Outpatient Therapy


Sometimes after an injury, illness or surgery, you may find that you are struggling with everyday activities – from communicating and walking to simple household chores and personal hygiene. If you need help recovering, a Mercy therapist can assess your needs and develop a specialized therapy plan to get you back on track.

Expertly trained Mercy therapists will work with you to restore mobility, strength and relieve pain.

  • Physical therapy builds muscle strength, enhances range of motion, and improves mobility, balance and coordination.
  • Occupational therapy develops skills for independent living, such as preparing meals, doing laundry, driving or completing work-related tasks.
  • Speech therapy helps patients who have difficulty communicating due to speech, language, memory or cognition problems. It may also help patients who have difficulty eating or swallowing.

Specialized and related services include:

  • Spinal cord injury rehabilitation
  • Balance/fall prevention training
  • Custom foot orthotics
  • Bladder control and fitness
  • Vertigo/particle repositioning (to address certain forms of dizziness)
  • Driver’s assessment and training
  • VitalStim® to address certain swallowing disorders
  • MS exercise class
