Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy

Total Rehab is an interdisciplinary therapy practice serving adults and children of all ages in McAlester and Eufaula, OK. 

Founded in 2006, our physical, occupational and speech therapists work as a team to listen to you, evaluate your needs, and create a comprehensive plan to help you or your child feel and function better.

We have more than a dozen therapists working at our two outpatient clinic locations, in local schools and doing home health. We are proud of our years of experience, our high-quality work environment and our commitment to the community.


We are dedicated to continuing treatment for our patients. Our clinic is open and adhering to meticulous protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also offer telehealth visits for patients to continue their care from the comfort of home.
