Physical Therapy: Making a Difference

For people with health problems resulting from injury or disease, the physical therapist assists in the recovery process making them stronger, relieving their pain and helping them to regain use of an affected limb or to relearn such activities of daily living as walking, dressing or bathing. Physical therapists teach patients and their families what to do so that healing continues through self care at home.

Physical therapists also seek to keep people well and safe from injury. They do this by teaching the importance of fitness and showing people how to avoid hurting their bodies at work or play. By designing and supervising individualized conditioning programs, physical therapists promote optimal physical performance and help health-conscious people to increase their overall fitness level, muscular strength and endurance.

Occupational Therapy: Skills for the Job of Living

Occupational Therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. Every day children and adults have or develop health conditions that significantly affect their ability to manage their daily lives. With the help of occupational therapy, many of these individuals can achieve or regain a higher level of independence. When skill and strength cannot be developed or improved, occupational therapy offers creative solutions and alternatives for carrying out daily activities.

Services typically include
Customized treatment programs aimed at improving abilities to carry out the activities of daily living
Comprehensive evaluation of home and job environments and recommendations on necessary adaptation

Speech-Language Pathology: Language, Our Most Human Characteristic

Language is essential to learning, working and enjoying family life and friendships. There are many ways to express language: speaking, using sign language, writing and using computerized communication devices. The professionals who are educated to assess speech and language development and to treat language and speech disorders are speech-language pathologists (sometimes informally referred to as speech therapists).

Speech-language pathologists help those who stutter to increase their fluency; help people who have had strokes or experienced brain trauma to regain lost language and speech; help people with swallowing disorders; help children and adolescents who have language disorders to improve the language skills that lead to better academic performance; counsel individuals and families to understand and deal with speech and language disorders.
