Inpatient Physical Therapy

Patient-Centered Rehabilitative Care

Inpatient physical therapy is standard for patients who need help improving flexibility, range of motion, managing pain while in the hospital. Likely candidates for inpatient physical therapy are those who have been recently affected by a stroke, traumatic injury, or post-operative patients, especially orthopedic surgery patients. Our physical therapy team will work with you and develop a treatment plan until you are ready to be discharged. The goal of inpatient physical therapy is to help patients achieve maximum independence in their daily lives and safety in mobility. During physical therapy, you can expect significant improvement in your strength, endurance, and comfort level.

Remember that you are the most essential piece of the puzzle in your physical therapy regimen. While your rehabilitation team will give you the tools you need, it is up to you to utilize them as directed to aid in your own recovery.
