Sanford Bemidji Peak Performance Rehabilitation Therapy Program
Sanford Bemidji Peak Performance employs a dedicated team of therapists providing:
- Physical Therapy: assisting you to regain strength, endurance, balance, and coordination to allow for independence with walking and general mobility.
- Occupational Therapy: helping you to regain independence with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as dressing, grooming, bathing, and cooking.
- Speech-Language Pathology: working to improve swallow function, cognition (mental functioning dealing with learning and reasoning), and communication skills.
Sanford Bemidji Peak Performance is the leading provider of therapy services in the Bemidji and surrounding area.
Our therapists practice in many settings. Because all of our Peak Performance therapists are part of the same program, they are able to communicate easily among each other and share the latest information about your care. This direct line of communication is important in coordinating the care that you need, care that is matched by no other provider in the area. The complete sequence of care we offer allows us to help you achieve your best level of function. We, at Sanford Bemidji Peak Performance, look forward to serving you.
