Outpatient Therapy Center
The Outpatient Therapy Center at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center offers comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation services including speech, occupational and physical therapy. Therapy after an injury, illness or medical procedure can promote healing, increase strength and endurance and teach you how to prevent further pain or injury.
Conveniently located in the hospital’s Medical Office Building I, the facility offers standard exercise equipment from bikes and upper cycles to weights, as well as advanced technology to assist patients including:
- AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill — Spring Valley Hospital is the only outpatient therapy facility in Las Vegas to offer this anti-gravity machine that uses “differential air pressure.” Designed by NASA to unweight the patient, it enables patient rehabilitation with less pain while reducing injury risk
- Bertec Balance Advantage — advanced, virtual reality type equipment for testing and treating patients with balance disorders
- Kinesis One System — this equipment allows for zero-impact exercises that promote functional, rather than muscular training. The exercises focus on movement to improve strength, endurance, flexibility and posture control in any three-dimensional movement
Physical therapists treat a range of musculoskeletal, orthopedic and neurological injuries/disorders to help patients restore movement, strength, endurance, coordination or balance. Any patient who suffers from chronic pain, weakness, or stiffness may be a candidate for physical therapy, regardless of age.

Occupational therapy helps restore and enhance a patient's living skills so they can return to a productive lifestyle. During occupational therapy, patients are trained to resume their daily routines, including toileting, grooming, bathing, dressing, cooking and working.
Spring Valley therapists also help children gain the skills needed to perform the activities — or occupations — of daily life. Using a family-centered, strength-based approach to treatment, therapists help children enhance their self-care skills, fine and gross motor skills, play skills, visual motor skills and sensory processing. Children who may benefit from occupational therapy include those with attention deficit disorder, fine and gross motor delay and Autism-related disorders.
Speech and Language Pathology
Certified speech language pathologists offer a comprehensive program of evaluation and treatment for people who develop speech, language, swallowing, or cognitive deficits following an injury or illness such as stroke, brain tumors and neuromuscular disease. Among the conditions treated are:
- Aphasia - A disturbance in comprehension and expression of language caused by a disorder in the brain. Asphasia ranges from having difficulty remembering words to losing the ability to read, write or speak.
- Apraxia - A speech disorder in which a person has trouble correctly and consistently saying what he or she wants to say.
- Dysarthria - A motor speech disorder often caused when the muscles of the mouth, face and respiratory system become weak, move slowly, or do not move at all after a stroke or other brain injury.
- Dysphagia - A condition in which it becomes difficult for people to swallow so that it takes more time and effort to move food or liquid from mouth to stomach.
- Voice disorders - Difficulty speaking because of injury to the vocal cords, including those caused by infections, upward movement of stomach acids into the throat, growths due to a virus, cancer, and diseases that paralyze the vocal cords.
- Laryngectomy - A surgical procedure in which the larynx is removed, usually due to cancer. Following surgery, patients must relearn how to speak.
- Glossectomy - A surgical procedure in which part or all of the tongue is removed, often because of cancer.
