Therapy and Rehabilitation

Recovering from sports injuries, joint replacement or other orthopedic issues may be what first comes to mind when you think of therapy and rehabilitation. But it really involves so much more.

While Vidant Health does provide excellent therapy and rehab services related to these common problems, we also offer programs designed to help you get your life back after dealing with other physical injury or disease. Offerings include physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and recreational therapy.

At our locations throughout eastern North Carolina, you’ll find a variety of inpatient and outpatient services that have proven successful for many medical conditions.

Special programs include audiology, aquatic therapy, hand therapy, orthotics and swallowing, vestibular and vocational rehab. We provide therapy and rehab care for children as well, with pediatric programs at several of our hospitals. As needed, we provide counseling, device fitting and adaptive training.

Whatever your diagnosis, our goal is to help you reclaim your independence as soon as possible.

Why Vidant?

  • We offer a true team approach. There is perhaps no program that requires a greater team effort than therapy and rehab. You’ll see a variety of providers, each an expert in a specific aspect of your treatment plan. Your team may include rehabilitation doctors and nurses, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists, speech therapists and more. But the most important player on the team is you. Your involvement is a big part of your success, so we’ll explain everything about your condition and your therapy to you and your family.
  • We keep it interesting and relevant. Your situation is unique, so we’ll take the time to determine which forms of therapy are the most likely to benefit you. Your personalized rehab program may include physical, occupational, speech and/or recreational therapy. Some of our patients benefit from various forms of aquatic therapy or supervised exercise programs.
  • We’re close to home. All of our hospitals provide some level of therapy and rehab. If you need specialized services, you have access to the comprehensive programs at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. That saves time and money and gives you greater peace of mind.
