Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.
Speech language pathologists (SLPs) work within the entire scope of human communications, evaluating and diagnosing condidtions that effect language, speech, swallowing, vocal disturbances and cognitive difficulties. SLPs treat these, as well as a plethora of additional speech/language disorders, in patients of all ages ranging from very young children to seniors.
Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers.
