Lymphedema is swelling that happens when the lymph system becomes blocked or damaged and fluid (lymph) builds up in the arms and legs. The condition causes loss of movement and function and reduces the ability to grip.
Our certified lymphedema and wound care therapists focus on controlling swelling by moving lymph through the body. Therapies offered include:
- Compression devices
- Manual lymph drainage
- Pressure garments
Pelvic floor therapy
Our physical therapists have specialized training in pelvic floor therapy. Patients who have pelvic floor dysfunction receive therapy in our private rooms. Treatment options include:
- Bladder and bowel retraining
- Pelvic floor muscle strengthening
- Manual therapy and soft tissue mobilization
- Pelvic floor relaxation/down training
- Electromyogram (EMG) biofeedback
When you experience unsteadiness, dizziness, and vertigo, it can be debilitating and greatly affect the quality of life. Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program used to treat the cause of balance issues and vertigo.
Our certified vestibular therapists focus on identifying the source of the symptoms and develop a customized program which may include:
- BPPV maneuvers
- Habituation and adaptation exercise
- Gaze stabilization and visual tracking exercises
- Gait and balance training
- Manual therapy
Our speech-language pathologists care for patients with swallowing or speech disorders. Our speech therapies include:
- Articulation therapy
- Augmentative and alternative communication systems, including body language and electronic aids
- Voice therapy for Parkinson's disease
- Oral-motor exercises to improve feeding and swallowing
- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation system therapy
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation system therapy
We are proud to offer a breakthrough method used in the management and treatment of swallowing disorders. Our neuromuscular electrical stimulation system retrains throat muscles to swallow. This therapy reeducates the functional muscle-use patterns necessary to initiate or reestablish swallowing. In as little as three sessions, patients with swallowing disorders, such as dysphagia, have seen improvements. Some patients experienced dramatic improvements after 20 sessions. This advanced therapy, combined with dilation, has also produced excellent results for patients with dysphagia.
Rehabilitation support groups
Our rehabilitation support groups help patients gain insight by sharing their experiences with others:
- Chatterboxes is a group for patients with communication deficits as a result of a cerebral vascular accident (stroke) or neurological disorders. We encourage caregivers and spouses to attend. This group is led by our speech-language pathologists, and it meets every other Thursday, from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
- Lymphedema Support Group is led by a licensed physical therapist and meets on the third Wednesday of each month, from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
