Physical Therapy Is a Key Ingredient to Regaining Strength and Endurance
Hamlin Place Physical Therapists are state licensed certified healthcare professionals working in conjunction with our Orthopedic Surgical Consultant and attending physicians, to treat various functional impairments and disabilities. Their important role is to help patients increase muscle strength, flexibility, improve balance, stamina, and functional endurance, all of which are intended to maximize individuals’ progress towards independence, as you return to your prior level of function with increased safety.
At Hamlin Place, we are extremely proud of our experienced and dedicated PT team of therapists and their assistants. You will undoubtedly come to find that they are the real stars of your rehab, your daily partners on the road to your recovery. They continue to achieve an amazing success rate with patients, as they guide you step by step, often starting with individuals needing maximum two person assistance with transfers, progressing to requiring only limited help, and finally to ambulating and transferring independently.
Of course, much of your progress depends on the continuous efforts and hard work you put into the process, but you will be truly amazed at how far you can go forward working together. The Physical Therapy team knows that no rehab plan is the same, as every patient arrives in their own particular condition, To avoid recurrences of injuries, accidents, falls, and unnecessary re-hospitalization, the average therapy plan time frame that your attending physician intends for you to complete is approximately 6 weeks.
Although you may arrive here from the hospital on a stretcher, don’t be surprised when they may just have you dancing out our main entrance on your discharge day to go home.
