Our aquatic pool is specially designed for therapeutic purposes. Our 18 ft. x 24 ft. pool is heated between 92-96 degrees — enabling the water’s buoyancy to reduce the stress on joints and ease discomfort during exercise. This helps you realize improved physical function, muscle tone, balance and cardiovascular performance. The pool also features a flat floor divided into depths of 3 ft., 4 ft. and 5 ft., so patients of varying heights can exercise comfortably. It also has a hydraulic lift to provide easy access to individuals of all abilities.
Following a thorough evaluation, our therapists work with you on a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan that may include a variety of occupational, physical, speech, cognitive, neuropsychological and other therapies. You’ll receive the utmost respect and care on your journey to regaining as much language, memory, problem solving, cognitive functions and physical mobility as possible.
At Salt Lake Regional, our physical therapy team has extensive experience working with patients recovering from a wide variety of orthopedic injuries and surgeries. Collaborating closely with your orthopedic physician or surgeon, we use the latest treatment techniques to reduce pain, facilitate a smooth recovery and enable you to get back on track as quickly as possible.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
At Salt Lake Regional, our specially trained physical therapists effectively treat pelvic floor disorders, restore proper organ function and enhance your quality of life. This is performed through therapeutic manipulation of pelvic tissues, muscles, ligaments and joints. Physical therapy helps to increase strength, improve range of motion, release tension and relieve pain.
Playing sports or engaging in any physical activity involves a certain amount of risk. The more physically challenging the game, sport or activity, the higher the risk of injuries. At Salt Lake Regional, we think preventing an injury is better than having to recover from one. That’s why we provide educational services focused on injury prevention for your specific sport.
Depending upon your needs, we may utilize our unique aquatic environment and/or gym to help you reach your desired goal. Whether you are dealing with a chronic illness or a recent injury, we can help you recover lost function, decrease your fall risk and improve your quality of life.
Physical and cognitive abilities required for daily living — including eating, bathing and dressing. Our therapists can assist you in developing, improving, sustaining or restoring independence if you have experienced an injury, illness or disability. This is especially valuable if you are recovering from a stroke, brain injury or orthopedic surgery.
Speech therapy can help you improve your ability to produce and understand language — including speaking, listening, reading, writing, organizing and solving problems. Speech therapy is especially helpful if your abilities are impaired due to a stroke, head injury or other type of neurological disease. In addition, speech therapy is helpful if you suffer from speech impediments (such as stuttering), hearing loss, mental disabilities or a medical condition (such as cerebral palsy).
VitalStim® Therapy System for Swallowing Disorders
When combined with swallowing exercises, the VitalStim® Therapy System is a safe and effective treatment option that is designed to help you overcome swallowing disorders (dysphagia) or difficulties by accelerating strengthening, restoring function and helping your brain remap the swallow. VitalStim uses electrical stimulation to increase strength and coordination of the swallowing muscles.
