St. Clair Checkup
EXPANDED PHYSICAL, OCCUPATIONAL & SPEECH THERAPY SERVICES
Rehabilitation plays a key role in recovery from injury, surgery or illness. Physical therapy (PT) is for conditions that affect function, movement or range of motion. Occupational therapy (OT) focuses on helping reestablish fine and gross motor skills to help perform daily living tasks. And speech therapy (ST) helps patients regain swallowing ability and also works to improve recovery from speech and language disorders.
A combination of the two—or even all three together—can strengthen your comeback.
“They have different objectives, but the therapies often complement each other in advancing recovery,” says Lauren Cerqua, Manager of Therapy Services at St. Clair Health.
PT, OT and ST can also help patients recover from a stroke. The experienced therapists at St. Clair Health collaborate on a plan for each individual.
“We’re driven by a multi-service mindset,” Lauren says. “To get it right for every patient, every time to the best of our ability—and no two cases are exactly the same.”
