Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

OakBend Medical Center provides inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services. Together we provide a community centered healthcare organization with experienced and compassionate therapists who deliver exceptional quality care to our patients.

We are invested in the community and want our care to leave a lasting impact on the patients we treat.

Physical and Occupational Therapy Services are offered seven days a week. We provide a one therapist to patient ratio to ensure the utmost care and attention. Our therapists have an excellent rapport with the physicians, case managers and nursing staff. These relationships allow our team to deliver exceptional care.

  • Amputees
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • General Deconditioning
  • Medical and Orthopedic Surgeries
  • Respiratory Illness

Outpatient Services:

It is our belief that quality patient care centers on a partnership between the physician, therapist and patient. This partnership is instrumental in returning the patient to the highest functional level possible and therefore reducing the risk for re-injury. Our Board Certified Physical and Occupational Therapists believe that providing hands – on, individualized, and goal oriented treatments produce positive results.

Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Therapy:

Our approach to managing joint and soft tissue injuries focuses on the restoration of flexibility, strength, mobility, and endurance to allow for the patient’s safe return to the highest functional level possible. We provide sport specific programs, customized to the individual’s athletic needs.

Vestibular Therapy:

Vestibular therapy is a specialized area of physical therapy that focuses on the treatment of the inner ear system that provides balance. There are many disorders of the inner ear that can cause dizziness, a feeling of being off balance, or unsteadiness. The treatment program is customized to meet individual needs and address symptoms. Most inner ear conditions are treatable with Physical Therapy; this will in turn improve overall quality of life.

Occupational Therapy:

Occupational therapy programs focus on improving fine motor skills of the hand and arm, allowing for improved ability to complete activities of daily living. Our therapist’s first priority is to foster the greatest activity level possible, and encourage the patient to utilize the affected extremity as soon as possible. This facilitates an increase in the patient’s independence level.
Occupation Therapy Interventions Include:

  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Orthosis/Splint Fabrication(Fitting and Training)
  • Pain Management
  • Functional Activity/Activities of Daily Living Training
  • Scar Management
  • Mirror Therapy


Hand Therapy:

Certified Hand Therapists specialize in the treatment of patients whose upper extremity has been affected by an injury, accident or trauma. As a result this leaves them with wounds, scars, burns, injured tendons/nerves, fractures, or an amputation which affects the ability to perform activities of daily living. Our therapists will provide the patient with the most comprehensive care possible allowing return to the highest functional level possible.
Common Hand Conditions Treated Include, But Are Not Limited To:

  • Amputations
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Dupytren’s Disease
  • Fractures
  • Joint Replacements
  • Nerve Repair
  • Tendon Repair
  • Trigger Finger

A few of our Occupational Therapists give great tips on stretching exercises you can do if you suffer from carpal tunnel or another nerve disease affecting the hand.

Work Conditioning and Work Hardening Programs:

Work Conditioning and Work Hardening Programs are designed for patients who were injured on the job and are in need of specialized return to work rehabilitation.  A patient is a Work Hardening candidate if they have a targeted job to return to and are demonstrating behavioral and/or vocational barriers to return to work in addition to their physical and functional limitations. A patient is a candidate for a Work Conditioning Program if they are not demonstrating vocational or behavioral barriers to return to work. These patients may or may not have a targeted job to return to.

Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE):

A FCE is an evaluation individualized to the job-specific physical demands of each injured worker. This evaluation will assist the therapist in determining baseline physical and functional abilities and limitations in establishing an individualized work hardening/conditioning program.
When Ruben Flores got injured on the job working as an EMT/Firefighter, he thought he’d never go back to the way things were. With the help of OakBend Medical Center’s Industrial Rehabilitation Program, he’s now back keeping our community safe.



Hear From Patients:

“When I was discharged, I was assigned to OakBend outpatient physical therapy and I met the most wonderful staff. When I came to OakBend I could not walk, talk, or write so they had a lot of work to do. My first physical therapist was Lisa and she was positively awesome. I was willing to do whatever she asked me to do. She started off slow but she increased it as it went on. I would not be walking, talking, or able to write a little bit if it had not been for the staff, therapists, and their assistants here because they were totally awesome.” – Linda T.
“I improved greatly during my time in therapy. At the end of my scheduled therapy, they suggested I do Lifestyles to keep on improving. The friendliness of the people starts the moment you walk in the door. They always told you that you were doing a good job and improving, so it was wonderful to be there.” – Ruth V.
