Treatments and Services
We work closely with you and your medical provider to develop an individualized treatment plan that will help meet your health goals and use the latest technology and treatment protocols. Depending on your individual condition, your provider and rehabilitation specialist may recommend a range of treatments.
Our team of physical, occupational, and speech therapy experts will assist you with clinic and at-home therapeutic exercises and activities, assistive devices, task modification, and other daily coping strategies. We provide neurorehabilitation (combines neurology and rehabilitative medicine) and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Lymphedema evaluations and management are performed by a specially-trained, licensed occupational therapist certified by the Lymphology Association of North America. Speech and swallowing therapy is provided by a licensed speech/language pathologist certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Pediatric patients are treated at the WVU Medicine Children’s Neurodevelopmental Center, and our physical, occupational, and speech therapists are experts in providing care to children with developmental disorders and delays, as well as functional difficulties that result from injury and illness. We work with families and a multidisciplinary team of providers to help each child achieve his or her optimal developmental and functional potential.
