Rehabilitation Programs

Orthopedic Program

Individuals who have undergone joint replacement, experienced a musculoskeletal injury, sustained bone trauma, or have been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease, often have limited function and mobility, pain and other complications. The Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program is designed for patients who are medically stable, but have limitations due to an orthopedic injury or surgery. Conditions commonly treated include hip fracture, hip replacement, knee replacement, amputation, or multiple broken limbs. Our focus is to begin as soon as possible after surgery to improve strength, mobility, and support healing, to facilitate a rapid return to independence. Some common areas which the program may address include:

  • Electrical stimulation
  • Treadmill training
  • Assistive equipment and technologies
  • Advanced pain management
  • Strength
  • Range of motion
  • Self care skills
  • Prosthetic/ortho fitting and training
  • Mobility/ambulation
  • Home safety

Stroke and Neurological Program

Stroke, also known as a “Brain Attack” is a brain injury that originates when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells do not receive oxygen and begin to die. This may lead to a loss in abilities controlled by the affected area of the brain.

Our Stroke and Neurological Program is designed for persons who are medically stable, but have limitations due to a stroke or other neurological disorders. We also treat Parkinson’s Disease, Neuropathy, Multiple Sclerosis, and other types of neurological conditions. Patients who may benefit from the program are those who have experienced a loss in the areas of mobility, self-care, communication, or cognition. Some conditions that the program may address include:

  • Paralysis
  • Weakness
  • Gait disturbance
  • Coordination difficulties
  • Incontinence
  • Problems with sensory loss
  • Impairments of memory or problem solving skills
  • Communication problems (aphasia)
  • Swallowing problems (dysphagia)
  • Home safety
