Accelerated Care Plus (ACP)
ACP’s comprehensive programs assist Physical and Occupational Therapists to treat broader medical conditions by using state-of-the-art advanced therapy techniques. ACP’s treatment interventions allow therapists to use modalities that target certain conditions that may not respond to traditional techniques alone.
ACP’s equipment includes electrical stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, shortwave diathermy, and infrared therapy. It is important to understand that ACP has been used in orthopedic clinics, outpatient clinics, and for professional athletes. ACP is also the preferred treatment of choice for Olympic and Collegiate teams. We look forward to using ACP on our resident’s as we guide them to recovery.
ACP Goals Include:
- Improve outcomes and functional gains for a broader range of patients for more medically complex conditions.
- Introduce new treatment options for residents who have reached a plateau in their progress or have not responded to traditional therapy techniques.
- Manage pain, edema, and range of motion for earlier initiation of therapy and more intensive therapeutic interventions.
- Learn new skill sets associated with progressive therapeutic and treatment interventions.
Physical therapy focuses on identification and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as preventing future injury. Following evaluation, the physical therapist develops an individualized treatment program for each patient.
Areas of focus may include:
- Increasing strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities
- Increasing motor control for stroke patients
- Improving coordination, balance, and walking ability following orthopedic surgery
- Overall strength conditioning, range of motion and endurance following hip or knee replacements
- Teaching pain management
- Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury
- Safety awareness for the resident’s well-being
Our occupational therapists use task-directed activities to treat patients whose functional abilities and independence doing daily activities have been impaired by illness, injury, or aging. Occupational therapy assists our patients in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living.
Our occupational therapists may work with patients who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing, and other daily living activities. They assist our patients with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.
Areas of treatment may include:
- Functional independence: Eating bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking
- Maintaining wellness: Dressing, grooming
- Preventing injury: Home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment
- Increasing safety awareness: Energy conservation techniques, body mechanics
Our speech therapists provide a myriad of services including assessment, education, and treatment for language, voice, articulation, and fluency disorders. Our treatment programs are directed towards improving communication skills and safe swallowing.
We assist in rehabilitating patients who struggle with comprehension, memory, processing, and expression abilities. We also instruct the patient or the caregiver in techniques ranging from head positioning to promoting safe swallowing at a slower rate to clearer speech.We also teach patients how to compensate if they cannot be rehabilitated to their prior level of performance.
- Speech and voice clarity
- Comprehension and verbal expression
- Chewing and swallowing ability
- Cognitive language skills, like memory, problem-solving, and abstract reasoning
- Patient and family/caregiver education and training for managing ongoing difficulties with communication, cognition, and swallowing
