PHYSICAL THERAPY

Individuals may benefit from physical therapy when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. Physical Therapy (PT) helps improve physical function and fitness levels. The goal of PT is to make daily tasks and activities easier to do. This may include walking and getting in and out of bed. PT is also beneficial after surgery and can speed the recovery process. PT helps regain flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and balance. Stretching, exercise, weight lifting, massage, ice/heat applications, and other treatments are all part of a physical therapy plan.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational Therapy (OT) helps patients develop the “skills for the job of living,” increase
independence, and lead productive and satisfying lives.

  • Customized treatment programs to improve activities of daily living (dressing, bathing,
    grooming)
  • Home and job site evaluation and recommendations for adaptation.
  • Performance skills assessment and treatment.
