Saint Mary’s Outpatient Therapy Center offers a comprehensive range of services. Our mission is to provide you with the best therapy experience available, enabling you to better achieve your therapy goals.

Our team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, rehab aides, a dietician, and a registered nurse. Together they will work with you and your physician to coordinator your therapy plan of care. They can also offer a continuum of care at every phase of treatment: from the beginning of a patient’s treatment in the acute hospital, through their rehab stay, and finally in the outpatient program.

We provide an attractive, low-cost rehabilitation alternative to hospital placement and other expensive medical treatments. Each patient receives an individually tailored, integrated and coordinated rehabilitative program. Our goal is to maximize each person’s ability to function physically, mentally, and vocationally. 

The team at Saint Mary’s Outpatient Therapy Center can evaluate your specific needs to determine whether you are a likely candidate for outpatient rehabilitation therapy. If you or someone you know may benefit from our program, contact Saint Mary’s Outpatient Therapy Center at 479-968-3733.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Physical therapy is a health care specialty for patients who are physically limited due to an accident, illness, handicap, or injury. It is focused on evaluating, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to restore maximal functional independence to each individual patient. To achieve this goal, exercise, heat, cold, massage, and other treatments are utilized.

Physical therapy is provided by physical therapists who are licensed health care professionals with a master’s or doctorate degree in physical therapy. They evaluate, diagnose, and manage the physical therapy treatment plan, customizing it to the patient’s needs.

Physical therapy is useful in treating many different medical disorders. Sport and orthopedic injuries, neurological and muscular illness, as well as cardiopulmonary diseases are only a few conditions which physical therapy plays a treatment role in. Through patient and therapist interaction, physical therapy can help restore movement and function helping patients return to their prior level of independence.

Our licensed physical therapists create a comfortable atmosphere for our patients as they go through the rehabilitative services. You can expect the highest level of therapeutic treatment. For more information or to schedule an appointment with our physical therapist, call 479-968-3733.
