RehabGym3Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on identification of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as future injury prevention. Following evaluation, the physical therapist develops an individualized treatment program.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Increasing strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities 
  • Increasing motor control for a patient who has suffered a stroke 
  • Improving coordination, balance and the ability to walk following a fracture 
  • Improving overall strength conditioning, range of motion and endurance 
  • Teaching pain management 
  • Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury 
  • Promoting safety awareness for the well-being of the resident

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists use task directed activities in the treatment of our patients whose functional abilities and independence with activities of daily living have been impaired by illness, injury or normal aging. Occupational therapy assists our patients in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our occupational therapists may work with patients who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. They assist our patients with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.

Areas of treatment may include:

  • Functional independence - eating, bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking 
  • Maintenance of wellness - dressing, grooming 
  • Prevention of further disability - home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment 
  • Increasing safety awareness 
  • Standing balance and endurance 

Speech Therapy

Our speech therapists provide a continuum of services including assessment, education and treatment for language, voice, articulation and fluency disorders. Our treatment programs are directed towards improving communication skills and safe swallowing. We assist in rehabilitating patients who struggle with comprehension, memory, processing and expression abilities. We also instruct the patient or the caregiver in the techniques ranging from head positioning, to promoting safe swallowing at a slower rate, to clearer speech. We also teach patients how to compensate if they cannot be re-habilitated to their prior level of performance.

Patients admitted to the facility that are receiving nutrition partially or exclusively via a gastrostomy tube are evaluated for their potential to return to solid foods.

Speech therapists work to restore the following abilities: 

  • Speech and voice clarity
  • Comprehension and verbal expression
  • Chewing and swallowing ability
  • Cognitive language skills, like memory, problem-solving, and abstract  reasoning
  • Patient and family/caregiver education and training for managing ongoing difficulties with communication, cognition, and swallowing
