Recovering from an injury or illness can be a frustrating experience. But it doesn’t have to be, and you don’t have to go it alone. When you’re ready to begin your recovery from an injury or surgery, the SVHC physical therapy team is ready to help.
At SVHC our team of therapists — the largest group in the area — is dedicated to helping you get back to the life you love as quickly as possible. They work with inpatients at the hospital, in Outpatient Rehab, and with patients and residents at the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation (CLR). Through a personalized therapy program, one-on-one care, and access to several rehab gyms, you’ll find all the motivation, guidance, and tools you need to start your recovery.
Eleven of 13 our physical therapists—85 percent—hold doctorates in their field and are accredited by the American Physical Therapy Association. Members of our team are certified in lymphedema management, functional movement screening, strength and conditioning, and kinesio taping.
Beginning with a comprehensive evaluation, we’ll develop a personalized program using manual therapy, movement re-education, assistive devices (including orthotics), and prescriptive exercise with the goal of restoring and maintaining your function and mobility.
At CLR, the physical therapists work seven days a week to address individual needs. Patients staying a short time to recover from an illness or injury set goals for improved strength, mobility, and range of motion. The goal is to achieve the independence needed to maintain an active lifestyle. Residents of the Long-Term Care unit of CLR often work on positioning, walking, using adaptive equipment, and maintaining quality of life.
Some of the injuries, pain, conditions, and post-surgical needs we provide care for include:
