Specialized Treatment Programs
We offer several treatment programs that address individualized life issues such as work injuries, speech therapy, pediatric rehabilitation and long-term health maintenance.
Speech therapists specialize in treating swallowing and communication disorders.
Infants, toddlers and children of all ages sometimes require special care and attention. Our team of physical therapists can treat children with orthopaedic and neurological injuries.
Problems with the inner ear can trigger debiliating dizziness. Often, these problems can be fixed or improved with vestibular rehabilitation. One of the most common causes of dizziness in adults is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, simply known as BPPV. This condition is caused by debris or “ear rocks” that have become displaced and collect in the canals of the inner ear.
Treatment for BPPV is available at the HealthPlex. It includes moving the patient’s head in a series of movements to reposition the displaced ear rocks to their rightful positions. Normally, this condition can be corrected in two treatments or less by a trained therapist.
Work Injury Rehabilitation
Workplace reconditioning, functional capacity evaulation, ergonomics training and consultation help patients regain and maintain the skills necessary to keep them productive in the workplace.
Long-Term Health Maintenance
After completing your therapy, Union Hospital invites you to continue your self-directed exercise program at the HealthPlex. We offer state-of-the-art equipment and a supportive environment that will help you continue the positive lifestyle changes that have been incorporated into your recovery.
Cost for joining our program is $25 and you can bring your spouse or exercise partner for an additional $20. Our hours are Monday through Friday 7:30 am to 8:00 pm, Saturday 7:30 to noon. We are closed on Sunday. For more information, call Dave Watkins at 330-602-0719, ext. 2370.
Our team of therapists are specially trained to treat women's distinctive needs. Our expertise includes: incontinence, pelvic/vaginal pain, prenatal and postpartum musculosketelal pain, osteoporosis, and breast surgery post-op pain.
Chronic Pain Management
We understand that chronic pain is a challenging condition. Our goal is to help patients gain relief from chronic pain while increasing their level of physical ability. We offer stretching and strengthening exercises, massage, and other therapies, which can improve range of motion and help break the chronic pain cycle.
Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)
Therapists treat conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Conditions may include post-operative pain, disc derangement, hypo or hypermobility, poor posture and associated headaches.
