Rehabilitation to Restore Mobility and Stability For Better Quality of Life
Oak Medicals PM&R specialists seek to restore patients’ ability to do daily activities and tasks with less pain. Our dedicated rehabilitation specialists address limitations to patients’ overall function. Collaborating with physical, occupational and speech therapists, our team will discuss limitations in treatment to develop an individualized plan of care.
They address a wide range of disabilities from complex conditions to singular causes of pain or limited movement. They may prescribe treatments such as joint injections and orthotics.
Each patient’s treatment plan is very specific, customized to their lifestyle and unique challenges. In every case, Oak Medical providers are dedicated to helping patients achieve as much functional independence as possible. They troubleshoot obstacles and problem solve with patients and family members to find the best way to support improved quality of life.
