Physical Therapy: By utilizing various techniques and exercises, Crestlines’ physical therapists help individuals recover from injuries, surgeries, or medical conditions that affect their mobility and quality of life. Through targeted assessments and personalized treatment plans, physical therapy aims to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance. Therapists may employ manual techniques, therapeutic exercises, electrical stimulation, or heat and cold therapies to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing. Additionally, they guide patients in relearning movement patterns, correcting posture, and regaining independence in activities of daily living. By focusing on individualized care, physical therapy optimizes recovery, enhances functional abilities, and fosters a faster return to a fulfilling and active lifestyle. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art therapy equipment specifically designed for therapeutic exercise to help you recover from hip and knee replacement, stroke recovery, and more.
Speech Therapy: Speech therapy aims to improve speech clarity, language skills, cognitive abilities, and swallowing function. Speech-language pathologists assess and develop customized treatment plans based on the individual’s specific needs. They use a variety of techniques and exercises to target speech production, language comprehension, and expression. Additionally, speech therapy may involve the use of augmentative and alternative communication devices to enhance communication for individuals with severe speech impairments. By working collaboratively with other healthcare professionals, our speech therapists have seen many positive outcomes.
Occupational Therapy: Our occupational therapists focus on helping individuals regain and develop skills necessary for daily living and meaningful activities. Each treatment plan is individualized and strives to improve functional independence and enhance overall quality of life. Occupational therapy interventions may include teaching adaptive techniques, providing assistive devices, and modifying the environment to facilitate participation in activities such as self-care, work, and leisure. Therapists also address cognitive impairments, sensory processing difficulties, and psychosocial challenges to promote optimal engagement and well-being. By empowering individuals to perform essential tasks and pursue their passions, occupational therapy promotes independence, confidence, and a successful transition back to their desired roles and routines.
VitalStim® Therapy: We are proud to offer this innovative program offers a safe and effective solution for individuals facing difficulty swallowing or dysphagia. The therapy involves the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) in a non-invasive manner. Through electrical stimulation, this technique aids in muscle strengthening and recruitment, facilitating the rehabilitation of the swallow function. VitalStim® Therapy serves as an adjunct modality, meaning it complements traditional swallowing therapy. Skilled clinicians administer VitalStim® while simultaneously guiding patients through swallowing exercises. The benefits of VitalStim® Therapy include its safety and effectiveness for patients. It has been shown to accelerate the recovery time from a restricted diet and help patients achieve sustained improvement and long-term results. Additionally, VitalStim® can be particularly valuable for patients who previously experienced unsuccessful attempts at dysphagia therapy. Moreover, it has demonstrated success in helping patients become independent of feeding tubes.
