Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies
Our physical therapy provides a safe environment to practice your balance and gain strength in your muscles. Benefits include increasing your range of movement, reducing pain, restoring your ability to function and preventing further disability.
In fact, it’s even possible to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs. After physical therapy, you may be more likely to avoid falls - a leading cause of injury and disability. Some participants report increased confidence, in addition to the physical benefits!
To help you live as independently as possible, you may receive Occupational Therapy. This treatment can include assistance and training for your daily activities, like dressing, eating, housekeeping, and more.
Occupational therapy is more than just physical exercises; you will also have your home environment assessed for safety and functionality. With the aid of an occupational therapist, you might arrange your home in a way that will better meet your needs. They may also be able to suggest assistive devices like special utensils for eating, shower seats or other helpful tools.
As we grow older, our vocal cords become less elastic and larynx muscles weaken, which can make normal speech difficult. Therapy can help participants regain communication ability.
Other speech problems may be the result of a medical problem, like a stroke. A speech therapist can help you learn to use the muscles in your face. As a result, you will be better able to eat, speak, and communicate with others.
