Rehabilitation


The Rehabilitation Department at Barnesville Hospital offers several inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech language pathology. Our highly trained therapists and staff are experienced in treating a wide variety of health issues to relieve pain, improve strength, and regain mobility.

Our caring staff works with adults, adolescents, and pediatric patients to help them return to their daily routine, and we provide any education to family and patients related to the current challenges their experiencing.

A physician referral is needed for all rehabilitation services. We will develop a treatment program individualized to your needs and communicate to your referring physician for approval.
