Casa Colina's Therapies at a Glance
Throughout this area of our site, you will read about the many types of
physical rehabilitation offered at Casa Colina. We thought it might be
helpful to first define or describe these different approaches to rehabilitation:
Physical therapy works to resolve physical impairments, improve functional
mobility and return to an optimal level of functional independence. Our
licensed physical therapy professionals are specially trained in helping
patients with musculoskeletal dysfunctions, sports-related injuries, post-surgical
rehabilitation, back and neck pain, burns, neurologic disorders, amputations,
wound care and vestibular disorders. They will precisely analyze your,
or your loved ones, movements and identify abnormal mechanics in order
to design specific exercises to help accelerate the recovery process.
Occupational therapy involves the activities of daily living. Its goals
include improving performance, preventing illness and promoting adaptation
in the face of life-changing disabilities. Our licensed occupational therapists
will work on cognitive retraining and examine your, or your loved ones,
normal routine at home, work, school or out in the community. Then they
will use or provide adaptive techniques or devices to help you remain
as independent as possible. They will use their expertise in the upper
extremity, including range of motion, splinting and exercises to help
you reach your fullest potential.
A specialized type of occupational therapy is hand therapy, which provides
assessment and treatment for acquired or congenital hand disorders. Our
unique program provides comprehensive and efficient solutions for hand
and upper extremity problems, including activities-of-daily-living practice,
non-dominant hand training, on-site work evaluation, post-operative therapy,
prosthetic training, scar management, sensory re-education and desensitization,
custom static and dynamic splinting, sterile wound care and suture removal,
strengthening, and therapeutic exercise.
Speech and language pathology helps patients with language, cognitive,
speech or swallowing difficulties. Our licensed speech language pathologists
focus on all areas of communication, including comprehension, expression,
speech clarity, reading and writing. They assess and treat all areas of
cognition, including memory attention, problem solving, and safety. They
will help you, or your loved one, improve in these areas through a variety
of strategies that include exercises, electrical stimulation and education
- so that patients may return to the highest level of independence possible.
