Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
When an injury happens to the brain, it can affect multiple areas of a person’s functioning. Considerable recovery is possible, but it takes significant time, understanding and rehabilitation.
At Tranquility Nursing and Rehab, our Therapy team is quickly gaining the reputation of helping people drastically improve when other communities could not help them.
Many of our therapies are used only at Tranquility Nursing and Rehab. All of our therapists are licensed and experienced.
We offer physical, occupational and speech therapy. We also believe fun activities for residents are therapeutic.
Our trained activities therapist leads daily activities to engage residents in a fun environment. Laughter is said to be the best medicine and we make sure our residents laugh every day.
Physical Therapy is used to help patients gain strength, balance and independent mobility. Occupational Therapy helps residents be able to perform activities of daily living, such as eating, bathing and dressing. Speech Therapy helps residents improve their communications and cognitive skills. An important part of Speech Therapy for our residents is teaching safe swallowing techniques.
Our well-appointed Therapy gym has the latest equipment appropriate for our patients who are recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury, advanced pulmonary conditions and stroke. It includes electrotherapy equipment, such as painless electrical stimulation (e-stim), Nu-Step, which is a recumbent cross training machine, and many other aids. But nothing replaces the human touch. We utilize manual manipulation in our therapy, including massage.
Expert care is tailored to each individual.
