After an injury is treated, or a joint replaced, people often need to strengthen damaged muscles, or regain stability before they can return to normal day-to-day activities. At Memorial, we offer people rehabilitation services during their stay at the hospital to help jump-start their recovery. Often times rehab treatment will continue even after a person has been medically discharged to aid in recovery. Memorial's Rehabilitation Services department cares for in-patients daily and also offers home based services for those that need it.
Memorial also offers out-patient rehabilitation services at The Springs Rehabilitation and Occupational Medicine , Memorial's Rehabilitation and Occupational Medicine.
The Springs houses Occupational Medicine and Physical, Occupational, and Massage Therapy services all under one roof. This multidisciplinary approach helps people meet their personal function goals while educating them on how to prevent further injury.
The Springs goal-oriented approach of helping people regain optimal function after an injury or illness, and teaching them how to prevent further injuries or conditions, returns people to their everyday activities feeling confident.
Our rehabilitation therapists help people recover physically and develop the skills needed to get back to their lives. The following rehab services are available at The Springs.
Physical Therapy uses physical agents such as electrical stimulation (E-stim) ultrasound, traction and heat or cold therapy to help improve muscular function after injury, illness or surgery. Common treatment goals are to improve mobility and strength and decrease pain. Areas of focus in treatment are working with neurological operations or balance, orthopaedics, post surgical motion, pulmonary strength and any other injury/illness that limits the person's function.
Occupational Therapy works to improve a person's ability to do the everyday activities (occupations) that are important to them. This may include improving fine motor control to enable self-care skills such as dressing, feeding, and bathing or developing the cognitive skills needed for more complex occupations such as cooking or driving. Occupational Therapy focuses on the "fit" between the individual, the occupation and the environment. By working to help people develop skills, learn new adaptive strategies, and/or modify the environment, OT enables them to function more fully in their environment.
Massage Therapy seeks to help decrease stress, muscle tension and pain while improving muscle mobility, making it easier for individuals to function in daily activities. Our massage therapists can provide many types of massage ranging from a Swedish relaxation massage to deep tissue work. A doctor's prescription is required for insurance billing.
Our Key Areas of Focus include a number or neurological and musculoskeletal disorders.
