Services of the Center

Physical therapy focuses on all physical aspects of recovery. Treatment emphasizes improving the patient's strength, mobility, and endurance. Other benefits of physical therapy include accelerating the healing process and relieving pain.

Occupational therapy focuses on increasing our patient's overall independent functioning. Treatment is concentrated on improving the function of the upper body, specifically the arms and hands. Treatments may include the design and use of assistive and adaptive equipment.

Speech therapy focuses on improving the physical and cognitive aspects of speech and swallowing. Treatment is concentrated on a selection of specialized exercises to assist the patient to regain or compensate for inadequate swallowing or verbal communication skills.

The therapists at the Southwest Center for Rehabilitation believe that the quality of care is improved with a team approach. Very often, our patient's rehabilitative needs will require two or all three services.
