MMPT provides PT, OT, and Speech Therapy services to adults. In the adult arena, the services range from orthopedic issues (total joint replacements, ankle sprains, back and neck pain) to sports injuries (rotator cuff repair, ACL rehab, etal) to neurological rehabilitation (stroke, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis.) Because MMPT has four locations and over 30 therapists, there is almost always a therapist who can specifically and expertly handle the problem at hand. There are therapists with certification and specialization in the hand, spine (both neck and back), and lower extremity at MMPT. This is a rarity among therapists, and Becky Sherwin, PT, COMT, is the only IAOM Certified therapist in the state of Louisiana. Amy Colvin, OT, Certified Hand Therapist, is one of few in the state as well. Melanie Massey, PT, has been a physical therapist for 19 years and has always had her focus as neurological rehabilitation, i.e. strokes and brain injuries. She is also trained in Women’s Health, making her a very rare practitioner in northeast Louisiana, addressing male and female incontinence and pelvic pain.
The occupational therapist’s approach to rehabilitation is a holistic one that goes beyond an isolated injury or diagnosis to include the entire person and each individual’s functional needs.
Physical Therapy serves to preserve and restore maximum functional abilities with physical tasks. We strive to prevent and rehabilitate impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities therefore maintaining and promoting fitness, health, and quality of life.
Adult Speech Therapy uses a variety of treatments and strategies to regain functional cognitive abilities related to speech and language and improve swallowing problems.
