What to Expect

Your Rehabilitation

The number of physical therapy treatments will vary with the type and severity of the problem being treated. Generally, you will be given a home program to exercise during your therapy program, and after discharge from your physical therapy care.

The length of rehabilitation will also vary, this time depending on when therapy is initiated, the severity of symptoms, and your specific goals for rehabilitation. Therapy services are often coordinated with any ongoing medical treatment prescribed by your treating physician. A typical frequency may be one to three times per week and could last for several weeks or a few months in order to maximize progress and functional outcomes.

Our team of experienced doctors and therapists are able to develop personalized rehabilitation plans geared toward your needs. Let us develop the program for you, so that you can get back to doing what you love.
