Orthopedic rehabilitation continues the process toward healing and recovery that begins with surgery. Highly skilled and certified rehabilitation professionals work closely with our orthopedic surgeons to design a personalized program that gets patients back to the activities they love the most as quickly as possible.
Whether it's playing tennis or golf, taking part in vigorous sporting pursuits, gardening or simply taking a stroll, we work to meet each patient’ s individualized goals. The rehabilitation team at GAMC's Physical Medicine and Rehablitation guides patients toward a return to mobility, flexibility, strength and stamina. Our designated orthopedic therapy gym provides our patients with the equipment and privacy needed during their stay on the unit. The specially trained physical and occupational therapists work closely together to provide excellent therapy services, including:
- Pre-op classes for joint replacement patients
- Therapy on the same day of surgery
- Sitting program
- Individualized exercise program
- Walking activities, including stair training
- Self-care activities
- Recommendation of equipment for home use
- Recommendation for further therapies after discharge (including therapy provided at GAMC's Therapy & Wellness Center)
