Physical therapists apply research and proven techniques to help people get back in motion. All physical therapists are required to receive a graduate degree – either a masters or a clinical doctorate — from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice. They are trusted health care professionals with extensive clinical experience who examine, 诊断, and then prevent or treat conditions that limit the body’s ability to move and function in daily life.
我们的目标是帮助病人恢复, 维护, and promote optimal physical function in a variety of settings (inpatient, 门诊, 和家庭保健). 物理治疗师会查看每个人的病史, 然后测试和测量力量和活动范围, 平衡与协调, 的姿势, 肌肉性能, 呼吸, 运动功能. They will also determine the patients’ ability to be independent and return to 社区 and/or workplace. 在他们的检查之后, they will develop a plan of care using a variety of treatment techniques that help you move, 减少疼痛, 恢复功能, 预防残疾. Your physical therapist can also help you prevent loss of mobility and motion by developing a fitness- and wellness-oriented program tailored to your specific needs.

As well as the Baltimore Therapeutic Exercise (BTE) machine which assists in simulating many functions required for patients to return to work, 体育活动, 甚至日常工作，比如打开一个罐子.

Occupational therapy as a profession is concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enhancing the individual’s ability to participate, 通过改变环境, 或者通过调整活动来更好地支持参与.
Occupational therapy relies on understanding the importance of an activity to an individual, 能够分析身体状况, 活动的心理和社会组成部分, 然后调整活动, 环境, 和/或使他们能够恢复活动的人. 职业治疗师解决了这个问题, “Why does this person have difficulties managing his or her daily activities (or occupations), and what can we adapt to make it possible for him or her to man年龄 better and how will this then impact his or her health and well-being?” Occupational therapy gives people the “skills for the job of living” necessary for “living life to its fullest.”
We strive to make it possible for each patient to reach their maximum independence in the home, 社区, 在工作中. 无论是加强还是重新学习一项任务, 获得适应性设备, 甚至改变家庭/工作环境, 这些都是我们的职业治疗人员要解决的问题. They will determine a plan of care based on each person’s specific condition and goals.

Speech langu年龄 pathology promotes effective communication by focusing on the science of communication and related disorders. 语言治疗师处理各种各样的诊断, from patients with communication disorders to those with swallowing problems.
Some patients have experienced an illness or injury which has left them unable to communicate well. 他们可能不再知道日常用品的名称, 他们可能知道自己想说什么, 但却找不到他们想要的词语, or it could be that they have muscle weakness that prevents them from making the proper sounds needed to communicate effectively. 根据患者的评价, the therapist will look at all of these areas and perform a number of tests to determine each plan of care on an individualized basis.
吞咽评估也由语言病理学家执行. 有两种类型的吞咽评估, bedside evaluation and video fluoroscopic swallow evaluation (cookie swallow). For each of these the therapist will take a detailed history from the patient or family member. 为了实际的评估, the patient will be given food and liquid in a variety of consistencies to determine the patients swallowing function. 在视频透视下吞咽评价, these substances are given with barium so the therapist and 放射科医生 can see how the food travels to the stomach.
The speech therapist sees patients in inpatient, 门诊, and home health settings.
