Rehabilitative Therapy: Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy

Rehabilitative therapy, also known as rehab therapy, refers to the therapeutic healing treatment that a patient receives following an illness, injury, or surgery. Apismellis Homecare offers a comprehensive rehabilitative therapy programs that includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. The goal of each of these types of rehab therapy is to help an individual recover from challenges or problems in order to function at their best ability. Our professional rehabilitative therapy programs are available in the patient's home, making them especially convenient for seniors and adults who find traveling outside of the home difficult.

In general, rehabilitative therapy helps patients resume as healthy and active of a lifestyle as possible after an illness or injury. This illness or injury can include cancer, a stroke, or an automobile accident. Rehab therapy, including specialized physical therapy, can also be used to help individuals return to their normal lifestyle following a major surgery such as joint replacement. Apismellis Homecare offers a Total Joint Replacement Program for patients planning to undergo major hip or knee replacement surgery.

Physical Therapy in a Rehabilitative Therapy Program

Physical therapy can be an important part of the rehabilitative therapy program for individuals recovering from accidents or injuries. Physical therapy involves the use of manipulation, exercise, massage, and other physical activities to condition muscles and restore strength and movement. During rehab therapy, if a patient is too weak to exercise on their own, a physical therapist will gently move the patients arms or legs to build strength. Individuals with more strength who are receiving physical therapy may work with the physical therapist to lift weights and build muscle. Physical therapy is the type of rehabilitative therapy used to restore hip and knee movement and to build strength following total replacement surgery.

Occupational Therapy in Rehab Therapy

Occupation therapy is another type of therapy commonly used in rehabilitative therapy programs. This rehab therapy helps patients with a permanent or temporary impairment in either physical or mental functioning learn to perform daily tasks. For example, occupational therapy can include teaching individuals to perform regular bathing, dressing, or grooming activities. Therefore, occupational therapy, as a type of rehabilitative therapy following illnesses, accidents, or injuries, assists in the development of skills needed for individuals to live independent, satisfying, and productive lives.

Speech Rehabilitative Therapy Programs

Speech therapy is the treatment of speech defects and disorders through the use of exercises and audio-visual aids. The goal of speech therapy is to develop new speech habits. Speech rehabilitative therapy is typically used to help stroke patients relearn to communicate following facial paralyzation. Speech rehabilitation therapy can also help individuals who have experienced damage to their language skills following an accident. For example, brain injury patients and those who have experienced memory loss may have difficulty with the reasoning skills needed for forming coherent language. Speech therapy addresses these problems in an attempt to restore normal speech capabilities.
