We are very innovative in our therapies; we believe that integrating therapy in the everyday livelihood of our patients can be a huge factor in their quality of life. Therapy can assist with: pain reduction, mental and physical coordination, social involvement, and most importantly, independence.
Additionally, we have therapists who provide specialized assistance geared towards Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's, and other memory mobility diagnosis.
Speech therapy is often used when recovering from consequences of dementia, stroke, or head trauma. A speech-language pathologist uses specialized techniques to target language, cognition, speech, and difficulty swallowing.
Physical therapy uses physical activity, exercise, and additional treatments such as massage to aid in strengthening, healing, and relieving pain after an injury, illness, or operation. Meridian's physical therapists assess and provide treatment to help patients of all ages increase mobility, strength, balance, and coordination. Therapists also work with family and community resources to maximize the patient's rehabilitation process.
Occupational therapy is a rehabilitative service for people with mental, physical, developmental, or emotional impairments that restores or maintains their ability to perform tasks used in daily living, often through developing ways to modify or adapt activities. Meridian's occupational therapists assess and treat patients in order to increase their self-help and homemaking skills.
Complementary therapy is used in conjunction with other treatments or therapy, and includes non-aggressive measures to provide a more holistic approach to your overall well-being. We provide music therapy, pet therapy, massage therapy, and aromatherapy, among others.
