Orthopedic Program

Rehabilitation following orthopedic surgery or major multiple trauma is a challenging and demanding experience. Our orthopedic program provides specialized rehabilitation care and treatment for patients who have undergone total joint replacements or spinal surgery, sustained a hip fracture, or suffered a multiple orthopedic trauma.

Orthopedic conditions can leave patients with limited movement in their joints, loss of strength, and significant pain resulting in the inability to perform their self-care activities and daily routine.

Our program helps you set and achieve goals to maximize functional recovery so you can return to the highest possible level of independence and function. A combination of traditional and advanced treatment options are individually prescribed and delivered to every patient.
