Speech pathologists work to bring communication skills to their highest possible levels when a patient has development delays or is impaired by illness or injury, such as stroke or brain tumor.
Occupational therapists assist patients who need physical retraining of fine motor skills, developmental training, behavioral modification, custom splinting, adaptive equipment or work conditioning to achieve therapeutic goals. Our outpatient clinic in Clinton also has a certified hand therapist, (CHT), who specializes in assessing and treating the upper extremity.
Rehabilitation services now offers aquatic therapy to help speed patient recovery. Water provides a supportive environment that allows a patient to begin therapy sooner than traditional therapy. When used in conjunction with land-based therapy, aquatic therapy can rapidly increase recovery time. The water allows for low-impact rehabilitation as well as progressive weight-bearing and resistance activities. Many patients with orthopedic or neurological conditions, or chronic pain may benefit from this type of therapy.
Golden Valley Memorial Hospital is committed to providing employers and employees with a safe work environment and the ability to hire people with the strength to perform their job safely. In order to confirm an employee's physical ability to perform requirements of their job, Golden Valley Memorial Hospital offers the Physical Capacity Profile (PCP) testing system.
