PHYSICAL THERAPY
Progressive’s team of physical therapists are professionals with extensive clinical experience. They examine, diagnose, and prevent or treat conditions that limit the body’s ability to move and function in daily life.

BALANCE AND FALLS PROGRAM
We can be especially helpful to those who have suffered a stroke or hip fracture, have osteoporosis, experienced a recent change in mental status, or are taking medication that causes dizziness or weakness.

Our Fall Prevention Program
Lymph-edema occurs when the normal drainage of fluids is disrupted by blockage caused by infection, cancer, and scar tissue. In the early stages, the swelling is mild. Compression garments, exercise, and elevation of the affected limb can be effective. But for severe swelling, the physical therapist will use a complete decongestive therapy using manual lymphatic drainage. This feels like a light form of massage to improve the flow of lymph, followed by compression bandaging to reduce swelling.

  • Fall risk evaluation of patients who have not fallen
  • Balance and mobility treatment programs
  • Gait training and stair management
  • Instruction on personal care and light housekeeping
  • Home safety assessment and durable medical equipment recommendations
  • Four to eight weeks of treatment by licensed, on-staff therapists
  • Goal of improving function, safety, strength, and endurance

ORTHOPEDIC POST-SURGICAL REHAB
Therapy can be initiated prior to surgery in order to help speed up the recovery process following surgery. Therapy after a knee, back, hip, or shoulder surgery will result in a better range of motion, improved flexibility, increased strength, gait/walking progress, and increased function.

Our occupational therapists help our patients improve their ability to perform tasks in living environments. Our team includes:

Speech-language pathologists or speech therapists assess, diagnose, treat, and help prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, and fluency.

WOMEN’S HEALTH

  • Post Mastectomy Care
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

  • Works with individuals who suffer from physically, mentally, developmentally, or emotionally disabling conditions
  • Uses treatments to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of our patients
  • Helps the patients not only to improve their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities but also to compensate for permanent loss of function with a goal of independence, productivity, and a satisfying life

SPEECH THERAPY
Speech, language, and swallowing difficulties can result from a variety of causes, including stroke, brain injury or deterioration, developmental delays or disorders, learning disabilities, and such.

Falls are not an inevitable result of aging. When identified early and properly treated, the risk of falling can be reduced, allowing people to continue with their everyday activities. Still, more than 90 percent of hip fractures are the result of older patients falling.
