After a health setback, you may struggle with the simplest things — from saying hello to waving goodbye. Providence therapy and rehabilitation services help you restore or improve abilities as basic as moving, thinking or speaking. A sports or traumatic injury, stroke, surgery or chronic disease can harm these and other everyday functions.

Our rehabilitation specialists diagnose and address challenges related to a wide variety of conditions, including injured muscles, bones and joints, speech and hearing problems, and life-limiting disabilities such as paralysis or challenges related to brain injury.

Your doctor may advise inpatient or outpatient physical, occupational (daily life activities) or speech therapy.

At Providence Holy Family Hospital, we collaborate with St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute to provide rehabilitative services and therapies to treat the effects of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
