Rehab Services Include:
- Occupational Therapy
In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping people recovering from injury to regain skills and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
- Speech Therapy
A key element of our physical rehabilitation programs, we help patients with injuries or disorders that impact their ability to communicate to develop better communication, cognitive skills, hearing, and swallowing abilities.
- Physical Therapy
We assist patients after illness, injury, or surgery to strengthen the affected area and hasten recovery. Therapeutic interventions help increase mobility, improve balance, and decrease pain.
