Rehabilitation is an important part of many treatment plans, whether you are suffering from an illness or injury, or recovering from surgery. We offer a range of rehabilitation treatment services in inpatient and outpatient settings. Many of our patients receive a combination of physical, occupational and speech therapy.

The goal of physical therapy is to make moving easier and safer. This could involve walking, going up and down stairs, or getting in and out of bed, a car or chair, or being able to perform an activity without increasing pain. Our physical therapists work with you using a variety of techniques to help you regain safe mobility and function. Aquatic therapy is also available at NHRMC Oleander Rehabilitation.
Our occupational therapists help you do the things you need and want to do. This includes helping children with disabilities interact and gain skills that can help them in school as well as helping adults cope with changes after an illness or injury that limit their physical and cognitive abilities. Occupational therapists use exercises and skills training to help you improve your ability to care for yourself. We’ll help evaluate your abilities, develop a therapy plan and make recommendations for adaptive equipment where needed.
The ability to speak and communicate is an important part of how we interact, but many children and adults have difficulty processing language. Some people can communicate without difficulty but have problems with swallowing. These limitations can be a developmental issue or a condition brought on by a stroke, illness or injury.
Our speech therapists work with you to evaluate your speech, language, voice, and/or swallowing and develop a treatment plan. Often therapy involves strengthening the parts of the mouth and throat involved in producing speech or in the swallowing mechanism. We can also help with conditions that impact memory, problem solving and other cognitive processes.
