A Multidisciplinary Approach to Physical and Occupational Therapy

Physical Therapy Team

Rehabilitation therapy encompasses a wide range of treatment modalities to assist individuals to return to active, pain-free lives. The rehabilitation team consists of a medical director, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists and includes audiology services and aquatic therapy. Many of our therapists have earned specialized certifications and/or had extensive training in various specialty areas, including geriatrics, hand therapy, lymphedema treatment, wound therapy, gait analysis and women’s health issues.

All members of the rehabilitation team work closely with other members of your health care team, both in the inpatient and outpatient setting. On the inpatient side, the rehab team has regular meetings and contact with nurses, physicians, case managers and many other disciplines involved in patient care. On the outpatient side, therapists regularly communicate with the physician and with other therapists involved in the patient’s care.
