Therapy programs can be done with inpatient care and outpatient care settings.
Therapy is one of the vital tools Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital uses to care for our neighbors in the community. Making sure patients get as much of their strength, mobility, speech, and the skills of daily living back as possible is important to every member of our team. We are proud to offer several different rehabilitation services to Nolan County and the Sweetwater area.
Our therapists work with their patients to improve their strength, balance, cardiovascular health as well as their overall mobility. These types of therapy programs are custom tailored to each individual patient, so a patient need not worry that PT will be too hard on the first day. We will start slow and build up, so you are comfortable as you regain your abilities. We see patients that have suffered major injuries and we see patients that are recovering from minor injuries. The Physical Therapy programs can be done with inpatient care and outpatient care settings.
Occupational Therapy or OT is a group of therapeutic activities that are customized to help patients get back to their daily lives and be able to perform the tasks of daily living. Our therapy team will first assess your needs, whether work related activities are what need to be recovered, or simple daily tasks need to be performed in your everyday life. Once we determine what deficits need to be addressed. We put together a comprehensive program to get you back to where you need to be. That might be back on the job or back to simply being able to do laundry at your home. Our therapists work with our patients to retrain their body to perform certain tasks or learn new ways to perform tasks.
Patients that have suffered injury, have had heart or head trauma may either lose the ability to speak, or their ability to form words and sentences may have been reduced. Our therapists work with these patients to relearn the skills necessary to communicate with the world around them. We have specifically trained speech therapists on staff that specialize in cases such as stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury, industrial accident, or severe heart problems. We know having trouble communicating can be a scary and a demanding situation to deal with, not only for you but for your loved ones as well. We are here to help you get back what you are missing.
Living an active lifestyle can have a huge positive impact on someone’s overall health. But for some of us (all of us) we are not as young as we used to be. So, if a suddenly you decide to play in a softball tournament all weekend or your kids want you to play full court basketball, we can help. Injuries happen and with the proper treatment regimen put together by a professional, we will get you up and going in no time. We work with patients in the outpatient setting that have injuries that they suffered trying to relive their glory days.
