Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is one of the allied health professions. It is provided by physical therapists (PT) and physical therapy assistants (PTA) who optimize movement to improve the human experience. These professionals promote, maintain, and restore health through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, patient education, physical intervention, rehabilitation, disease prevention, and health promotion.

Here at Whitfield Regional Hospital's Therapy + Sports Medicine, our Physical Therapy team develops a plan to meet your individualized movement needs and assists you in meeting your rehabilitative goals.

Occupational Therapy

As an inclusive profession, Occupational Therapy maximizes health, well-being, and quality of life for all people, populations, and communities through effective solutions that facilitate participation in everyday living. -AOTA Vision 2025

Occupational therapists (OT) and occupational therapy assistants (OTA) utilize assessments and interventions to help you recover from injury or accident to restore you to your prior level of function and help you reach your full potential.

Our Occupational Therapy team treats a multitude of diagnoses in patients of all ages-pediatrics to geriatrics. We treat each patient holistically and develop a plan to meet your individualized needs.

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy services are provided by speech-language pathologists (SLP). These professionals engage in professional practice in the area of communication and swallowing across the lifespan. Communication includes speech production and fluency, language, cognition, voice, resonance, and hearing. Swallowing includes all aspects of swallowing, including feeding behaviors.

Our Speech Therapists play a critical role in health literacy; screening, diagnosis, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders; and use the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health to develop functional goals and collaborative practice.
