Recovering from an injury or illness can seem like a long road. But now therapy services to assist in this process can be found close to home for area residents. Experienced, licensed therapy professionals provide hands-on treatment to help patients return to the most normal, active and satisfying lives possible. Facilities at Langley and Monkey Island feature extensions of Craig General Hospital’s rehabilitation department, including physical, speech and occupational therapies.
Grand Lake Medical Park Monkey Island offers an aquatherapy program unlike any in our corner of Oklahoma. The state-of-the-art therapy pool features multiple workout stations including a underwater treadmill and current for swimming in place, strength training and various phases of rehabilitation.
Occupational therapists and their assistants work with individuals whose lives have been disrupted by illness, injury, normal aging and developmental disability. Occupational therapy programs are designed to increase a patient's independence, working to restore health, confidence and self-sufficiency.
Some of the more common problems treated are those associated with stroke, head injury, neurological disorders and related disorders that result in a decline in the ability to care for oneself.
Physical therapists provide medical support to each patient's physician by evaluating, treating and preventing a wide variety of movement and function problems that often accompany illnesses or injuries. These hands-on specialists work with patients on an inpatient and outpatient basis, helping them increase movement potential, decrease pain and achieve therapy goals for optimal health.
Our physical therapists and therapy assistants emphasize restoring function and developing skills that will make patients more mobile and safe in their living environment. Some of the more common problems treated are those associated with stroke, head injury, joint replacement, fractures, or back and neck problems.
Speech-language pathologists are specially trained and experienced in the evaluation and treatment of disorders of speech, language, cognition and swallowing. Therapy programs are designed to improve the patient's ability to communicate with family members and caregivers.
Stroke, head or neck surgery, head injury, certain cancers and neurological disorders are among the most common problems that can be treated with speech-language therapies.
