WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM OUR SERVICES?
Patients of all ages will highly benefit from the services provided at The Summit Health and Rehab Outpatient Clinic. Patients receive evaluations and therapeutic intervention as needed from a team of specialists. This team approach allows specialists from all disciplines to access and analyze each patient’s individual needs and map out a customized treatment plan.
Physical Therapists are specialists in neuroanatomy, muscular and skeletal systems, and injuries or illnesses that affect these systems. In addition to traditional PT treatment, our physical therapists also provide a hands-on approach to acute and chronic pain management , including manual therapy and use of HIVAMAT and Game Ready (cold compression) machines.
Occupational Therapists provide hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder therapy to patients with injuries, disease, or after surgery. When upper extremity function is lost, so is the ability to earn a living and perform daily tasks at home, school, or work. Restoring function and returning patients to their highest level of function is our goal.
Speech Language Pathologists treat patients of all ages with a variety of communication, swallowing, and cognitive-linguistic problems. Patients with traumatic brain injury, voice problems, stuttering, and cleft palate are often candidates for speech therapy.
“I was in rehab twice in 2015, with Summit Rehab. First, for bilateral knee replacement, as a patient in the inpatient for three weeks and then another four weeks as a patient in the outpatient. I made a remarkable recovery thanks to the therapy I received. Later in the year, I had to have a partial hip replacement. I only felt positive about a full recovery when I was back in the Haven receiving rehab from Summit Rehab. The therapists are all excellent, friendly, capable and very dedicated.”

“I fell down the front steps and hit the cement on my left shoulder sustaining a humeral shaft fracture. After undergoing surgery, a plate and screws were inserted. Occupational therapy was ordered for three times per week. I suffered loss of strength and mobility in my shoulder and had very limited range of motion. Therapy has remedied my symptoms and full range of motion and strength has been restored. I finished therapy four months ahead of schedule due to my therapist’s hard work and due diligence working with me. Because of her example with exercise and nutrition, I now exercise several times a week and pay attention to what I eat.”
