Rehabilitation Therapies

Physical Therapists: Laura French and Joyce Kost

Our interdisciplinary team of physical, occupational and speech therapists work closely with our patients to restore maximum function and independence. We work with your physician on a plan of recovery that is right for you, and enable you to progress in the comfort of your home.

Physical Therapists help patients to improve strength, balance and endurance following illness, injury or orthopedic surgery.

Orthopedic Care is physical therapy that is frequently prescribed for patients recovering from back or joint surgery to help them regain flexibility and stability. Often a pre-operative physical therapy program can speed post-operative recovery.

Occupational Therapists assist patients who need help with the ability to perform the daily activities of life after injury or illness. Therapists work with patients on tasks such as improving fine motor skills, using assistive devices for dressing, bathing, cooking and learning sequencing techniques for correctly taking medications.

Speech and Language Therapists help people who may have difficulty with chewing, swallowing, or problems relating to communication disorders, such as aphasia, dysphasia and voice control.  Our therapist can also help with problems related to memory loss and dementia.
