Rehabilitation & Treatment

Rehabilitation & Treatment


Rehabilitation is care that can help you get back, keep, or improve abilities that you need for daily life. These abilities may be physical, mental, and/or cognitive (thinking and learning). You may have lost them because of a disease or injury, or as a side effect from a medical treatment.

Stroke

Stroke

A stroke is a medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. Both result in parts of the brain not functioning properly.
Hip & Knee Replacement

Hip & Knee Replacement

In cases where you need hip and knee replacement on the same leg, we usually operate on the hip first, or on the joint, that is more painful. On the other hand, if you have a painful hip after knee surgery, you may have trouble completing rehabilitation for your knee.
Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries occur during exercise or while participating in a sport. Children are particularly at risk for these types of injuries, but adults can get them, too.
You’re at risk for sports injuries if you:
-haven’t been regularly active
-don’t warm up properly before exercise
-play contact sports

Paralysis

Paralysis is the loss of muscle function in part of your body. It happens when something goes wrong with the way messages to pass between your brain and muscles. Paralysis can be complete or partial. It can occur on one or both sides of your body.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms vary among people and over time. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors. There may be problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing, and speaking.
Fracture Stiffness

Fracture Stiffness

specific stiffness is defined as the average applied stress divided by the average displacement across the fracture interface in excess of the displacement that would occur if the fracture were not present.
