Rehabilitation Therapy

A Plan To Getting Back to Life

Rehabilitation therapy is used to assess and intervene to develop, recover, or maintain the meaningful activities, or occupations, of patients.


Providence Medical Center Therapy services consists of Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists with years of experience providing comprehensive, quality outpatient care. Our highly-skilled therapists are committed to a successful recovery. We are focused on maximizing outcomes while streamlining the unique course of treatment for each patient.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists provide medical support through evaluation, treatment, and prevention of a wide variety of movement and function problems. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants work with individuals to improve movement potential, decrease pain, and achieve individual therapy goals for optimal health.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists provide hands-on care and teaching to improve a person’s ability to participate in the activities of daily life. Occupational therapists adapt tasks and the environment to maximize independence and quality of life. Occupational therapists are part of a comprehensive health care team working towards maximum function and independence at home, work, or school.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy focuses on cognitive-communication, speech production, language understanding and formation, feeding and swallowing, and social communication. Speech therapy services are designed to optimize the patient’s ability to communicate and swallow, thereby improving quality of life. Therapy establishes a new skill or restores an impaired skill or ability. The ultimate goal is to improve a patient’s functional outcomes.

Athletic Training Services

Providence Medical Center provides athletic training injury screens for athletic injuries at the Wayne schools. We also provide athletic training coverage for sporting events at the Wayne schools. Our therapists provide free athletic injury screens for 7th-12th grade student athletes at the Providence Therapy Clinics in Wayne and Laurel.
