To an average person with a minor back injury, therapy is a short term experience. For our participants who spend most of their day strapped into a wheelchair, therapy becomes a necessary part of life. Often the question is “when will therapy stop?” in short the answer is “we hope never”. Our goal is to increase mobility whenever possible. At the very least we try to maintain the function people already have.
Speech therapy has little to do with speaking and much to do with communicating and swallowing. Everyone has something to say, we find the best method for our participants to speak their minds even if they have to use a computer to “speak” for them.
