REHABILITATION

Rehabilitation – inpatient and outpatient services

Need rehabilitation for a current or chronic injury? Our experienced rehabilitation team is committed to providing outstanding results and excellent quality of care. Parkview is licensed to do both inpatient and outpatient therapy and has one of only two AlterG treadmills in the Cedar Valley. Our staff has experience with infants through seniors and our physical therapist has a Masters in Manual Therapy along with her required degree. Those receiving therapies are empowered through individualized programs to reach goals of increased independence and ability. 

Physical Therapy
Our physical therapy team works toward specific goals of achieving the resident’s highest functional level of independence. Physical therapy focuses on identification and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as future injury prevention. Following evaluation, our experienced physical therapists develop an individualized treatment program. The goal is to achieve safety in a variety of areas.

Areas of treatment focus may include:
  • Increase strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities 
  • Increase motor control for a resident who has suffered a stroke 
  • Improve coordination, balance and the ability to walk following a fracture 
  • Improve overall strength conditioning, range of motion and endurance 
  • Pain management 
  • Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury 
  • Promoting safety awareness for the well-being of the resident 

Occupational Therapy
Our professional occupational therapists use task-directed activities in the treatment of our residents whose functional abilities, daily activities and independence have been impaired by illness, injury or aging. Occupational therapy assists our residents in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. 

Our occupational therapists may work with residents who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. They assist residents with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.

Areas of treatment may include:
  • Functional independence: eating, bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking, etc.
  • Maintenance of wellness: dressing and grooming
  • Prevention of further disability: home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment
  • Increasing safety awareness

Treatment programs are designed to help residents affected by stroke, brain injury, dementia, and other neurological disorders. Our professionals also work with residents suffering from hearing impairment, respiratory illnesses, and complex medical conditions.

    Areas of treatment focus may include:
    • Improving speech and voice clarity 
    • Increasing comprehension and verbal expression 
    • Improving chewing and swallowing ability
