Lifespan Rehabilitation Services offers a wide range of rehabilitation programs, all with excellent outcomes.  Our rehabilitation specialists have the training, experience, and expertise to provide the highest quality, patient-focused rehabilitative care for all ages and levels of ability. Our outpatient services offer convenient locations and hours, as well as access to Lifespan’s network of experts in all medical disciplines.

We have convenient outpatient locations throughout the state as well as programs at Rhode Island Hospital and its Hasbro Children’s Hospital, The Miriam Hospital, Vanderbilt Rehabilitation Center at Newport Hospital and Bradley Hospital.

We provide:
  • Outpatient rehabilitation for those who require physical therapy, occupational therapy, audiology services or speech language pathology services
  • Inpatient rehabilitation for patients who still require close medical supervision by a physician, 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care, and at least three hours of coordinated therapies per day
  • Acute care rehabilitation for patients who are experiencing functional impairment or physical deconditioning while hospitalized for any reason
  • Children's rehabilitation for children or adolescents who require occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, audiology, or neurological and pain consultations for physical, developmental, or sensory motor challenges; injuries; or other medical needs.

Our Rehabilitation Services

Our highly trained physical, occupational and speech-language therapists specialize in providing rehabilitative treatment and care for all types of injuries and disorders, whether the goal is restoring function after a minor injury or recovery after serious injury or disease. Conditions that often require rehabilitation include cognitive or neuromuscular disorders, orthopedic conditions or injuries, burns, spine disorders, sports injuries, and recovery from surgery, as well as problems with hearing, speaking, and swallowing. Our goal is to help patients regain lost function, be as independent as possible, and prevent future injury. We provide seamless coordination of care for patients with a full spectrum of Lifespan health care experts including nurses, doctors, surgeons and behavioral health care providers.

What Lifespan Rehabilitative Therapists Offer

Physical Therapy (PT)

Physical therapists use treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, relieve edema, restore function, and prevent disability. Our therapists use the latest equipment available, including assistive devices, Biodex Balance Master, BTE work simulator, stationary bikes, treadmills, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and thermal modalities, weights, and much more.

Occupational Therapy (OT)

Occupational therapists help patients become as independent as possible in performing daily tasks such as eating, drinking, dressing, bathing, cooking, reading, writing, and toileting. They may also help with splints or orthotics, or with specific tasks such as getting into a car from a wheelchair, eating using a nondominant hand, negotiating stairs, and reaching into cupboards for dishes. They also assess an injured employee’s capacity to return to work.

Speech-Language Pathology Services (SLP)

Speech-language pathologists and speech therapists help patients improve their ability to swallow; relearn language and communication skills; and learn ways to improve memory and cope with reduced memory. At Lifespan, we use clinical examination, instrumental technology, and standardized assessments to diagnose disorders and create treatment plans tailored to the patient’s needs. Patients who have suffered a stroke, brain injury, head and neck cancer, or who have neuromuscular disorders may require these services.

Audiology Services

Audiologists evaluate hearing loss and related disorders, including balance (vestibular) disorders and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Lifespan audiology services provides comprehensive audiological assessment and aural rehabilitation, including hearing aids and cochlear implants.

Wound Care

Lifespan Rehabilitation Services offers the full spectrum of wound care services at locations throughout the state. Physical and occupational therapists trained in wound care management provide wound care assessment and treatment for patients with acute and chronic wounds, venous ulcers, and traumatic wounds. Our goal is to heal wounds as quickly and painlessly as possible. More about wound care services »
