Patients who require long term care following a traumatic injury, debilitating
disease or life-altering surgery may require specific therapies to help
them heal before returning home. Acute Rehabilitation encompasses a variety
of physical and mental therapies to target your specific needs. During
this intermediary recovery time before returning home, you can receive
these therapies as an inpatient in the hospital setting.
Our acute rehabilitation team offers a comprehensive range of therapies
to meet your needs, including:
Physical therapy: Depending on your condition and its severity, physical therapy can increase
physical limitations, such as mobility, balance, coordination, strength
and range of motion.
Speech therapy: Commonly utilized following stoke and other brain injuries, speech therapy
can help patients relearn how to speak and swallow after the neural pathways
that control those functions have been damaged. They also assist patients
with memory loss, sensory loss and visual and perception problems may
benefit from cognitive therapy.
Occupational therapy: A combination of physical and cognitive therapy, occupational therapy
encourages patients to perform daily-life activities and skills to aid
in rehabilitation and preparation for your return home.
