Physical Therapists provide skilled therapy to improve mobility, balance, transfers, range of motion and pain management. They instruct patients in skilled techniques to improve their ability to walk. climb stairs, and increase physical stamina. They assess the need for specialized braces or equipment that may be required to improve self-reliance and safety. Treatment includes hot and cold application, muscular stimulation, therapeutic exercise, ultrasound, and other techniques to ease pain and treat wounds.
Occupational Therapists retrain patients in self-care skills such as feeding, dressing, bathing and grooming. They use graded activities, safety training and other compensatory techniques to improve activities of daily living. They are specialists in recommending adaptive equipment and environmental changes to help the patient function safely in their environment. They are especially sensitive to the stress and frustration often felt by patients and their families during the rehabilitative period.
Speech-Language Pathologists assist patients with all aspects of communication. Treatment strategies involve teaching compensatory techniques to improve communication, listening, reading and writing comprehension, language interpretation and expression skills.
