Physical Therapy:  Physical therapy focuses on regaining strength,balance, and functional mobility lost due to injury.  Whether it’s walking, running, or playing basketball that’s your goal, we’ll help you achieve it.  

Occupational Therapy:  Occupational therapy provides therapeutic intervention to address deficits related to self-care, daily activities and job performance.  Outpatient therapy also provides specialized treatment of the upper extremity, hand therapy, and splinting. 

DriveWise:  We offer a driving evaluation and treatment program to assist restoring the ability to drive to those individuals who may not qualify to return to driving at this time. 

Speech Therapy: Speech Therapy focuses on treatment of various communication disorders including speech, language comprehension, voice, reading, writing, and cognitive skills.  We also conduct swallowing evaluation and treatment interventions.  

Continence Control:
Menorah Park’s Continence physical therapy program provides a non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence. These physical therapy interventions, including muscle re-education and bladder retraining effectively reduce urinary incontinence without significant side effects. Private, one-to-one physical therapy sessions with specially trained therapists may also include:

  • An internal exam to allow the therapist to grade the strength and endurance of the pelvic floor muscles. The results of the evaluation help the therapist design a specific treatment plan.
  • Education about bowel and bladder health and lifestyle choices that promote continence.
  • Specific exercises to increase strength and endurance.
  • Biofeedback, muscle stimulation, and bladder retraining, along with deep breathing and relaxation exercises.

Hand Therapy:
Menorah Park’s Hand Therapy Clinic specializes in the treatment of complex traumatic injuries and post-surgical procedures, as well as more common problems involving the upper extremity.  Therapy is provided with the expertise of a Certified Hand Therapist who provides specific treatments that include surgical repair of tendons and nerves, fractures, amputations and burns. She also provides treatment for conditions such as tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Treatment may involve custom splint fabrication for prevention or correction of an injury, management of acute or chronic pain, training in use of adaptive equipment, and exercise programs to increase motion, dexterity and strength.

Osteoporosis Help:
Menorah Park’s physical therapist who specializes in treatment of osteoporosis takes an individualized approach by understanding the cause of your osteoporosis, your physical fitness level, your risk level for spinal fractures, and what your body can handle. Generally, though, the physical therapist will work with you to develop an exercise plan that involves weight-bearing exercises (such as walking) and strengthening exercises (such as weight lifting). She may also work on your balance and posture. Improved balance will help you prevent falls. Posture is important throughout your life and is especially important if you have or could have osteoporosis. Poor posture can mean that your upper back is more rounded than it should be. A rounded back puts more pressure on your spine, increasing your risk of spinal fractures.

Your physical therapist may also teach you new ways to safely handle your daily activities, such as getting in and out of bed or a chair. With weakened bones, those activities—ones you once found simple—can be challenging, and if you fall, you could fracture a bone.
