The focus of physical therapy is to decrease pain, increase range of motion, and improve strength following an injury or surgery affecting joints, muscles, or nerves, as well as regaining independence with mobility. The hospital offers both inpatient and outpatient physical therapy services. Inpatient services are provided to patients that are in need of a more extensive rehabilitation program in the swing bed rehabilitation unit. Our outpatient services are located in the CIC Professional Building on campus of HVCH.
Outpatient Rehabilitation Services
Following a comprehensive evaluation, licensed physical therapists carry out treatment protocols specified by your physician. In the gym, our team performs outpatient treatment for those recovering from accidents, injuries or medical procedures and for those living with medical conditions affecting joints, muscles and nerves.
After an initial evaluation, the therapist structures a personalized treatment program with your input to establish mutually acceptable treatment goals. The therapist regularly communicates your progress to your referring physician or specialist. Regular attendance of therapy appointments and compliance with your home exercise program deliver the best results.
