Lee Health: Rehabilitation – Quality Services With a Personal Touch

Regain your function and quality of life through the patient-focused and goal- oriented teams at Outpatient Rehabilitation Services at Coconut Point.

The center provides a comprehensive array of treatments for conditions ranging from ankle sprains to traumatic injuries. Certified physical, occupational and speech-language therapists treat patients recovering from strokes and other neurological disabilities, joint replacement, spinal conditions, and sports injuries.

“Our full-time therapists receive an extraordinary amount of training and education, significantly more than the industry average,” says Janna Trottier, manager, rehabilitation services. “We’ve also invested in the latest equipment to help patients improve their motor skills, mobility, and independence.”

For example, patients with dizziness or balance issues receive a comprehensive evaluation, including computerized clinical systems originally developed with NASA support. “We use the same system to develop a personalized program of therapy to improve patient’s balance performance,” Janna says. The facility also offers other individualized therapy programs tailored to meet the needs of patients, including those with complex clinical diagnoses.

How can physical therapy help prevent falls?

Health experts say falls are the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma, and the leading cause of injury deaths for older adults. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.

Many conditions, or risk factors, can lead to falls, such as Parkinson’s disease, dehydration, inner ear problems, or vision problems. Our experts can help reduce your risk for falls. For example, if you have balance problems, physical therapy can help determine the type of exercises you should practice to lower your risk of falls and keep you safely on your feet.
