Pre/Post-operative Rehabilitation             

Therapy prior (pre-operative rehabilitation) to orthopaedic surgical procedures has been found to improve outcomes after surgery (post-operative). Therapy may include exercises to strengthen weakened muscles and improve reduced joint range of motion, as well as prepare patients for what to expect with surgery and immediately following surgery. Post-operative therapy is a crucial part of the healing process. It is important to decrease pain and safely restore joint movements, strength, and flexibility early in the healing phase. 

Sports Physical Therapy

In an effort to meet your specific goals, our team will work with you to develop a sport specific, individualized treatment program to care for a sprain/strains, muscle imbalance, post-surgical need, or injury prevention. We will collaborate with other healthcare team members including your physician and/or athletic trainer to deliver optimal results. We use nationally certified and proven outcome measures and physical performance tests to ensure safe return to play. Our goal is to get you back to your activities safely, competing at the highest level, as soon as possible. To schedule an appointment call, 1-877-541-1417.

Spinal Decompression Traction             

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical technique that involves the use of manual or mechanical forces to alleviate pressure on the spine or the nerves in the spine. This is proven to be an effective intervention that slowly and gradually stretches the spine to decrease neck, back, or extremity pain, as well as improve joint motion and function. Decompression therapy is most beneficial when used in conjunction with an appropriate, individualized exercise program. We currently offer spinal manual decompression techniques at all of our outpatient facilities. Mechanical traction if available at our Lewisburg, Plaza 15 clinic. To schedule an appointment call, 1-877-541-1417.

Lymphedema is an accumulation of fluid which can occur in your legs, arms, face, or trunk. It is caused by a backup or disruption of the lymphatic circulatory system. This system is responsible for transporting over a gallon of lymph fluid a day. It is a one-way system which transports the fluid from our extremities back to the chest cavity where it dumps into our blood stream. The lymphatic system is composed of approximately 500-600 lymph nodes and a complex system of lymph vessels which transport the fluid. It is a very important part of our bodies ability to fight infection. This system is often damaged by cancer which has spread, and the treatment of various cancers including but not limited to breast, pelvic, genital, and head/neck cancers. There are also other disease processes which can result in a congestion of the lymphatic system. 

Therapists, who are certified in the treatment of lymphedema (CLTs) use a technique called complete decongestive therapy to manage lymphedema symptoms. This includes five components of care designed to empower the patient with tools to manage their lymphedema symptoms. Although lymphedema is considered a non-curable condition, if caught early it can be managed quite successfully with treatment provided by a CLT. 

Pelvic Health             

Pelvic floor dysfunction refers to a wide range of problems that occur when the muscles of the pelvic floor are not performing optimally. These problems can affect women at any age. There are often related impairments of the mid and low back, abdominal muscles, sacroiliac joints, coccyx, and hip joints with pelvic floor dysfunction.

Common conditions include:

  • Urinary frequency/urgency,
  • Urinary incontinence,
  • Difficulty emptying bladder,
  • Pelvic floor prolapse,
  • Diastasis recti,
  • Painful intercourse,
  • Pelvic pain (coccyx pain, bladder pain, abdominal pain, vaginal pain or pubic pain)

Cancer Rehabilitation             

Patients who are receiving care for a cancer diagnosis often experience side effects which can result in: weakness, swelling, neuropathy, decreased endurance, stiffness or loss of joint motion, issues with cognitive status, and problems swallowing. Cancer rehabilitation involves a team approach of therapist working together with your medical team to improve these deficits. Participating in a cancer rehabilitation program can help patients to recover quicker and achieve a higher level of function. Many national and international cancer care organizations recommend rehabilitation as an important component of the patient's overall cancer plan. 

Concussion Rehabilitation             

Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by the impact to the head, neck or body resulting in a jarring of the brain within the skull. Concussions are a common result of sports injury, motor vehicle accidents or falls. Common symptoms include: headaches, difficulty with concentration, fatigue, dizziness, decreased balance, eye strain, mood changes, neck pain, and sensitivity to light and/or noise. Often these symptoms resolve in 7-10 days. Evangelical’s concussion specialists recommend post-concussion rehabilitation if your symptoms persist for more than 14 days.

Post-concussion rehabilitation can include physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy as determined by your needs. These therapists have specific training in post-concussion management. The therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation using the latest technologies to design an individualized treatment program aimed at minimizing symptoms and assisting in the individual’s safe return to activity.

Evangelical’s Concussion Program’s goal is to bring awareness to athletes, parents, doctors, and schools of Evangelical’s Concussion Program. Evangelical’s Physical Therapy department at The Miller Center also offers baseline screening for athletes 12 and older using SCAT3 (a cognitive assessment tool) and our Neurocom system (objective tool used in balance assessment). Evangelical keeps a record of baseline data and can provide this information to the physician. Baseline testing is recommended prior to an athlete starting any impact sport. This allows the individual and physician to make better decisions regarding returning to play. If a concussion occurs within 1 year of completing a baseline exam, the athlete may be retested free of charge to provide comparative data to the athlete's physician so that the physician can make a better determination regarding a safe return to play.

Speech Therapy

Stroke Rehabilitation            

Our speech therapists specialize in the treatment of adults who have difficulty communicating, speaking, eating, or swallowing. Our speech therapists assess, diagnose, and establish individualized treatment plan for a variety of speech, language, communicative, and cognitive impairments. Diagnoses may include stroke, fluency and voice disorders, aphasia, apraxia, dysphagia, dysarthria, and progressive neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and dementia. 

In addition, we offer specialty exams such as modified barium swallow for dysphagia and videostroboscopy for evaluation of vocal cords and voice quality.

Common Diagnoses:

  • Aphasia: People with aphasia have difficulty in language including comprehension, reading, writing, and speaking. The condition can develop when areas of the brain that process language are damaged by stroke, injury, or another primary cause (Progressive Primary Aphasia). Our therapists will assess, educate, and provide an individualized treatment for identified areas of concern. They will also assess for the need of alternative communication, including speech generating device.
  • Apraxia: Motor Speech disorder resulting in inability to control muscles used to formulate words.
  • Cognitive-Communication Disorders: When the area of the brain that controls your thinking ability is damaged, it can result in difficulty communicating. This could lead to difficulty with attention, memory, problem solving, reasoning, planning, organization, and safety.
  • Dysarthria: Difficulty with speech as a result of weakness in the muscles that control speech.  This could cause slow or slurred speech. This is often a result of a diagnosis such as a stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or other nervous system disorders.
  • Dysphagia: Difficulty swallowing caused by stroke, brain injury, neurologic conditions, or head and neck cancers. Our speech therapists will complete a thorough assessment, make diet recommendations and/or treat with various exercises or compensatory techniques. 
  • Voice and Fluency Disorders: Voice disorders as a result of changes to the vocal cords such as inflammation, nodules, or impaired function. Patients will receive a referral from ENT/Otolaryngology, to our speech-language pathologist. A videostroboscopy can be done to view the vocal cords and surrounding structures to better diagnose and treat vocal issues.
  • Fluency Disorders: Disruption to the flow, speed, and rhythm of speech. Stuttering is a fluency disorder.
Parkinson’s Rehabilitation             

Patients may present with speech and voice disorders including soft, monotone, breathy, and hoarse quality voice. Articulation and communication may impact one’s quality of life.
