|Rehabilitation - Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy
PVH offers physical, occupational and speech therapies. Our staff serves pediatrics to the geriatric population. We are committed to helping our patients regain the independence they desire. We believe the comfort and convenience of these services, performed close to home with family, are vital for patients to reach optimal rehabilitation.
PT services are designed to help people recover more effectively from acute trauma, surgery, recent or congenital illness, work or sports-related musculoskeletal injuries, motor vehicle accidents, chronic pain and disease. PVH offers a wide range of physical therapy services, including orthopedic, burn/wound care, occupational medicine, neurological, and geriatrics.
The staff at the Rehabilitation and Wellness Center use several different tools and techniques to diagnose and treat your injuries. These tools range from several hands-on techniques to using advanced medical equipment. The center has modern and regularly updated machinery to help with your recovery, including a universal gym, aerobic equipment, NUSTEP, treadmill, and specialized pediatric equipment. A diabetes exercise program is also available.
Occupational therapy helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. The term “occupation” refers to life activities that people engage in to maintain an independent and productive lifestyle.
OT services are customized, using several tools, techniques, and treatment programs to improve one’s ability to perform daily life activities. These treatment programs might include both home and work related evaluations with recommendations for care and equipment.
At Penobscot Valley Hospital, OT services are provided for pediatric, adult and geriatric patients. Services are available for patients in the hospital and on an outpatient basis.
Our professionals are concerned with the evaluation, treatment, prevention, and research in human communication and its disorders. They treat speech and language disorders and work with individuals of all ages--from infants to the elderly.
Our staff diagnoses and evaluates speech problems, such as fluency (stuttering), articulation, voice disorders, or language problems, such as aphasia and delayed language and related disorders, such as dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). They work collaboratively with other rehabilitation specials and clinical staff in the care of patients.
Speech-Language Pathologists provide services to improve communication skills. They include, but are not limited to:
- Helping people with articulation disorders learn proper production of speech sounds
- Assisting people who have difficulty swallowing as a result of illness, surgery, stroke, or injury
- Assisting people with voice disorders to improve voice
- Pediatric speech therapy
Speech Therapy is provided at Penobscot Valley Hospital for inpatients.
