Henry County Rehabilitation Center
100+ Years of Combined Medical Experience in Napoleon, OH
At Henry County Hospital, we care for patients so that they can return
to a functional lifestyle as soon as possible. The loss of mobility or
cognitive function due to an illness or injury can be a devastating time
for both the patient and their loved ones. We hope to lessen the devastation
and provide a personalized plan to help a patient recover their independence,
as well as reach their maximum potential.
We offer comprehensive rehabilitative services including:
Occupational Therapy - The goal of this therapy is to help the patient achieve a functional
lifestyle and maximize their ability to care for themselves and live independently.
Physical Therapy - The goal of physical therapy is to help patients treat neurological,
muscular, bone, joint, and other disorders caused by pain, swelling, limited
movement, and more.
Speech Therapy - The goal of speech therapy is to help patients develop a program that
enables them to improve their ability to speak, read, write, swallow,
remember, and communicate.
Aquatic Therapy - The therapy is performed in our warm water pool and a therapist guides
you through a one-on-one session to increase flexibility/strength, decrease
pain and swelling, and stimulate balance and muscle control.
All of our therapies are available and offered to patients of all ages.
Family members and loved ones are encouraged to be part of the experience as well.
One of the most widely used joints in the body is perhaps one of the least-known.
The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is a small joint in the jaw. Nearly
half of all adults will experience pain or discomfort caused by this joint
at some point in their lifetime. It is more common in women than in men
and more common in individuals aged 15-40. It can result in headaches,
decreased jaw mobility, jaw clicking, facial pain, pain in the joint or
ears, or pain in the masticatory muscles.
If diagnosed with TMJ, we can provide therapy such as:
- Jaw exercises
- Pain control modalities
- Postural education and training
- Manual therapy
- Habit and activity modification
TMJ can be caused by grinding teeth, bad posture, misalignment, and more.
Our rehabilitation services can effectively improve your TMJ and get your
jaw back to optimal performance.
Parents want their children to lead a well-adjusted life. At Henry County
Hospital, we strive to help children in need of therapy reach their maximum
potential. This can include therapy that addresses handwriting, speech,
socialization, organization, daily living activities, coordination, and more.
We routinely treat a variety of conditions including the following:
- Developmental delays
- Birth defects
- Cerebral palsy
- Juvenile arthritis
- Genetic disorders
All of our pediatric therapy is customized to each child's individual
needs and carried out in a fun environment that utilizes play-like therapy
to address the child's condition. In addition, our Speech Language
Pathologist does an excellent job of providing speech therapy to children
with autism, apraxia, and more.
Lymphedema occurs in patients that experience excess fluid in a particular
part of the body. For breast cancer patients, this is usually the arms.
Because of your damaged lymph nodes, your body cannot process the fluid
correctly, causing inability to use your fingers, increased pain, and
difficulty caring for yourself.
Our physical and occupational therapy staff are specially trained to treat
and manage lymphedema symptoms:
- Strength and movement exercises
- Home activities to reduce swelling
- Body positioning techniques to increase drainage
- Supplies and techniques to wrap extremities to decrease swelling
- Prevention techniques
Any heaviness, aching, swelling, or other sensations in an extremity should
be monitored carefully by health care professionals and promptly addressed
Pelvic Health Therapy
Our pelvic health services can help patients who are suffering from urinary
or bowel incontinence, pain during pregnancy or post-partum, and pelvic pain.
We offer the following options to address pelvic health concerns:
- Internal/external pelvic floor treatments
- Manual therapy techniques
- Therapeutic exercises
- Aquatic therapy
- Postural awareness
- Body mechanics
- Pain modalities
- Bracing options
Patients can expect one-on-one evaluations and treatments, an individual
plan of care, treatments ranging from one to three times a week and appointment
times generally lasting 45-60 minutes.
Henry County Hospital now offers LSVT BIG therapy. This is a whole body,
high-amplitude-based exercise program triggering activation across motor
systems. Research has shown that this exercise can improve brain function
and slow disease progression. LSVT BIG can be modified for the patient,
but typically includes four days a week for 4 consecutive weeks totaling
16 hours of individual sessions at high effort.
In addition, our Delay the Disease (DTD) program is designed to delay the
progression of symptoms of Parkinson's Disease through exercise. We
use strength, balance, and coordination therapy to help the patient reach
optimal function. We also incorporate motivation and optimistic teaching methods.
Vertigo-the sensation of lost balance and whirling-is caused by abnormalities
that affect the inner ear. Vestibular dysfunction, or vertigo, can be
caused by the following:
- Degeneration of hair cells in inner ear
- Viral or bacterial infection
- Alterations in ear pressure
- Head trauma
- Calcium particles in the semicircular canals
A trained therapist can treat these symptoms with a series of timed head
movements and education in exercise, to assist with decreasing the likelihood
