving our patients’ activities of daily living is the objective of occupational therapy. OT is a skilled rehabilitative intervention that focuses on increasing functional independence, social participation, and quality of life. Care may include: evaluation of our patient’s home and environments, fitting of and training on assistive devices, dressing, bathing, and hand function, as well as caregiver and family education.
Communication is the key focus of our speech-language pathology professionals. This skilled rehabilitative intervention focuses on assessing, diagnosing, and treating disorders related to speech, language, social communication, cognition, and swallowing. speech-language pathologists also offer education to patients and caregivers to improve the overall health and well-being of their patients.
Medicare covers 80% and the secondary insurance covers the rest. Therapy can be started with a referral from the physician.
