Rehabilitation

Providing an array of services at Parmer Medical Center, the rehabilitation department is comprised of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.

Physical therapy services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis includes but is not limited to modalities for pain control (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, TENS, heat and ice).  Stretching and flexibility exercises, deep tissue massage, strengthening exercise, balance training, coordination activities, neuromuscular rehabilitation, cardiovascular exercise.

In addition to standard physical therapy, PMC offers speech therapy which focuses on receptive language, or the ability to understand words spoken to you, and expressive language, or the ability to use words to express yourself. It also deals with the mechanics of producing words, such as articulation, pitch, fluency, and volume. Adults may need speech therapy after a stroke or traumatic accident that changes their ability to use language; for children, it generally involves pursuing milestones that have been delayed.

Although it sounds like it should involve finding a job or developing work skills, occupational therapy actually deals with strengthening fine motor skills like writing, cutting, shoe-tying and using utensils. For adults recovering from an accident or stroke, treatment may include work-related skills; for children, whose "occupation" is school and play, it will focus more sharply on developmental milestones and skills required for playground and academic activities.
