When recovering from surgery, injury or illness, a rehabilitation program can help you regain strength and flexibility, relearn skills or find new ways of doing the things you did before. NorthBay Rehabilitation Services provides a wide range of therapies designed to reduce pain, restore function, promote independence and prevent disability.
As part of your rehabilitation program, an individualized treatment plan will be designed to help you hasten your recovery. Our rehabilitation professionals work closely with you throughout the healing process to help you achieve independence and reach your goals as soon as possible. A treatment plan may include the following services:
Physical therapists (PTs) treat a wide variety of injuries and disabilities. They help restore freedom of movement and independence following illness, accident, or surgery. A therapist first evaluates your strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, posture, muscle performance, and/or motor function. Your PT then works with you to develop an individualized program designed to help improve mobility, reduce pain, and increase your fitness level to maximize your independence and performance.
Depending on your injury, disease, or condition, a physical therapy program can help you improve flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and/or balance.
NorthBay physical therapy programs include:
Occupational therapists (OTs) work with individuals to improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and work environments. Using self-care, work and recreational activities, your therapist can help you improve independent function. Your therapist will help you develop, recover or maintain skills that may be impaired due to an illness, accident or surgery. Your OT’s goal is to help you enjoy an independent, productive and satisfying lifestyle.
If illness, injury or disability has affected your ability to perform routine tasks, occupational therapy programs can help you get on with the "occupation" of living.
Hand therapy merges occupational and physical therapies to treat conditions affecting the hands and upper extremities. Certified Hand Therapists evaluate each patient's symptoms and challenges, developing specialized programs of exercise and treatment.
A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) is an occupational therapist or physical therapist who has a minimum of five years of clinical experience, including 4,000 hours or more in direct practice in hand therapy. The Certified Hand Therapist credential offers assurance to the public that the therapist has achieved the highest level of competency in the profession.

Speech and language disorders take many forms. Individuals can be born with these disorders, or injury or illness can cause them at any age. Whatever the kind or cause, speech and language disorders have serious consequences. Speech and language disorders can limit academic achievement, social adjustment and career advancement.
