Physical therapists and occupational therapists at the Acute Rehabilitation Hospital at St. Luke's Medical Center work with patients who have experienced a life-changing trauma, such as surgery or stroke, and are looking to regain their independence. Our 16-bed, state-of-the-art facility offers inpatient care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, we offer extensive outpatient services at our physical therapy center. We also offer speech and language therapy and aquatic therapy on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Physical therapists work with patients who suffer from orthopedic, neurological or other conditions. Employees with physical therapy jobs use a variety of techniques, approaches and equipment to help patients relieve pain, improve mobility, restore impaired functions, and prevent permanent physical disabilities.
Occupational therapists work one-on-one with patients who need help learning or relearning the physical and cognitive skills necessary to perform the tasks of daily life. Those with occupational therapy jobs use a number of therapeutic services to help patients maximize their skills and abilities and lead a more independent life.
