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

Physical therapists provide 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. Our therapists provide free athletic injury screens for 7th-12th grade student athletes.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists provide evaluation, treatment, and prevention 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 and work toward maximum function and independence at home, work, or school.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapists provide evaluation, treatment, and prevention of problems with cognitive-communication, speech production, language understanding and formation, feeding and swallowing, and social communication. Speech therapy optimizes the patient’s ability to communicate and swallow by establishing a new skill or restoring an impaired skill to improve a patient’s functional outcomes and quality of life.

Athletic Training Services

An athletic trainer is contracted to Wayne Community Schools to provide coverage for sporting events, injury screens and assist with safety and prevention of injuries for junior high and high school athletes.
