Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists evaluate and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to seniors, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities. Physical therapists use an individual's history and physical examination to establish a treatment plan to promote mobility, functional ability, and quality of life.

 

Our physical therapists provide health care services to patients of all ages and health conditions:

  • Infants with birth defects to assist in improving motor development and functional mobility

  • People with weakness or poor coordination to assist in preventing falls or injury

  • Those affected by a stroke to regain movement, function, and independent living

  • Patients with low back problems to reduce pain and improve function

  • Patients with surgical intervention such as fractures, total hip or knee replacements, rotator cuff repairs to return to activities or daily living such as dressing, bathing and household duties

  • People with acute pain and injury to restore function

  • Individuals with chronic pain from injury or ongoing disease processes to return to prior level of function or to learn how to manage pain/disability

  • Patients with cardiac involvement to improve endurance and achieve independence

  • People with work-related injuries to return to their jobs

  • Patients with cancer to regain strength and relive discomfort

  • Preventive exercise programs for general health and fitness

NDHC therapists are specially trained in many areas including:

  • LSVT-Big, which was designed as a treatment for Parkinsons disease, but has also been found to be highly effective with other neurological disorders

  • Pediatric movement and development problems

  • Strength and conditioning for athletes

  • Specialized exercise prescription

  • Vestibular rehabilitation

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapy staff specializes in pediatrics, sensory integration, hand therapy, lymphedema and ergonomics.

Occupational therapy uses treatments that focus on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives, whether that's playing and learning for children, completing daily living skills like driving or cooking for adults, or returning to work. 

Our team will help you achieve maximum independence and enhance quality of life.

Who benefits from occupational therapy?
Those with conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Strokes and other neurological concerns

  • Sensory processing/integrative disorders

  • Traumatic injuries (brain or spinal cord)

  • Learning problems

  • Broken bones or other orthopedic injuries

  • Developmental delays

  • Post-surgical conditions

  • Lymphedema, swelling of the arms and legs

  • Amputations

  • Hand injuries

  • Job site evaluations to prevent injury

 

Our occupational therapists evaluate and determine which areas are affected and how they can assist that person to perform these activities in a more functional and independent way. Some disabilities and areas of dysfunction are obvious, but others are not. The obvious is when we help patients regain function after recent onset of illnesses or injuries, after a stroke or developmental delays such as with autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome. The less obvious are the more silent disabilities such as mental health, early development concerns/issues, the inability to occupy one's time in any of the work, rest or play areas, and difficulties associated with sensory processing disorders.
