Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy
The Arrigan Rehabilitation Center offers comprehensive physical and occupational therapy to assist injured workers who experience a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological concerns. Our highly qualified therapists evaluate the injured worker, create individualized treatment plans, assess progress, and supervise all treatments. Experienced in the industrial health setting, our physical and occupational therapy assistants directly provide our patients with many of the daily treatments.
The Center offers a spacious gym equipped with all necessary strengthening, conditioning, and flexibility equipment. The Center also possesses one of the largest therapy pools in Southern New England, which is 20 meters in length and has a constant temperature of 92 degrees F. Here we provide therapeutic aquatics with the aid of temperature, buoyancy, and the gentle but firm resistive force of water. This allows for strengthening and mobility training with greater ease and less discomfort.
Many of our injured workers receive a combination of therapeutic aquatics with either land-based therapeutic exercise/conditioning/mobility training or work hardening.
Our staff now also includes three Certified Hand Therapists who can treat acute hand injuries/post-op patients, administer therapeutic exercises, fabricate splints, and make recommendations for additional adaptive equipment.
All treatment staff are experienced in the treatment of work-related injuries, and participate in annual professional development and continuing education seminars. Many of our therapists present at local and national conferences. Also, some of our therapists supervise internships for physical and occupational therapy students from local colleges and universities, such as The University of Rhode Island, The Community College of Rhode Island, and The New England Institute of Technology.
