Physical therapy at CCH involves treatment to restore muscular strength, coordination, and balance, and improve range of motion.
Physical therapy also is used to help reduce pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, and joint stiffness. Emphasis is placed on patient education, proper body mechanics, and independent exercise programs to maximize effectiveness and prevent recurrence of injury.
The main focus of occupational therapy is to enable the patient to relearn basic motor or cognitive skills needed to perform everyday living tasks.
These independent living skills include eating, dressing, cooking, bathing, homemaking, and community skills. Occupational Therapy is an essential element of the patient’s recovery process. It enables individuals to increase their independence.
Offering a continuum of care is vital to our patients. Our licensed staff sees patients preoperatively, during the acute hospitalization, and as outpatients. Once a person is ready for discharge, we encourage ongoing participation in your home exercise program. Returning to your maximum ability is the main goal of CCH Rehabilitation Services.
