Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital’s Physical Therapy Department offers easy access to outpatient services through the hospital's beautiful welcome area. The ergonomic design creates a work environment as efficient as the employees who staff it and allows for unobstructed views of all exercise areas for added patient safety. With an eye to maximum patient privacy and comfort, treatment areas are oversized and roomy, maintaining the appealing bright color-scheme apparent in other areas of the hospital.
Speech Therapy also offers Ampcare for the treatment of swallowing disorder as well as LSVT LOUD for the treatment of Parkinson's. LOUD is the first speech treatment with Level 1 evidence and established efficacy for treating voice and speech disorders in people with Parkinson’s disease, and it offers application to other neurological disorders, as well. The research on LSVT LOUD has documented improved impact on multiple levels of functioning in people with Parkinson’s, following treatment. The benefits include increased vocal loudness, improved articulation and speech intelligibility, improved intonation, improvements in facial expression and changes in neural functioning related to voice and speech.
LSVT LOUD is a standardized treatment protocol that is customizable to the unique communication goals of each patient, impacting a range of disease severity and communication impairments. Memorial has a LSVT LOUD cerified therapist.
