Physical Therapy (PT) is needed when recovering from hip surgery, a stroke, a fall or other impairment (including loss of function due to normal aging). The goal with physical therapy is to help get you smoothly through the rehabilitation process, prevent future injury, and improve health. Physical therapy might include range of motion exercises and other exercises to help you regain muscle strength and improve walking patterns.
Physical therapy helps:
- Decrease pain
- Promote healing
- Restore function and mobility
- Provide training in ergonomics and body mechanics
- Promote fitness and health through education
- Make recommendations for environmental changes to enhance your independence.

Occupational Therapy (OT) is often defined as therapy through activity. The goal is to have you return to activities you enjoy and that allow you to function well at home. Occupational therapy might include working on activities like cooking, dressing, laundry and other things you did before your injury or illness.
Occupational Therapy also aids individuals with generalized weaknesses, including those with Alzheimer’s Disease, COPD, depression, or Parkinson’s disease. And occupational therapists can instruct you in how to use adaptive equipment, including wheelchairs, walkers, orthoses, and devices to assist with dressing and eating.
Our occupational therapists will:
- Evaluate and train clients for daily living activities
- Teach exercise programs to increase joint motion, strength, and flexibility
- Instruct you about joint protection and personal energy conservation
- Evaluate you home for safety and recommend changes
- Train in the use of adaptive devices
- Make recommendations to caregivers and family members, and provide training wherever necessary
- Utilize special equipment to improve your well-being

Speech Therapy may be needed as a result of trauma or stroke. The goal is to help you regain and increase your ability to communicate through speech. It also can address problems with swallowing. Speech therapy might involve vocal and other exercises.
Along with normal aging, medical conditions such as muscular dystrophy, head or neck cancer, or a brain injury can cause quieter, shakier, and slower speech. Our speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can help you improve your articulation, correct slurring, address problems with swallowing, and develop better movement of the lips, tongue, and jaw.
Our speech therapists focus on:
- Diagnosing verbal and non-verbal communication issues, and their potential for rehabilitation
- Setting measurable goals with the client and their family
- Treating voice disorders and dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
- Testing your ability to tolerate a prescribed treatment program
- Educating and counseling you and your family about communication and swallowing
- Promoting healthy lifestyle practices that help prevent speech-related disorders
