Here’s an in-depth look at rehabilitation available at Borgess:

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy utilizes specially designed exercises and equipment to help people regain or improve their physical abilities. Physical therapists focus on restoring motion by improving joint and muscle function, as well as decreasing pain. Our team specializes in t he McKenzie Method, also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). This involves research-based, active movements and education. It is a helpful model for treating spine, arm and leg pain. A certified McKenzie physical therapist will assess your pain through a series of safe movements and will then create a treatment plan for you to reduce pain and help restore you to your old self. Our physical therapists also provide you with educational tools that will help you gain your independence back and prevent pain from returning .

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on enabling people to participate in the activities of daily life. Occupational therapists evaluate areas of complaint, and analyze the physical, environmental, psychosocial and mental factors that may be contributing to each patient’s underlying problem. Problems treated can range from difficulty getting dressed after a stroke to needing a splint or treatment following a hand injury. Occupational therapy helps improve skill, mobility and strength, as well as offers creative solutions and resources for carrying out activities with less pain.

Speech-Language Therapy

Speech therapy addresses communication difficulties and disorders, as well as swallowing ability. Speech-language therapists work with individuals to improve speech, language, difficulty swallowing and cognitive impairments after illness or injury. Some of the conditions treated by these professionals include stroke, developmental delay and head injuries. Partnering with patients and their families, speech therapists help restore lost abilities and implement alternative strategies for communication.
