Rehabilitation and Therapy

The experienced therapy team affiliated with ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital can help you transition from the bench back to your regular active life. Our staff works closely with patients who are coping with or recuperating from a physical challenge or injury. Through recurrent and closely monitored therapy sessions, patients regain movement, manage their pain more effectively, rebuild their confidence and overcome physical challenges.

We provide the following therapy services.

Aquatic Therapy – Aquatic therapy helps patients to manage their pain with increased range of motion, reduced chance of re-injury, rapid return to normal activity and a safer, more efficient workout.

Occupational Therapy (OT) – OT assists people with permanent and temporary disabilities to gain independence and achieve a better quality of life. OT supports patients to restore or improve physical abilities, promote behavioral changes, adapt to their surroundings and learn new skills.

Pediatric Rehabilitation – Defiance Regional Hospital offers specialized therapy for even our youngest patients in a new dedicated pediatric rehab unit. Therapy services are provided for children from birth through age 21 to minimize disability and maximize independence. Defiance Regional Hospital therapists facilitate motor, sensory and communication skills, teach families home programs, and assist with adaptive equipment needs.

Physical Therapy (PT) – PT promotes healing and injury prevention by helping patients minimize pain and discomfort, regain movement and rebuild their confidence and motivation toward recovery.

Speech Therapy – Defiance Regional Hospital’s certified speech and language pathologist assists children and adults who are dealing with speech delays or stuttering to communicate more effectively. Patients recovering from a stroke or who have suffered a head injury also benefit from working with the speech therapist. Others who would find speech therapy advantageous include patients with muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease and autism.
