Rehabilitation Services at WellStar Windy Hill Hospital provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy treatment plans based on the needs of each individual.
Our goal is to maximize the functionality of our patients who have had an acute or chronic illness. Each specialty provides individual care – yet, they function collaboratively to maximize a patient’s potential.
Patients and their families have essential roles on our team, too. Together, we work to maximize the patient’s level of independence.
Physical Therapy – the goals are to improve mobility, balance, lower extremity weakness and gait. The use of assistive devices for walking is evaluated by the Physical Therapist.
Occupational Therapy – the goals are to improve activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, meal preparation, etc.) and upper extremity weakness. The use of adaptive and assistive equipment for everyday living and upper extremity splinting are evaluated by the Occupational Therapist.
Speech Therapy – the goals are to improve speech, swallowing to eat safely, and to address cognitive deficiencies.
