Lourdes outpatient rehabilitation services include occupational therapy, speech therapy and physical therapy to guide recovery from injury, illness or surgery. Our orthopedic gyms, housed at Lourdes Fitness Center, utilizes the most advanced rehabilitation equipment available today. Experienced physical therapists and assistants guide each patient's recovery, addressing individual needs and altering therapy as physical condition improves. Special classes, such as aquatic therapy, are offered for orthopedic patients to reduce joint stress and pain while increasing strength and range of motion.
Lourdes outpatient rehabilitation services include:
- Physical Therapy (PT) helps decrease pain and increase strength, range of motion and ability to perform basic motor skills. PT is helpful for athletes with a sprain, strain or fracture, patients recovering from knee injuries including ACL, PCL MCL, LCL and meniscus tears; patients recovering from orthopedic surgery such as join replacement, patients suffering from arthritis, back, shoulder or hip pain and other chronic conditions; patients with work-related injuries such as tendonitis or bursitis, patients with neurological conditions, loss of balance or difficulty walking.
- Occupational Therapy (OT) facilitates independence, helping patients regain basic life skills such as walking, sitting, standing, climbing stairs and more. OT is helpful for patients recovering from injury or surgery, patients with functional limitations following stroke or heart attack, and patients with chronic conditions such as arthritis or multiple sclerosis.
- Speech Therapy (ST) is helpful for patients who have speech-language dysfunction or a swallowing disorder following a stroke or brain injury. ST is also useful for pediatric patients with delayed language development and patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
