Outpatient Therapy Church Street

Welcome to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital’s Outpatient Therapy Services, conveniently located one mile from the main hospital. This site specializes in neurologic and medically complex diagnoses. Multidisciplinary services, including physical, occupational and speech therapy, are offered through a patient-­-centered treatment program. Goals are geared toward increasing overall function and improving ability to carry out activities of daily living.

The therapy team works collaboratively with the referring physician:

  • Physical Therapists work on helping patients regain mobility and reduce pain.
  • Occupational Therapists work with patients on improving upper body function and the skills needed to perform every day activities, like self-­-care and homemaking. Adaptive equipment needs are identified to maximize independent function.
  • Speech therapists work with patients on improving communication, language, and swallowing ability.
