Norman Regional offers advanced, specialized rehabilitation services at Norman Regional Nine, which is conveniently located on the southwest corner of Highway 9 and 24th Avenue Southeast in Norman.Treatment is based on our staff’s proven philosophy that helping patients help themselves promote a faster, more complete recovery.

Physical therapy intervention focuses on posture, mobility, strength, endurance, cardiopulmonary function, balance, coordination, joint mobility, flexibility, pain control and activities of daily living. Mobility training may include the use of orthotic, prosthetic or assistive devices. Our therapist focus on exercise, neuromuscular reeducation and manual therapy to help you reach your goals. Therapists may also use modalities such as heat/cold therapy, ultrasound and electrical stimulation sound to name a few. Education is an important part of each treatment plan. Many of our therapist have specialties in treating disorders to include vestibular, lymphedema, pelvic floor and dry needling.
Our services include:
Dry Needling (DN) is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments, or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions. Dry Needling can also be coupled with electrical current to further reduce pain for patients with appropriate conditions.
Evidence has shown dry needling can significantly decrease:
Occupational therapy maximizes independence for people with physical limitations and helps prevent further disability. Our therapists will work with you on activities of daily living, improving functional use of the arm and hand, creating and fitting orthotics/splints and teaching you how to use adaptive equipment. We offer a variety of different services listed below:
Both of our Outpatient Rehabilitation locations employ certified hand therapists. A certified hand therapist is experienced in the treatment of hand and upper-extremity dysfunction resulting from arthritis, injury or cumulative trauma. Hand therapists have extensive knowledge in orthotics fabrication for a variety of diagnoses, creating orthotics — or splints — for post-op surgical protection or immobilization, correction of injury or deformity, and conservative management of common upper extremity syndromes. Hand Therapy can help with:
Speech/language pathologists work with clients of all ages. Our therapist assess, diagnose and treat communication and swallowing disorders in both children and adults. Some of these conditions include:
Pediatric physical therapy is dedicated to assisting children in achieving optimal physical function and mobility. Specializing in the unique needs of infants, children and adolescents, pediatric PTs design interventions to promote the ability to move, reduce pain and restore function. Children with developmental delays, congenital conditions, neuromuscular disorders or injuries can benefit from these services. Through exercises, manual therapy, and play-based techniques, pediatric PTs aim to improve balance, strength, coordination and flexibility, ensuring children can engage in daily activities and reach developmental milestones.
Pediatric speech therapy focuses on helping children develop, improve or rehabilitate their communication abilities. This includes addressing challenges with speech sounds, language, fluency, voice and swallowing. Pediatric speech therapists, or speech-language pathologists (SLPs), utilize specialized techniques and interventions to treat children with various conditions, such as developmental delays, auditory processing issues, stuttering, voice disorders or those with cleft palate and other structural anomalies. The therapy often incorporates play-based and interactive activities tailored to the child's age and developmental level. The ultimate goal is to enhance the child's ability to understand and express thoughts, feelings and information, facilitating better interactions with their environment and peers.
Pediatric occupational therapy (OT) focuses on helping children develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults. Through therapeutic play, activities and exercises, our pediatric OTs assist children in improving their motor, cognitive, sensory processing, communication, and play skills. This therapy is crucial for children with developmental delays, physical disabilities, sensory processing disorders or other challenges. The primary goal is to enable children to participate fully in school and social situations, improving their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
Our therapists provide preventive and post-injury care for recreational and competitive athletes. Acute injury care with a progressive strengthening and conditioning program is specifically designed to get the athlete back to the game as quickly and safely as possible while decreasing the risk of future injury.
Visits can be provided through telehealth for PT, OT and Speech therapy if approved by your insurance carrier or if done through private pay.
Norman Regional Health System is pleased to offer a two-part speech therapy program to help individuals with Parkinson’s regain and maintain effective communication: SPEAK OUT!® followed by The LOUD Crowd®.
SPEAK OUT!® places emphasis on speaking with intent and converting speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Together, patients and their speech-language pathologist work through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a SPEAK OUT!® Workbook.
Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!®, patients transition to The LOUD Crowd®. This maintenance program consists of weekly group sessions led by a speech-language pathologist. The SPEAK OUT!® exercises are performed, and group members provide support, encouragement, and accountability to one another.
Participation in The LOUD Crowd®, along with daily home practice and six-month re-evaluations, has been shown to help patients maintain their communication skills throughout the progression of Parkinson’s. For more information about SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd® or to schedule a speech evaluation, please call us at 405-447-1571.
