Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy are all part of the acute care rehabilitative services provided to patients admitted to St Petersburg General Hospital. With a focus on restoring function, therapists work with people of all ages to improve function that may have been affected by disease, injury or illness.
In the hospital, therapy may be ordered to help speed recovery and begin the rehabilitative process. Research has shown that early intervention results in fewer complications and shorter hospital stays.
We also provide outpatient modified barium swallow studies as the gold standard for diagnosis of swallowing dysfunction.
The most important member of the rehabilitation team is you, our patient.
We will exceed your expectations!
