PHYSICAL & OCCUPATIONAL THERAPYThe Rehabilitation Services Department provides Occupational and Physical Therapy to adults and children so that they can develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability. These modalities are used when movement and function are threatened by the process of aging or that of injury or disease.
Occupational and Physical Therapy maximizes movement potential through promotion, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. Services are provided on an outpatient and inpatient basis, and it is common for physicians to prescribe rehab therapy after some surgical procedures.
