What Does a Rehabilitation Therapist Do?

Often referred to as physical therapists, rehabilitation professionals treat a wide range of conditions and injuries, not just physical therapy. Rehabilitation therapists are specially trained to treat patients recovering from accidents, injuries or diseases to help them regain their strength and range of motion. Because of their extensive therapy training, the rehabilitation professionals at Greater Regional Health will work with you to determine the best therapy treatment plan for you.

Rehabilitation therapists often specialize in specific areas of therapy. At Greater Regional Health, we offer a variety of rehabilitation services.

Skilled Care Rehabilitation Specialists

Our skilled care services provide a bridge between hospital and home, helping patients learn and practice new habits in a supervised environment. Skilled care patients typically require skilled nursing services and/or short-term physical or occupational therapy for 30-60 minutes per day.

Physical Therapy Rehabilitation

People often ask if physical therapy is the same as rehabilitation therapy. While rehabilitation programs can include home care, speech therapy and emotional support, physical therapy rehabilitation focuses on improving patients' ability to move, while also improving general fitness and health. From joint injuries to neurological conditions such as stroke, physical therapists at Greater Regional Health treat a variety of physical conditions.

Athletic Training & Rehabilitation

Our athletic training program is designed for coaches and student athletes, providing personalized rehabilitation and sports medicine services for athletic programs. Our athletic trainers also work with area athletes to prevent injuries and promote health. Their health is our top priority.

Speech Therapy

Language is essential to learning, working and building relationships with family and friends. Our speech therapy professionals are trained to treat speech and language disorders to improve overall communication and quality of life.

What Do Rehabilitation Therapists Treat?

Our inpatient rehabilitation team consists of skilled nurses, nursing assistants, physical, occupational and speech therapists and more to ensure patients can fully rebuild their strength and their lives. Our outpatient care programs offer medical care and treatment that does not require an overnight stay in the hospital.
