What Does INSIGHT Comprehensive Therapy Have to Offer?

Physical therapy

Our physical therapy team is professionally trained to use evaluation, traction, electrical stimulation, therapeutic exercises and mobility to treat both acute and chronic pain, physical impairments caused from injuries, past traumas or physical illnesses. Our physical therapists use their training to treat a variety of issues ranging from musculoskeletal to neurological disorders and specializes in neurological and orthopedic rehabilitation. We also offer on site aquatic therapy.
Our therapists focus on patient assessments and plan of care creation specific to each individual. Our physical therapy team collaborates with the different specialities within Insight Comprehensive Therapy and also work directly with the referring physician or provider. We strive to help our patients return to the optimal level of function. Our therapists are able to assess wheelchair mobility and management training, prosthetic and orthotic training and assessment of fit and instruction for use. Our therapists most commonly use therapeutic activities including bed mobility training, transfer training, and optimally wheelchair mobility or gait training. This can also be integrated with balance training sitting and standing to improve stability and safety with transfers and gait.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is a healthcare profession that helps individuals regain maximum function after injury or illness that has led to some degree of physical or mental impairment affecting their ability to participate in normal activities of daily living. They help patients develop, recover, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for daily living and working. Occupational therapists can work with a variety of patients complaints, including, but not limited to, pain management patients, neuro-recovery patients, orthopedic patients, ergonomics, mental health patients, community reintegration patients, group therapy patients, and can assess patients hoping to return to work. OT helps patients regain independence and teach modifications or techniques to help an individual become as independent as possible in their activities of daily living.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapists specialize in the treatment of speech, language, voice, communication and/or auditory processing disorders. They can treat speech fluency, speech sound production, etc. Our speech therapist, Sally Jakeway, is a certified vital stimulation provider. We specialize in the treatment of patients with dysphagia.
A Speech-Language Pathologist can evaluate and treat:
  • Language expression and comprehension: Receptive language (the message ‘in’) is the ability to understand information. Expressive language (the message ‘out’) is the ability to communicate ideas and thoughts. Language deficits can occur with spoken language or printed information. An SLP can work with clients who may be having trouble understanding others or ‘getting the message out.’ Medical setbacks such as strokes, traumatic brain injuries, and progressive medical conditions can affect how a person is able to process and express information. An example is aphasia which is an acquired language disorder, most commonly from strokes (National Aphasia Association, ) that affects the production and/or comprehension of language.
  • Cognitive-communication skills: This includes thought organization and planning skills, memory impairments, attention, and problem-solving. This set of skills is important for safety awareness and decision-making. An SLP can work with a client to help strengthen cognitive-communication skills and set up tools to support these skills.
  • Swallowing disorders (dysphagia): Difficulty swallowing can be a result from injury, stroke, illness, or a medical procedure. An SLP can work with clients on strengthening swallowing abilities and by making recommendations on appropriate diet textures. When appropriate, neuromuscular electrical stimulation may be used to augment swallowing exercises.
  • Speech disorders: this can include problems with fluency, impaired ability to make sound, and changes in speech intelligibility. Medical procedures, medical conditions, and injury can lead to changes in a person’s ability to produce speech. Working with an SLP can help maximize speech intelligibility and enhance communication success.
  • An SLP can also work with clients who need augmentative and alternative forms of communication (AAC) when verbal communication is impaired or limited. Options ranging from high-tech to low-tech tools may be explored.
The speech-language pathologist will discuss a personalized plan of care with each person individually.

Chiropractic Care

At the Insight Neuro Chiropractic Center, you get so much more than a quick treatment. You get over 50 years of clinical experience and the expertise of board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians in Functional Neurology and Manipulation Under Anesthesia.

Common procedures/services used to treat patients:

  • Adjustments: chiropractor uses his or her hands to manually manipulate the spine.  In addition, there are advanced,  low-force mechanical devices to manipulate the spine that our doctors utilize.
  • Traction: use a roller table system to help massage the muscles and ligaments along the spine, help pump cerebrospinal fluid, and tractions each individual segment as rollers move across the spine, to relieve disc pain
  • Nonsurgical decompression: use a specialized machine to decrease interspinal pressure to alleviate bulging disc and radiating pain
