The Patient Rehabilitation Center at Mission Regional Medical Center is
here to help each patient regain many different types of functions from
improved speech to walking and running to being able to dress themselves.
The type of therapy and goals may be different for different people. An
older person who has had a stroke may simply want rehabilitation to be
able to dress or bathe without help. Following an injury an athlete may
go through physical rehabilitation to try to return to their former condition.
And those who have been in an accident may need help correctly using an
area of the body that may have been hurt. There are several types of patient
rehabilitation services available at Mission Regional Medical Center including:
Our full service physical therapy clinic works with patients to improve
physical conditions following an accident, disease or other incident that
changed how the patient's body functions. They work with the patient
to restore physical mobility and to decrease any pain the patient may
be experiencing. Some of the types of patients we work with include those
with neck or back pain, accident survivors, athletes, amputees and post
Our speech therapist can help patients with either regaining speech functions
after a stroke or accident that affected the area of the brain that controls
speech. And they can help those who may have had a condition since birth
(congenital condition) that affects the patient's ability to speak
correctly such as a cleft palate, stuttering or even cerebral palsy.
Occupational therapy helps people of any age participate in the things
they want and need to do through the improved use of everyday activities.
Common occupational therapy activities include helping people recover
from injuries to regain skills that are needed for everyday living. This
could include those who are accident survivors, those injured at work,
stroke patients, etc.
