Physical Therapy focuses on the remediation of impairments and disabilities and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention. Simply, it is a branch of rehabilitative medicine aimed at helping patients maintain, recover and improve their physical abilities. Our experienced and registered physical therapists are experts at helping patients increase muscle and connective tissue flexibility, strength and balance. Using state-of-the-art protocols, including sensory motor coordination, therapeutic exercises, muscle relaxation techniques, and movement pattern analysis, our therapists can quickly and comfortably help you reduce pain, increase range of motion and achieve your goals.
Occupational therapy focuses on helping a person achieve independence in his or her day-to-day life. Occupational therapists help people participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Most patients notice an increase in hand and upper body strength within the first 3 weeks of the program.
At Healing Therapeutics, we have speech language pathologists who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of speech, voice, and language disorders across all age populations. They work with people of all ages who are unable to make speech sounds or cannot make them clearly and also who stutter, have fluency and rhythm problems, inappropriate pitch, or harsh voice and speech quality problems. The most widespread and obvious speech disorder is stuttering, often caused by anxiety. The speech therapist sets up a program of speech exercises to reduce the disability, and improve the quality if speech. Therapists also work with families on treatment techniques to use at home and on how to modify behavior that impedes communication. For the older population we treat, some need speech therapy as a result of hearing loss, stroke, mental disability, or brain injury.
Healing Therapeutics provides objective balance assessments not only to patients on program but also to facilities, or anyone in need. Using Biodex’s innovative and portable BioSway balance assessment machine Healing Therapeutics can provide objective baseline measures of an individual balance and track this over time. Objective measures of this sort are excellent for determining a need for therapy intervention as well as gauging progress with therapy.
We also offer rehabilitation services in the comfort of your own home. This is ideal for anyone who is home bound or cannot get transportation to one of our local treatment centers and the benefits include flexible scheduling and one-on-one attention in the comfort of your own space. For example, you have hip replacement surgery, but instead of heading to a nursing home for care, you go back home, where a physical therapist helps you recover. This is becoming a popular choice for many Seniors after an injury, because Medicare Part B covers Home Therapy.
