Rehabilitation Services

Wetzel County Hospital offers several inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Our highly trained therapists and staff are experienced in treating a wide variety of health issues to relieve pain, improve strength, and regain mobility. This is offered on site at the hospital as well as at our Woodsfield, Ohio clinic.

Your rehabilitation team will develop a patient care plan tailor-made for your specific needs. Our therapists prepare each patient for a safe return home by addressing assistive device recommendations/training and home safety setup.

Conditions we treat with rehabilitation services include:

  • Balance impairments and fall risk
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease
  • Orthopedic conditions, such as joint replacement and fractures
  • Post-surgery recovery

Other rehabilitation services we offer include the only aquatic therapy program in the area, functional/trigger point dry needling for pain relief, and neuromuscular vital stimulation and modified barium swallow testing for swallowing disorders.

For those experiencing an acute illness, we also provide a swing bed program as an alternative to prolonged hospitalization or short-term nursing facility, including skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services.
