|Therapy is often prescribed to help people recover from surgery, strengthen after a fall or accident, regain balence or retrain muscles following a stroke, and prevent further damage.
Therapy has a big role in preventing health issues as well. Preventive therapies can help you avoid problems, and sometimes are prescribed as the result of risk assessments. Knee and hip replacements often result in extended physical therapy.
Rehabilitation or rehab therapy often takes the form of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language therapy and mental health therapy. Some therapies might be palliative, to help people become more comfortable dealing with the restrictions of their health issue.
Most therapists in Maine are licensed, and covered by insurance if the therapy is prescribed by your physician.
