ELITE Therapies

About us

ELITE Therapies by Crisp Regional is a team of licensed physical, occupational, and speech therapists that provide rehabilitation services at Crisp Regional Hospital (inpatient), ELITE (outpatient), Cordele Health and Rehab (skilled nursing facility), Crisp Regional Nursing and Rehab (skilled nursing facility), and CareSouth Home Health Agency. Rehabilitation services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and cardiac rehab.

These services address your ability to perform daily living activities, strength, coordination, balance, endurance, swallowing ability, speech deficits, walking ability, pain, functional environment, and many more areas that allow you to function more independently. Each program is tailored to your individual needs and may include one or more types of therapy. Though you may have the ability via DIRECT ACCESS to see a physical therapist without a doctor’s order in our outpatient location, most of these services are initiated by your medical doctor.

ELITE therapists have the unique ability to create a seamless continuum of care between our multiple settings by communicating amongst team members to ensure the best care is provided to our patients. We look forward to helping you or your family member live your best life.

Types of Therapy

Physical therapy (PT) helps you restore the use of your muscles, bones, and nervous system through manual therapy, therapeutic exercises and activities, and many other modalities and specialized techniques. PT aims to relieve pain; improve strength, balance, and mobility; and train the patient to perform important everyday tasks to return them to prior activities ranging from high-level sports to simple, functional activities.

Occupational therapy helps you regain the ability to do everyday tasks and activities by restoring old skills or teaching new skills. You can adjust to disabilities through adaptive equipment, orthotics, and/or modify your home environment to promote independent function.

Speech therapy (SLP) works to assess and treat speech, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Speech disorders result from difficulties producing sounds correctly or fluently or having trouble with voice. Language disorders target deficits with receptive (understanding others) and expressive (sharing ideas, thoughts, etc.) language skills due to loss or developmental delays. Cognitive-communication disorders include problems organizing thoughts, paying attention, remembering, planning, and/or problem-solving. Swallowing disorders (dysphagia) are feeding and swallowing difficulties.

Cardiac Rehab is a comprehensive medically supervised program that should be done after a patient has had cardiac surgery or treatment for a heart issue such as a heart attack or congestive heart failure. Cardiac Rehab helps your heart recover and become stronger. Cardiac Rehab programs include 36 sessions completed at a rate of 2 to 3 times per week but can vary depending on your doctor’s recommendations. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States.
