All patients at Spalding University Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF) can expect a rehabilitation program designed to provide them and their families with the necessary therapy and support resources to reach individualized goals.
First appointments include an evaluation by a licensed therapist who will review the history of the medical problem that brought you to Spalding CORF as well additional medical history. For physical and occupational therapy appointments, a therapist might measure motion, strength and function. For speech therapy, a speech pathologist will conduct assessments related to voice, swallowing and function. The therapist will use this information to create an individualized treatment plan that meets the patient’s goals.
Appointments last 50-60 minutes.
