Rehabilitation Services

Rehabilitation Services is a multidisciplinary outpatient program specializing in a variety of therapies which help to ease the transition back to everyday life. Our skilled rehabilitation professionals provide extensive support to restore function, reduce pain, and maximize functional mobility.

Our services

We are proud to offer the following outpatient rehabilitation services to assist you on your journey to a successful recovery:

Physical therapy

Our Physical Therapists begin with a physical evaluation. During the evaluation, patients undergo a series of tests and measures to determine range of motion, muscle strength, postural alignment, and abnormalities in movement patterns. Assessments include an evaluation of functional activities of daily living, sensation, balance, coordination, endurance, and nerve function.

Our physical therapy program provides significant benefits for those with back or neck pain, arthritis, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoporosis, and many other conditions that affect your stamina, endurance, and comfort.

We personally tailor a wide range of exercises and treatment programs to meet your needs and goals. Your treatment plan, under the careful guidance of our physical therapists, may include:

  • Dry needling from experienced therapists
  • Therapeutic activities to restore functional movement and ability
  • Neuromuscular re-education to improve balance and posture
  • Manual therapy techniques to improve joint and soft tissue mobility
  • Modalities to decrease inflammation and swelling

Speech-language pathology

Our Outpatient Speech Language Pathology Program includes evaluations and therapy for adult patients. We also help patients who have head/neck cancer-related speech and/or swallowing issues, voice evaluation and therapy for patients who present with voice problems, and coach tracheostomized adults requiring assistance with communication and swallowing.

In collaboration with the Outpatient Radiology Department, we offer modified barium swallow studies for doctors wanting further evaluation beyond our outpatient clinical evaluation.
