Bolivar Medical offers comprehensive rehabilitation and acute care for inpatients as well as outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy. We provide highly-experienced therapists and provide care in a family-oriented environment where individuals who have suffered an illness or injury have the opportunity to rebuild their lives and a higher level of function.
Our services are close to home for people throughout the Mississippi Delta, thus eliminating the inconvenience of overnight hotel stays or enduring long drives to hospitals out of the area.
If you or a loved one are recovering from a stroke, orthopedic injury, traumatic brain injury, or other serious condition and are 18 years or older, Bolivar Medical has the resources to help you recover. According to newly released stroke rehabilitation guidelines developed by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, it is recommended that patients suffering from a stroke be treated at an inpatient rehabilitation facility rather than at a skilled nursing facility.
Physical, Occupational and Speech therapists provide evaluations and treatments to our acute care patients within the hospital.
Bolivar Medical Center's Pediatric Therapy Department offers comprehensive evaluations, consultations and therapeutic services for children from birth to adolescence. The team consists of professionals believing in a family centered approach to treatment.
Bolivar Medical Center offers two types of movement screenings.
The Functional Movement Screening (FMS) is a screening tool used to evaluate seven foundational movement patterns in individuals with no current complaint or musculoskeletal injury. The FMS is not intended to diagnosis orthopedic problems but rather demonstrate opportunities for improved movement in individuals.
A Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a total body movement diagnostic system. The assessment provides an efficient method for systematically finding the cause of pain, not just the source. It is a repeatable diagnostic metric and provides the opportunity to differentiate between mobility versus stability/motor control dysfunctions in order to provide the most appropriate intervention for the problem at hand.
Whether you recovered in the hospital or in your own home, COVID-19 or coronavirus, can create long-lasting side effects – even after your body fights off the virus. After both severe and minor COVID-19 infections, many patients will experience a variety of heart and lung complications that may require rehabilitation services to overcome.
To ensure the ability to resume your daily work and hobbies safely and effectively, we are uniquely prepared to guide post-COVID-19 patients through the next phase of their recovery.
