Rehabilitation therapies can reverse many disabling conditions or help patients cope with deficits or disabilities that cannot be reversed by medical care. Rehabilitation services address your physical, psychological and environmental needs and help you restore your physical functions and/or modify your physical and social environment. Each program is tailored to your individual needs and may include one or more types of therapy. Your physician usually coordinates the efforts of the rehabilitation team.

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 normal, everyday tasks and activities by restoring old skills or teaching new skills. You are able to adjust to disabilities through adaptive equipment, orthotics and/or modification of 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.
