Therapy & Rehabilitation Services
Henderson Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy & More
Methodist Hospital Therapy Services offers a comprehensive Outpatient Program
to assist patients in their recovery after illness, injury or a catastrophic
event. We offer specialized services in Physical Therapy, Occupational
Therapy, and Speech Therapy. Our services are tailored to the specific
needs of each patient for maximum recovery.
Physical Therapy – If you have recently suffered an injury or undergone extensive surgery,
you may need physical therapy to help recover. Physical therapy involves
working with a trained physical therapist on exercises that will help
your body regain mobility and reduce pain.
Occupational Therapy – Patients who suffer from impairment or disability, whether permanent or
temporary, are often referred to occupational therapists. Occupational
therapy is aimed at helping you regain independence by accomplishing day-to-day
tasks despite your impairment.
Speech Therapy – Speech disorders can be the result of stuttering, lisping, stroke, brain
damage, and several other conditions. Speech therapists help patients
overcome their condition and better communicate. People who have difficulty
understanding speech may also benefit from speech therapy.
Our Therapy Services Department is proud to have Dr. Judith Canlas as its
Medical Director. Dr. Canlas is a physiatrist who treats medical conditions
that cause pain or limit function. The goal of Dr. Canlas and the professional
staff of therapists is to restore maximum health and quality of life for
the patient without surgery. If surgery is absolutely necessary, Dr. Canlas
and the staff work to develop comprehensive and effective treatment and
Our professional staff of therapists collaborate as a team to develop an
individualized treatment plan for each patient.
Other Rehabilitation Programs
Maintaining independence and self-sufficiency are concerns for everyone,
as we age. Problems with dizziness or balance are often incorrectly dismissed
as just a part of growing older. Physical Therapists can help reduce risk
and help prevent falls. If you are having problems with your balance for
any reason, you should talk to your doctor about it. The physician can
refer you to professionals who are trained to address these issues.
Are you at risk?
- Have you had a fall, or near fall in the past year?
- Do you have poor endurance?
- Do you ever feel dizzy or lightheaded?
- Do you have poor vision?
- Do you take more than 4 medications?
- Do you have decreased sensation in your feel?
- Do you have muscle weakness?
- Do you have problems with your blood pressure?
- Do you need a walker or cane to get around safely?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may be at risk for a
fall. We have a team of trained professionals ready to evaluate, identify,
and treat conditions which may contribute to falls and related problems.
It is important to have this condition treated before an injury occurs.
LVST BIG & Loud
LSVT LOUD is an evidence-based treatment approach that focuses on a single
goal of “speaking LOUD.” This therapy stimulates the larynx
muscles and speech mechanism through a systematic hierarchy of exercises.
LSVT helps patients establish an improved, healthy vocal loudness without
excessively straining their throat. The therapy is particularly useful
to Individuals in all stages of Parkinson’s disease (PD) as well
as sub-types of PD.
Improvements from LVST include:
- Faster walking with bigger steps
- Improved balance
- Increased trunk rotation
- Improved Speech volume
- Improve speech clarity and intonation
- Improved swallowing
- Improved facial expression
