Therapy Services

 

Occupational therapy is a science-driven profession that helps individuals regain function and/or effectively compensate so they can engage in meaningful activities.  Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team.  It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science.

Our Pediatric Therapy Program is built around the idea to help children strive to be their best self, utilizing highly proven developmental and skill building therapies. While some children may need assistance with speech therapy and strengthening of motor skills, others may need help to focus on balance, basic feeding and swallowing, and sensory processing.

To explore our care options, please call 322-1005.

Our team of physical therapists specialize in movement, working to optimize a patient’s quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education.  Physical therapists teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits.  A PT (Physical Therapist) will examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.

 

 

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults.
