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
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.
