Rehab services provided by Independence Rehab—a national provider of intensive, outcomes-based physical, occupational, and speech therapy.
Whether your difficulty with walking is caused by an amputation, stroke, joint surgery, or simply weakness, we'll do everything we can to get you walking again. Our Physical Therapists specialize in it. We might use fancy words like "gait training," but what it boils down to is this: most of our patients walk out the door on their own two feet.
Your balance system is affected by cognition and reflex speed, strength, and something we call proprioception. If your balance isn't what it used to be, we have all sorts of ways to improve it.
Artificial joints (hips, knees, shoulders, ankles) require special post-op care and rehab. There's nothing we do better. We understand the anatomy, the limitations of your new joint, and how to get it working at an optimum level.
You can't walk very well…or you can't stand up without help. Maybe you're weak and you're afraid of falling. You've had a stroke, a hip, knee, or shoulder replacement. Perhaps you're not able to dress and groom yourself. Or maybe an illness made you so sick and weak you're having a tough time swallowing your food….
If you're having difficulty with cognition, speech, or swallowing our Speech and Language Pathologists (Speech Therapists) are there to help. They're experts in improving your ability to communicate, think clearly and swallow properly.
When it comes to therapy we don't mess around. We're serious about rehab. When you come to us we'll work hard to get you better in the shortest time possible. If you need to take it slower, no problem. But expect us to give you our maximum effort.
Occupational Therapists are specialists in retraining you to do all those things that used to be so easy—like getting out of bed, bathing, getting dressed and grooming yourself. We call those activities of daily living. You may be having a tough time doing those things if you've had a joint replacement, stroke, or serious illness.
