Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Whether you have suffered an injury at work or on the field, are recovering from orthopedic surgery or just want to better manage pain, CHI Saint Joseph Health can help.

We offer medically supervised orthopedic rehabilitation programs, led by physical and occupational therapists who provide care on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Working closely with you and your physician, your rehabilitation team will design a tailor-made treatment plan to help relieve pain and restore strength, function and mobility. We also place special focus on education, arming you with strategies to help keep pain in check and prevent re-injury.

Personalized Programs to Get You Moving Again

Our specialties include:

  • Physical Therapy: We provide comprehensive exercise and strength and conditioning therapies for orthopedic trauma, severe arthritis and other bone and joint injuries. The team also includes specialized spine therapists, who use manual techniques to relieve the symptoms of neck and back pain, as well as therapeutic exercise to address posture, range of motion, flexibility, strength and coordination issues contributing to the spine problem.
  • Occupational Therapy: We’ll help you regain the ability to perform daily activities following an injury; home living situations are simulated for activities such as bathing, grooming, meal planning and housekeeping. Along the way, your therapist will provide progress assessments and make any adjustments to maximize your success.
  • Post-Operative Therapy: When you’re hospitalized following joint replacement, spine surgery or another orthopedic procedure, we’ll be right there to support you. For joint procedures, recovery usually begins immediately after surgery in our dedicated orthopedic units, where a physical therapist can help you get up and moving. Once you go home, we’ll continue to work with you on an outpatient basis and communicate regularly with your surgeon to ensure you’re progressing well.
  • Sports Medicine: Kickstart your comeback from an athletic injury or repetitive motion disorder with our sports medicine specialists. Our specialized physicians, therapists and athletic trainers will design a customized rehabilitation plan to help you return to pre-injury form.
