- Physical therapy: Knowledgeable physical therapists evaluate and treat patients with a variety of conditions. Personalized care plans may include an exercise program to improve range of motion, strength or balance. Family education is also offered to help patients achieve goals more quickly.
- Occupational therapy: Our experienced occupational therapists may use perceptual training, exercise programs, home assessments and adaptive equipment to help people master daily activities and reach independent living goals. We treat people recovering from strokes and surgery, as well as people with orthopedic injuries and other medical conditions.
- Speech therapy: Experienced speech-language pathologists help patients attain or regain speech-language skills. We treat people with aphasia, motor speech disorders, swallowing problems and cognitive impairments.
Diet and nutrition consultation
Registered dietitians offer consultation and education regarding diet and nutritional needs.
