In addition the addressing pain and physical limitations, our therapists assist in rebuilding the ability to perform activities at home and in the community. The Rehabilitation Hospital has extensive tools to guide patients to higher function and independence, including:
- Transitional Living Apartment, where patients practice navigating a home environment and accomplishing daily living tasks
- Physical therapy gyms, where patients regain movement and function, practice getting in and out of a car and using stairs
- Dining areas, where some patients continue their therapy exercises during mealtimes
- Advanced technology devices to aid therapy progress, including Armeo Power, Ekso Skeleton, Solo-Step, FES RT 300 and Bioness
Therapy is scheduled between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., seven days a week.
Hands-on, individualized therapy sessions include advanced rehabilitative technology, exercises, research-based treatment techniques and manual therapy. If assisting devices are needed, such as a cane or walker, a physical therapist will evaluate and provide training on how to use them safely.
Treatment helps by retraining memory, reasoning, problem solving and decision making. Speech therapists provide strategies for living with speech and language impediments as well as hands-on, computer-assisted and self-monitoring activities.
Treatment is for those with acute or chronic lung disease. Your respiratory therapist will provide education regarding lung and heart illness along with training in oxygen requirements, medication use, breathing treatment and exercises for healthy lungs and energy conservation.
