  Therapy Excellence Across All Specialty Areas
At BDCH, we rebuild lives using the most current techniques and proven methods to improve or remediate limiting conditions.
 
Several BDCH therapists have received training and/or certification in skills that cross specialty areas, providing our patients with more options for care.
 
Occupational Therapy (OT)
In addition to helping patients regain the ability to do normal daily activities, such as cooking and self-care, occupational therapists also specialize in ergonomics and give treatment for lymphedema, wounds, and hand, arm and shoulder injuries. Crossbow evaluations are also provided.

BDCH OTs also specialize in ergonomics and worker compensation rehabilitation and provide treatment for lymphedema, breast cancer rehab and education, wounds, etc.

Biofeedback, meanwhile, is a treatment used by some OTs to treat conditions such as incontinence and pain. 

Physical Therapy (PT)
When working with muscle, joint disorders or injuries, movement without pain or restriction and return to optimal function is the goal of physical therapy. Therapists use a variety of manual techniques with patients and prescribe therapeutic exercise programs.

PTs provide treatment for preventing falls, balance or dizziness disorders, and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) and specialize in sports injury rehabilitation, also.

Speech Therapy (ST)
Speech-language pathologists work on the ability to communicate, think, remember, and problem-solve. Their training includes treatment of disorders related to swallowing and voice. 

The Speech Therapist at BDCH is a trained voice specialist with certification in Lee Silverman Voice Therapy, which is especially beneficial for those with Parkinson's Disease. Our Speech Therapist also conducts videostroboscopy to look at vocal chords, working with our ENT specialist.

Biofeedback Clinic for Pain Management or Relaxation
a
Used alone or in combination with other treatment methods, biofeedback can be an effective treatment option for:
  • Chronic pain, migraine and tension headaches
  • Spasticity, muscular weakness and imbalance caused by stroke
  • Urinary incontinence and pelvic pain
  • Anxiety and high blood pressure
  • Raynaud’s Disease
  • TMJ
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rectal incontinence
How does Biofeedback Work?
Biofeedback therapy helps you learn to control bodily functions, such as muscle tension, heart rate, respiration rate and hand temperature using your own mind without drugs or pain relievers. It measures a person’s physiological responses through sensors that pick up electrical signals from the muscles. These are translated into visual and auditory feedback to a computer screen. 

BDCH Rehabilitation therapists train patients on how to interpret and control that feedback to control bodily responses.
 
Beaver Dam Community Hospital’s Rehabilitation Services therapists have specialized biofeedback training. They are uniquely qualified to teach pain management and relaxation techniques. 

Treatment may also include patient education on dietary triggers, sleep patterns, exercise, behavior strategies and lifestyle choices. Therapists utilize biofeedback in conjunction with standard physical and occupational therapy regimens for those patients with symptoms requiring muscular training.
 
Discuss Biofeedback Clinic With Your Physician
Individuals interested in biofeedback therapy should discuss this treatment option with their physician. Most insurances cover this treatment when appropriate.
