South Central Regional Medical Center’s Outpatient Therapy Center offers a variety of services, including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. We have convenient locations in Laurel, Taylorsville, Ellisville, and Bay Springs.
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy helps preserve, develop and restore physical function. It can help restore physical health that has been lost due to injury, disease or other causes.
Physical Therapy may include treatment for pain, muscle spasm, range of motion, strength, posture, balance and endurance. Based on a patient’s needs, specific goals are set for each individual. Some typical goals might be to improve range of motion of a joint, to increase strength in a muscle or to improve the ability to walk.
Because we emphasize active participation and responsibility, we provide you with the information to self-manage your condition between appointments and teach you how to live a healthier lifestyle.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy helps patients return to activities related to their duties at work and home and helps them regain skills and overcome obstacles. Occupational Therapy treatments can include modalities for pain control or muscle stimulation, hand therapy and activities to improve sensory motor processing in pediatric and adult patients with neurological deficits. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to attain independence in all areas of function by implementing treatment goals.
What is Speech Therapy?
Speech Therapy helps restore speech, language, voice and swallowing after a stroke and preserves these functions in patients with Parkinson’s disease, Dementia and other Neurological diseases. Speech Therapy also helps develop speech, language and swallowing for pediatric patients.
Speech Therapy uses many methods to preserve, restore or develop speech, language, voice or swallowing. One method may include electrical stimulation known as Vital Stim. Other methods include Oral Motor Therapy, Apraxia Therapy and Voice Therapy.
Many of our therapist have over 30 years experience with specialized certifications including manual therapy, sports medicine, vestibular rehab and lymphaedema management. From the initial evaluation until the time of discharge, patients receive one-on-one care from our team, a compassionate and skilled group of licensed therapists and therapy assistants – some with almost two decades of therapy experience.
In most cases, the same therapist provides a patient’s care for the duration of treatment. This provides for continuity of care for the patient and improved communication with the referring physician.
