Cressman Parkinson’s Center Rehabilitation Services
Through a collaborative effort with physicians and other health care professionals, we seek to provide optimal rehabilitation therapy in support of people with movement disorders and their caregivers. We are committed to goals-oriented, innovative and evidence-based care based on appropriate clinical interventions and research. We aim to educate, advocate, empower and improve the quality of life of our patients, their families, caregivers and our community.
Our goal is for our patients to improve and understand their function.
The rehabilitation program at the Cressman Center at Norton Brownsboro Hospital specializes in movement disorders, which include Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia, and provides a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, including physical therapy, speech-language pathology and occupational therapy. The rehabilitation team also provides patients with consistent follow-up over time.
Therapy can assist in a patient’s awareness of what may be changing due to a specific diagnosis and improve their ability to move and communicate. Our patients can see an improvement in their quality of life, overall safety and communication.
We believe all patients diagnosed with a movement disorder should see a rehabilitation team that includes physical therapy, speech-language pathology and occupational therapy to assist with monitoring physical function and promoting overall healthy living and safety.
The rehab center also provides a fitness program for after therapy exercise facilitated by trained rehab professionals. For a nominal fee you will receive eight 1:1 sessions with an activity based technician each month to continue to work towards your exercise and functional goals.
We never want our patients to feel that they are done with therapy upon discharge. We want our patients and their families to feel fully supported throughout their journey with any movement disorder. All patients as well as their family members can benefit from the education provided to better live their lives with their diagnosis. Learn more
