Rehabilitation is more than applying a brace or specific technique. It is a comprehensive program designed not only to eliminate the deficits of an injury or musculoskeletal problem, but prevent it from returning.
Rehabilitate means to restore to customary activity through education and therapy. Naturally, the kind of rehabilitation needed to achieve the goal of restoring normal activity and the time and effort it will take varies with the nature and severity of each patient's specific injury. What doesn't vary is the need for specialized, focused, comprehensive care, whether a patient is being treated for a one-time problem or for a long-term condition.
Our rehabilitation staff is part of the larger Orthopedic & Spine Specialists team, all working together to restore function as quickly and safely as possible.
We employ a variety of advanced techniques designed to restore normal strength, motion, flexibility and reduce pain as quickly and safely as possible. The physicians and rehabilitation specialists included in the physical medicine and rehabilitation division of McLeod Orthopedic & Spine Specialists devote their efforts toward achieving optimal function for every patient. We specialize in the treatment of neurologic and musculoskeletal disorders including pre-and post-operative care programs.
Since each patient's injury is unique and requires individualized assessment and treatment, within McLeod Human Motion Specialists' continuum of care, rehabilitation plays an extensive role. We work with each patient's physician[s] to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each of our patients.
