MJH Falls awareness day


Physical Therapy

Physical therapy restores function for individuals who have experienced neuromuscular or skeletal dysfunction. Individualized therapeutic treatment may include:

  • Training in mobility, gait stability, posture, and positioning
  • Exercise programs to increase muscle function, coordination, and endurance
  • Joint and soft tissue mobilization to increase range-of-motion
  • Pain management


Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy assists individuals with adapting to their social and physical environment. Therapists enhance patient functionality through:

  • Education and training in areas such as dressing, bathing, eating and grooming
  • Activities for memory, orientation and cognitive integration
  • Adaptive techniques or equipment to overcome physical disabilities
  • Strengthening and coordination exercises
  • Exercises to reduce the effects of arthritis or other conditions to maintain normal joint movement


Speech-Language Pathology

Speech-language pathologists address communication and swallowing dysfunction. Treatment plans are designed for individual needs, such as:

  • Recovery of speech, language and memory skills
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication, including programs for the hearing impaired
  • Oral muscle strength and functioning required for speaking and swallowing
  • Appropriate diet recommendations


Rehabilitation helps patients get back to active living. Patients make appropriate recoveries through physical, occupational and/or speech therapies. Treatments are offered throughout the week at our well-equipped center by licensed professional therapists.

Our team develops comprehensive, individualized care plans to maximize patients’ physical, social, and emotional independence, safely and quickly.
