At UH Parma Medical Center, orthopaedic rehabilitation programs are designed around each patient’s needs to decrease pain, increase mobility, and regain strength of affected joints and extremities. Common problems treated include:
Neurological rehabilitation is geared toward patients with impaired central or peripheral nervous systems. Treatment at UH Parma Medical Center includes restoration of normal movement patterns and activities of daily living, as well as improving perceptual motor skills, communication and cognition, or mental processing.
With this type of specialized rehabilitation, individualized programs are developed based on the job description and a worksite assessment. Generally, areas of industrial rehabilitation can include outpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy and functional evaluations.
Lymphedema management is designed to educate patients on managing lymphedema through a variety of therapeutic services. This condition occurs when fluid collects in tissues and results in excessive swelling, also called edema. Decongestive therapy is primarily used for the management of lymphedema and can include manual lymphatic drainage, compression bandaging, therapeutic exercises or a combination of treatments.
Aquatic rehabilitation is a therapy option that can be used individually or in group sessions. During an aquatic rehabilitation session, a decrease in joint compressive forces increases ease of movement for the patient, while warm water aides a quicker return to function.
Speech therapy programs are tailored to patients of any age with speech or language disorders, as well as voice and swallowing disorders. To improve communications skills, therapy services may include both speech therapy to focus on how sounds are made, or language therapy to improve understanding of words or cognitive training.
Sports medicine rehabilitation programs are designed with an athletic trainer for sports-specific skill training for strength and improved function for specific injuries.
