Our therapists help patients of all activity levels recover from injury, surgery, or other ailments, offering physical, occupational and speech therapy in centers across Westmoreland County. Our objective is to get you back to a normal life as soon as possible!
The goal of physical therapy is restoring the ability to move safely and effectively. During physical therapy, patients learn how to maintain their renewed mobility and ways to prevent recurring injury. They also are taught exercises to build strength and reinforce treatment to be used at home.
Occupational therpay moves the patient toward greater independence. We teach the safest ways to perform daily activities, such as getting dressed, doing laundry, cooking and cleaning. Occupational therapists can also evaluate the patient’s home and make recommendations for safer and easier actions. We can help the patient adapt to the physical needs of his or her workplace.
Speech therapy covers a broad range of patient needs: not only improving speech, but also swallowing. A speech therapist can help with reading and writing skills, and with attention to needs such as attention span, memory and judgment.
