A full range of outpatient rehabilitation services
Whether you are living with chronic pain or are recuperating after an injury
or surgical procedure, Lehigh Regional Medical Center’s rehabilitation
specialists provide a full range of services to help you regain independence
and achieve your recovery goals. Every individual is different, so our
rehabilitation specialists provide a customized recovery plan that addresses
the unique needs and abilities of each patient.
Physical therapy – Physical therapists provide a customized plan to help build strength
and endurance, and assist with improving balance and mobility. They provide
education, various therapies, exercise supervision and offer support and
motivation throughout the recovery process.
Occupational therapy – Occupational therapists help patients regain strength and endurance
to perform daily activities such as bathing, dressing and personal hygiene,
as well as home-management skills such as preparing meals, doing laundry
and other household chores.
Speech therapy – Speech and language therapists assist with everything from swallowing
difficulties to memory deficits, voice dysfunction and language barriers.
If full recovery is not possible, therapists help patients and family
members learn compensatory techniques to allow the highest level of functioning possible.
Pain management – Our pain management doctors can provide a range of options to
help alleviate pain.
Additional therapeutic services – Our multidisciplinary team of dietitians, psychologists, social
workers and case managers can deliver a full range of services to meet
