Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

Physical therapy is crucial to successful recovery and pain reduction. For total joint replacement patients and other patients who stay at the hospital, physical or occupational therapy starts the same day of surgery and is administered twice daily thereafter. A therapy room is located on the Orthopedic Unit and includes all equipment necessary to make sure patients can maneuver safely and successfully once at home or work.

The therapy room, a simulated home-like environment, has stairs on which patients can practice, a bathtub to practice and prepare for successful tub transfers, and all other necessary gym equipment needed for physical or occupational therapy. Physical therapists work with each patient on a one-on-one basis, closely evaluating individual progress.

Walking is encouraged after surgery. The hallways of the orthopedic unit have been strategically designed to promote walking. Diamond shapes are positioned in the hallway flooring at a distance of 25 feet apart from the center of one diamond to the center of the next, so that patients can gage walking distances while recovering.

Proper therapy is necessary for comfort and successful surgery outcomes.

A state-of-the-art gym offering rehabilitative programs by therapy experts is located at 1143 East Main Street. Here outpatients can receive therapy and total joint patients can receive continued therapy. This facility also specializes in sports and work-related injuries.
