Rehabilitation begins during your hospital stay. Our physical and occupational therapists
will get you out of bed and moving again the day after surgery to take
you through the stretches and exercises that will help you regain your
range of motion and resume normal activities as quickly as possible.
For postoperative orthopedic patients with complex conditions (orthopedic
trauma, bilateral joint replacement, etc.) who meet criteria for needing
a more intense rehabilitation, the General is equipped for therapy in
a more intimate inpatient setting.
Most patients find benefits from continuing therapy after they have left
the hospital. Our therapists will evaluate your progress over time, helping
you toward your goal every step of the way. You will likely spend at least
two days each week in therapy until your goals have been achieved.
