PT, OT, Speech Therapy,
Comprehensive Therapeutic Services in Atoka, OK
Atoka County Medical Center’s Therapy Department functions to help patients return to their most active, and satisfying lifestyle as possible. Our team specializes in restoring function, improving mobility, relieving pain, and preventing/ limiting permanent disability for patients suffering from injury or disease.
Physical therapy services (PT) work to help individuals maintain, restore, and improve movement, activity, and function to obtain optimal performance, health, well-being, and quality of life. Physical therapy is provided for individuals of all ages who have or may develop impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions due to musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and/or integumentary dysfunctions/disease.
Occupational therapy (OT) is all about: Living life to its fullest. Occupational therapists strive to improve our patients’ ability to do the things that are important to them – whether this means basic (yet essential) tasks such as eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, and transfers to a plethora of complex activities that are important to our clients. Whatever you enjoy, drives you, or is important to you, our therapists are here to help you achieve your goals.
Speech-language services work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. The overall objective of speech-language pathology is to optimize an individual’s abilities to communicate and swallow, thereby improving quality of life.
Our patient base is broad. We treat patients across the whole continuum of life, from early intervention/pediatrics to geriatrics. We offer inpatient, swing bed, and outpatient therapy services tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient.
Our patients require post-surgical rehabilitation for a variety of orthopedic surgeries, such as rotator cuff repair and joint arthroplasties (replacements) for shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle. We also provide therapy for neurological conditions, such as CVA (stroke), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and spinal cord injury. We offer spinal rehabilitation services for disorders such as spinal stenosis, bulging discs, and sciatica. Balance and vestibular disorders can be quite devastating and are many times treatable. We offer services to address these disorders, as well.
We are very excited to begin offering Pediatric Therapy. Many children are unable to reach important developmental milestones for a variety of reasons and may struggle reaching their full potential. Our Occupational and Physical therapists are here to help your child reach these important goals. Physical and Occupational Therapy can be beneficial for a very large variety of children. “Success is success no matter the age”
Our rehab professionals work closely with physicians and nurses to ensure the best care for our patients. We want to have your stay at our hospital be brief but would like to see you leave our care as safe and functional as possible. In this setting we assist a variety of patients who have conditions such as debilitating pneumonia, (including post Covid pneumonia) joint replacements, fractures, stroke, and many others.
The swing bed program is a unique benefit of certain critical access hospitals, (CAH) such as Atoka County Medical Center. This program allows you or your loved one to receive rehabilitation services and or skilled nursing services that normally would have to be provided in a nursing home. Because of the variety of services available at our facility we are able to offer equipment and resources that are not always readily available in a nursing home.
