Company description
Physical Therapy helps patients improve strength, flexibility and functional movement while working to reduce pain. Physical therapists provide mobility evaluation and training, and also can instruct patients how to use assistive devices, prosthetics and wheelchairs. Speech Therapy, also referred to as speech pathology, uses special techniques to help patients improve their verbal and non-verbal communication skills, problem-solving abilities, concentration, memory and voice quality. Certified speech therapists/pathologists also can help patients improve their ability to safely eat and drink. Athletic Training works to immediately address athletic injuries and begin treatment as quickly and safely as possible. Athletic trainers are at local sporting events to assess injuries on the playing field.
Additionally, they work with patients at the rehabilitation center to help them overcome their injuries and return to the sports they love. Work Hardening uses individualized exercise programs and work-stimulation activities to help individuals return to work as quickly and safely as possible following work-related injuries. The program includes daily therapy sessions from 8 a.m. to noon, Monday thru Friday. Physician referral and workers’ compensation approval must be obtained before starting the program.
Services include: Work Conditioning, Functional Capacity Evaluation, Workstation Assessment. Fairbanks Memorial Hospital understands the importance of a strong support system.
