    Outpatient Rehabilitation

    We Take Your Care Personally

    Forrest Health's Outpatient Rehabilitation services offer a comprehensive team approach with physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy. Our goals are to treat, heal and prevent injuries and disabilities while rebuilding confidence and restoring function.

    Outpatient rehabilitation is available through all of the Forrest Health hospitals. At Forrest General the facility is located on the campus of the Family YMCA in Hattiesburg. We have the facilities and resources to provide a wide range of therapy services for each patient's individual recovery process.

    Physical Therapy

    Physical therapy focuses on mobility, musculoskeletal impairments and balance skills. With physical therapy, patients can improve their safety and foster their independence. A combination of exercises, procedures, computerized equipment and educational tools are used, all depending on the patients condition. Our physical therapists work with patients to regain the skills needed to independently climb stairs, walk, perform job skills and manage pain.

    Occupational Therapy

    Occupational therapy focuses on restoring a patient's ability to perform the "occupation" of living. Daily living skills such as getting dressed, work or leisure skills and home management skills are practiced or relearned through occupational therapy. Occupational therapists can assist with anything that occupies our time and includes skills for living.
