Grady has some of the region’s most experienced rehabilitation therapists, including specialists in occupational and physical therapy, and speech and language services.
Occupational therapists enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent – or live with – injury, illness, or disability. Our licensed occupational therapists treat patients through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They help these patients develop, recover, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for daily living and working.
Occupational therapists routinely help children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, help people to recover from injury to regain skills, and provide support for older adults who experience physical and cognitive changes.
Physical therapists show patients how to prevent or manage their conditions by using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. Our licensed physical therapists are highly-educated health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility, often without expensive surgery and while reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications.
Physical therapists also work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs. These therapists also work with burn and wound patients to perform hydrotherapy needed to help restore mobility and promote healing.
Speech-language pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Our licensed speech-language pathologists work with patients of all ages to help them overcome speech disorders, language disorders, and social communication disorders.
They also treat cognitive-communication disorders that usually result from a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or dementia.
