About Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Clinic
When a patient undergoes surgery, experiences trauma, has a stroke or loses certain functions due to chronic conditions such as arthritis, they may find that a specialized treatment plan from an occupational therapist or physical therapist can help. USA Health offers therapy services on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
Physical therapy can help relieve a patient's pain or help a patient regain physical abilities and motor functions. Using specialized equipment and exercises, physical therapists (PTs) help patients learn to walk again, gain strength, improve flexibility and improve balance.
Occupational therapists (OTs) help people adapt to changes and limitations caused by illness or accidents. For example, OTs work with patients to improve cognitive abilities after a stroke. They also help patients learn how to perform typical daily activities such as dressing or getting in and out of an automobile when confined to a wheelchair.
