Regional Therapy Services

Altru is the No. 1 resource for physical, speech, occupational and hand therapy in the region. We serve our rural patients in their homes, nursing homes, hospitals and clinics.

Why Choose Altru for Therapy Services?

Whether you’re trying to recover from an injury or surgery, working on overcoming a speech-related problem or managing a chronic condition, you shouldn’t have to travel hours to get therapy. That’s why Altru has therapists who travel extensively throughout the Red River Valley and beyond in both North Dakota and Minnesota, providing much-needed therapy services to a number of communities.

Our therapists use a team approach to treat patients of all ages and injuries on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Therapists work closely with the patient’s physician, family and other providers to develop the most effective rehabilitation program possible. Family members are especially encouraged to play an active role in the rehabilitation process for their loved one.

We help patients regain their strength and mobility after an injury. Our therapists also provide services such as sports enhancement, work injury rehabilitation, habilitative services, pre-employment screens and other community needs.

Types of Regional Therapy Services Available

The team at Altru is dedicated to individualized care, no matter your age or physical ability. You may require a combination of therapies that are tailored to help you meet your individual goals. We offer:

  • Physical therapy, which helps patients who are recovering from an accident, coping with a disability or managing a chronic condition improve function

  • Occupational therapy, which helps patients relearn how to do daily activities after an injury or disease, or for people with disabilities to assist in learning how to do things for the first time

  • Speech-language therapy, which helps children and adults alike by treating disorders that affect the ability to communicate

  • Hand therapy, which uses a variety of techniques to provide care for the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand after an injury or chronic condition
