When SBJI initiated its Physical Therapy program in 2006, the goal was, and continues to be, to offer high quality orthopedic Physical Therapy to the southwest. Today, SBJI continues to work toward this goal by opening a new treatment facility in June of 2009 that offers a spacious contemporary gym, treatment rooms for individual care, and an expanded therapy staff that includes three physical therapists and two physical therapy technicians with many years of experience dealing with upper extremities, lower extremities, and spine problems.
The Physical Therapy program strives to provide service in a timely manner and offers individual treatment programs developed by the therapists and the patient to help reach patients' goals, whether they may desire to return to work, sports, or daily life. The program emphasizes personalized one-on-one treatment and manual therapies. Therapists also work with patients to develop home programs that empower patients and make their healing process quicker.
SBJI offers treatment for post surgical orthopedic patients, people trying to avoid surgery, and people just trying to recover from sprains, strains, and fractures.
In January 2009, SBJI opened its Occupational Therapy program in Deming, NM. This program was expanded to the Silver City office in June 2009 with the opening of the new treatment facility.
Occupational Therapy is a treatment modality that helps individuals achieve independence in all areas of their lives. It assists people in developing the "skills for the job of living;" skills that are necessary for independent and satisfying lives.
Services that SBJI's Occupational Therapy program offer include customized treatment programs designed to improve one's ability to perform daily activities, performance skills assessments and appropriate treatment, adaptive equipment recommendations and usage training, and education for patients, family members and/or caregivers.
