Physical Therapy is commonly prescribed to help patients recover strength and mobility after surgical procedures, rehabilitate damaged joints, alleviate pain from chronic conditions, and build strength to prevent further injury. It is often used by physicians to augment surgical or medical treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. Therapy at Redmond Regional is done by licensed physical therapists trained in a college program to help people return to the greatest level of functioning possible.
Speech and Language Pathology
Redmond Regional Speech and Language Pathologists are professionals certified through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association who diagnose and treat speech, language, and related disorders including oral motor problems. Speech and language problems may result from hearing loss, brain injury or deterioration, cerebral palsy, stroke, cleft palate, or emotional problems. Our speech and language pathologists teach patients to make sounds, improve their voices, increase their language sk8ills and improve swallowing ability. In addition, our pathologists will provide treatment to eliminate or minimize the effect of difficulties and teach patients strategies to cope with their disorders. At Redmond Regional we recognize the value of speech and language in human relations, and we strive to give each patient his/her highest possible quality level in this area.
Redmond Regional Occupational Therapy is devoted to helping individuals achieve independence. Our therapists customize treatment programs aimed at improving abilities used in daily life.
