Personalized Programs to Get You Back to Your Life
Rehabilitation specialties at Heartland Regional include:
- Physical Therapy: We provide comprehensive exercise and strength and conditioning therapies for severe arthritis, orthopedic trauma and other bone and joint injuries. The team also includes specialized spine therapists trained to help relieve neck and back pain.
- Occupational Therapy: Licensed therapists help you regain the ability to perform daily tasks and improve quality of life following an illness or injury. We simulate work stations, as well as home living situations for activities such as bathing, grooming, meal planning and housekeeping. Along the way, your therapist will provide progress assessments and make any adjustments to maximize your success.
- Pre- and Post-Operative Therapy: If you're scheduled for a procedure like joint replacement, our program is designed to make your recovery as swift and seamless as possible. Prior to the big day, your doctor may have you participate in “prehab”, with exercises designed to strengthen muscles around the joint. Following your procedure, you'll be seen by your therapist in the comfort of your private room. Though everyone's different, we'll work to get you up and moving the same day as surgery, and help you achieve your goals throughout your stay. During this time, we'll also evaluate you to determine if ongoing outpatient therapy and/or home health care is needed, and will coordinate all care.
