Inpatient Physical Therapy

A serious health crisis, such as a stroke or injuries from a car accident, often require a long-term treatment regimen. The road to recovery is slow and gradual, but it can be accomplished with the help of skilled professionals who are dedicated to helping you regain functionality and independence. The capable team of physical therapists at Major Health Partners are here to provide the attentive, comprehensive care you need.

What is Physical Therapy?

Everyone’s experience with physical therapy is different. This is because every patient’s plan of care customized to address their unique needs. The goal of physical therapy is to help patients regain physical function and mobility so that they can live life to the fullest once again. This is accomplished through exercises and activities that help your body heal over time.

Physical therapy typically involves the following:

  • Regular assessments to see how far you’ve progressed and to ensure treatment is working
  • A personalized exercise routine that may involve weight lifting and cardio
  • Instruction on how to perform exercises and other activities on your own
  • Instruction on pain management techniques
  • Practice with medical equipment such as crutches and canes, if necessary

Getting Ready for Your Return Home

Our inpatient physical therapy program helps patients prepare for life at home. Patients are typically discharged from the hospital once they have obtained enough independence to safely live on their own. It is important to note that this does not necessarily mean you have fully recovered. You will need to continue your exercises at home and possibly continue your recovery through outpatient physical therapy. Our physical therapists will make sure you know exactly what you need to do to continue your recovery.
