Types of Therapy
Physical Therapy - provides treatment to help individuals maintain, restore and/or improve their mobility or movement. Disease, injury, surgery and aging are often to blame for a decrease in motion. A physical therapist works with the patient to assess the situation and develop a treatment plan and goals.
Occupational Therapy - provides treatment to individuals affected by disease, injury, surgery or aging to help them live and work as independently as possible. Occupational therapists work closely with patients and their families to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Speech Therapy - provides treatment to individuals that have speech and/or language disorders. A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds, whereas a language disorder refers to a difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Speech therapists provide services to individuals from infancy through geriatrics.
Athletic Training - provides treatment to individuals to help prevent, recognize and manage athletic-related injuries. Athletic trainers work under the direct supervision of a licensed physician or other health care professional and work in a variety of settings, including schools, colleges, professional sports, hospitals, clinics, physician offices, military and law enforcement.
