How can Orthopedic Rehab help? 

Orthopedic patients typically have a deficiency that needs to be addressed. Our rehabilitation teams can specifically target muscles to improve function and decrease problems. With knowledge on surgical procedures, treatment goals, and the musculoskeletal anatomy, our therapists can tailor their efforts to improve the well-being of the patient. After a procedure such as a hip replacement or ACL reconstruction, it is important that therapy is guided by the surgical procedure. Some surgery places limits on weight-bearing and range of motion; our therapy team works closely with the physicians to meet assigned limitations to ensure a successful outcome.
