What do YOU want from YOUR therapy?

At Appling Healthcare’s Rehabilitation and Therapy Department in Baxley, Georgia, the focus is always on YOU. We holistically treat people of all ages – from infants and toddlers to geriatrics – and are proud to deliver treatments that improve our patients’ function, quality of life and overall health. 

All of our rehabilitation and therapy services are provided in partnership with BenCura Rehabilitation Services, a premier provider of innovative rehabilitation therapy. Appling Healthcare and BenCura have a shared vision of delivering unparalleled patient care, with the ultimate goal of getting patients back to living their best lives. 

We offer both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation in Appling County, all designed to meet your needs in a caring and healing environment. Using the most cutting-edge approaches and modern equipment, our therapists develop personalized treatment plans that maximize patient recovery.

Inpatient Rehabilitation

For patients who have had a serious illness, recent surgery or acute injury, our goal is to improve their mobility and help them resume normal activities as soon as possible. Our therapists provide rehabilitation services in a wide range of settings throughout Appling Healthcare’s hospital facility: the Intensive Care Unit, Acute Care, short-term care in the nursing pavilion, long-term care in the pavilion, and the behavioral health unit. 

Our Swing Bed Program is for patients who need additional care after surgery or hospitalization. The program includes skilled nursing care along with rehabilitation, ensuring a smooth transition between acute care and home or a long-term care facility.

Outpatient Therapy

We’re proud of our new outpatient clinic in Baxley, conveniently located at 34 NW Park Ave., Suite A. The new office combines multiple forms of therapy under one roof: physical, occupational and speech therapy. The facility features all new equipment along with a specially designated pediatric therapy room to better accommodate the needs of young children and their families.

Continuity of Care

At Appling Healthcare’s Rehabilitation and Therapy Department, we take the time to get to know our patients. You’ll see the same therapy team throughout the duration of your treatment, which means we’ll develop a strong partnership and more than likely a friendship. From the start of your care to the end of your recovery, our therapists will be by your side to help ensure seamless transitions and a better outcome.

Helping you feel better…one step at a time

We holistically treat people of all ages – from infants and adolescents to geriatrics – and are proud to deliver treatments that improve our patients’ function, quality of life and overall health. 

Our therapies and specialty programs include:

Physical therapy: Physical Therapy (PT) focuses on movement! PT uses a hands-on approach to increase mobility, strength and function while also decreasing pain. The physical therapy team at Appling rehab can help you regain your strength, balance and independence in movement following your injury, sickness, or surgery. From stroke or cardiac recovery to post-surgical healing, our physical therapy staff can customize a recovery plan to fit your specific needs and reach your desired goals. Let us help you safely get back on your feet and return to what moves you! 

Occupational therapy: Occupational Therapy (OT) is all about FUNCTION. OT uses a holistic approach to allow you to be as independent as possible! What allows you to accomplish your day-to-day activities? Can you dress yourself? Feed yourself? Can you sign your checks legibly or raise your arm over your head without pain? Is your child meeting age-appropriate milestones in his/her development? All these things and more are what the occupational therapy team at Appling Healthcare focuses on to improve your independence and quality of life. 

Speech Therapy: Speech Therapy (ST) is more than just “how you talk”. In addition to properly forming sounds and composing sentences, projecting your voice and managing tone, helping with thought organization, memory, and word-finding difficulty, a speech therapist can also assist you in increasing your swallowing function that is often diminished after injury or illness. Our speech therapists at Appling healthcare can perform swallow studies on-site to determine safest diet consistency and assess your risk for aspiration. They are also certified to use a modality device to help strengthening the muscles in your throat that lead to safer swallowing without risks of aspirating.
