Pediatric Rehabilitation Services 

Austintown Rehabilitation Services provides comprehensive pediatric physical, occupational and speech therapy. All pediatric therapy takes place on the dedicated pediatric side of the rehabilitation facility, which is separate from adult therapy. We provide standardized developmental evaluations, play-based therapies, fine motor activity, gross motor activity, sensory integration, visual motor training, splinting, self-help training and speech language therapy. Once an evaluation is complete, recommendations and treatments are provided based on findings to help each child develop successfully. The plan of care focuses on the goals of the family and the child. 

Lymphedema Treatment 

The lymphedema treatment program specializes in the treatment of patients who have developed lymphedema in the upper or lower extremities following breast cancer, surgery, trauma, infection, congenital abnormalities or vascular insufficiencies. Our team of occupational therapists certified in lymphedema management, perform a thorough evaluation and set-up a treatment program based on their findings to help reduce the swelling. Compression sleeves, manual techniques and manual lymphedema pumps are all used to assist in recovery.
