Recovering from an injury or learning to live with a physical disability or limitation can be challenging. Physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) can help patients regain strength or mobility, relearn skills, or find new ways of performing everyday tasks. Each patient will experience a different treatment program designed especially for them. By working with the patient and their loved ones physical and/or occupational therapists can care for patients to provide the following therapies:

  • Walking and balance retraining
  • Wheelchair seating and medical equipment assessment
  • Mobilization Techniques
  • Return to Sport Retraining
  • Physical Modalities
  • Range of motion, strengthening, flexibility, and stabilization exercises
  • Body weight supported treadmill training
  • Neuromuscular re-education
  • Functional electrical stimulation
  • Splinting
  • Functional mobility and transfer retraining
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) retraining
  • Contracture management
  • Vestibular rehabilitation
  • Fall prevention

When a patient is referred to PT or OT, their first visit will be an evaluation. This means the therapist will ask about the patient’s physical history, examine the area of the body that needs therapy, and make a recommendation for treatment. Patients will be asked to come in once a week or more frequently, depending on their care plan.
