Once admitted , the rehab therapy team rolls into action. The team consists of physical therapists (PT), occupational therapists (OT), a speech therapist, and a rehab aide who work together based on the individual needs of each patient.
The Physical Therapist assesses and treats impairments in strength and function that occur as a result of injury, disease, age-related degeneration, or environmental factors. Physical therapy treatments are performed by the physical therapist.
The Occupational Therapist assesses the impact that a decline in function has in the patients’ ability to participate in their life by performing everyday tasks such as dressing and bathing, or being able to return to work or engage in previous hobbies. Occupational therapy treatments are performed by the occupational therapist.
