Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Services

Loretto Hospital offers comprehensive rehabilitation services to individuals who suffer from a debilitating injury, illness, speech-language disorder, or who were born with a physical disability.  Our highly credentialed and licensed therapists partner with physicians to evaluate every patient to develop specialized treatment programs especially for them. Depending on the condition or diagnosis, our therapists help improve the patient’s range of motion, muscle strength, coordination, motor skills, cognition, and speech to help patients establish more independent, productive, and satisfying lives.

Physical Therapy

As highly trained healthcare professionals, our physical therapists specialize in dealing with individuals with mild-to-serious health-related conditions and post-operative rehabilitation. Our physical therapists are proficient in reducing pain, improving and restoring the patient’s mobility in order to achieve optimum health without further risk of re-injury; and once physical therapy is complete, patients can resume their daily activities.

Occupational Therapy

At Loretto Hospital, our occupational therapists work with individuals that suffer from mentally, physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabling conditions to improve their ability to perform tasks in living and working environments. Our therapists possess a high-level of expertise in developing a specialized treatment plan to enhance the patient’s basic motor functions and/or reasoning abilities to compensate for permanent loss of function.  Our occupational therapists may assist patients with basic activities of daily living, such as eating or dressing.

Speech-Language Pathology

Speech-language pathologists assist adults and children with diagnosed speech and language disorders as a result of a developmental issue or medical illness. Our therapist helps patients by improving their speaking ability and comprehension, reading, writing, cognition, memory, and swallowing.
