About Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy services are aimed at preventing the onset and/or slowing the progression of conditions resulting from injury, disease and other causes. Our Physical Therapists work with people of all ages who have functional conditions resulting from back and neck injuries, sprains/strains and fractures, arthritis, burns, amputations, stroke, multiple sclerosis, birth defects such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida, injuries related to work and sports and others.
About Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. Occupational therapy gives people the “skills for the job of living” that are needed for independent and satisfying lives. Services typically include:
- Customized treatment programs aimed at improving abilities to carry out the activities of daily living
- Comprehensive evaluation of home and job environments and recommendations on necessary adaptation
- Assessments and treatment for performance skills
- Recommendations and training in the use of adaptive equipment
- Guidance to family members and caregivers.
Our staff was trained by Isernhagen Work Systems. The training included conducting functional capacity evaluations, writing/administering pre-work screens and writing/administering functional job descriptions. These services have been found to decrease workman compensation claims, providing ADA complaint screens, improving return to work criteria and providing a specific description of the worker’s ability. We continue to provide ergonomic evaluations, worksite adaptations, injury prevention education courses and job rotation planning.
About Speech Therapy
Big Stone Therapies offers speech language pathology services to help people of all ages restore, improve, or maintain communication, cognitive, and swallowing disorders. Following a physician’s order, our speech language pathologists evaluate the patient and customize a plan of care that may include a variety of treatments specific to the patient’s needs.
About Massage Therapy
Professional massage therapy is an effective and beneficial part of any complimentary health program. Massage therapy encourages well being by relieving stress and muscle fatigue while affecting the circulatory, lymphatic, nervous and muscular systems. Regular massage allows these systems to function more efficiently and can help relieve chronic health problems. A growing number of medical doctors are referring their patients to professional massage clinics. We offer 1/2 hour and full hour massages.
