In our caring environment at the Wellness Center at Thomas Hospital, our skilled and knowledgeable therapists listen to your needs and develop specialized therapy for you.
All therapy requires a physician’s referral. Your first visit involves an evaluation by an occupational, physical or speech therapist. It includes a thorough examination and review of functional limitations that you may be experiencing. It is important to provide the therapist with feedback and discuss goals that you want to achieve.
Following evaluation, the therapist designs an individualized treatment plan to address limitations in range of motion, strength and functional activities. The plan may consist of therapeutic exercises, massage, joint mobilizations, patient education, aquatic therapy, balance retraining and applications such as heat, ice and electrical stimulation or ultrasound to decrease pain. The therapist provides you with a home exercise program.
