 Types of Brain and StrokeTherapies

  • Physical Therapy: We offer advanced treatment techniques and innovative technologies to help neurological patients improve their gait and balance and regain the strength and mobility to function independently.
  • Occupational Therapy: Focus is on returning patients to their daily activities, helping them regain necessary skills for getting dressed, driving and relearning other tasks. Therapists provide patients with new strategies to achieve their personal goals.
  • Speech Therapy: A variety of techniques are used to treat speech disorders, including dysphagia, aphasia, apraxia, dysarthria, voice disorders, cognitive communication deficits and stuttering.
  • Neuropsychology: Cognitive testing is used to assess the psychological effects of neurological disorders and how patients are adjusting to lifestyle changes.
  • Social Services and Support Groups: To assist patients and families we provide social, as well as stroke and caregiver support groups.
  • Specialty Programs: We offer several specialty programs which address the unique needs of patients with neurological conditions. These include a Wheelchair Seating Clinic which occurs at our Upper Arlington Rehabilitation site, our OhioHealth ALS Clinic and OhioHealth Delay the Disease* exercise program for those living with Parkinson's disease.
