What is Inpatient Therapy?

Inpatient Therapy is a particularly powerful treatment option

Inpatient physical therapy care can be initiated soon after hospital admission, including as soon as a few hours after surgery or during the first few days of hospital admission depending on medical stability.

Therapy (physical, occupational and/or speech) intervention begins with a comprehensive evaluation to identify functional deficits and includes the development of an individualized care plan to address those while hospitalized.

What conditions can be treated with inpatient therapy?

Inpatient Physical Therapy (PT)

Broadly, physical therapy involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of “movement dysfunctions”. PT’s examine patients and develop treatment plans that employ techniques that promote mobility, pain reduction, functional restoration, and disability prevention. In addition, PT’s work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

Inpatient Speech Language Pathology (SLP)

Speech-language pathologists assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent speech, language, cognitive, communication, voice, swallowing, fluency, and other related disorders. Speech-language pathologists work with people who cannot make speech sounds, or cannot make them clearly; those with speech rhythm and fluency problems, such as stuttering; people with voice quality problems, such as inappropriate pitch or harsh voice; those with problems understanding and producing language; those who wish to improve their communication skills by modifying an accent; and those with cognitive communication impairments, such as attention, memory, and problem solving disorders. They also work with people who have oral motor problems causing eating and swallowing difficulties.

Inpatient Occupational Therapy (OT)

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
