About Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Orthopedic rehabilitation includes any injury or condition that is affecting your muscles, bones, cartilage, joints, tendons or ligaments. That includes things like arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, broken bones, joint replacements, ACL tears and many more. Our experienced physical and occupational therapists bring advanced treatment to patients who have undergone joint replacement, experienced a musculoskeletal injury, sustained bone trauma or have been diagnosed with a degenerative joint disease.
Our Approach to Inpatient Treatment
At Baylor Scott & White Rehab, all of our patients receive the same level of service and care. However, we know some patients may require a little bit extra, and that’s why we base all treatment on your individual needs and abilities. During your time with us, you will be in close contact with your physiatrist and other rehabilitation team members, such as a care coordinator and a social worker, allowing them to closely monitor your progress and recovery. Your best interests are our best interests.
We provide advanced care for a wide range of orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions including hip fractures, joint replacements and multiple trauma injuries. Our multidisciplinary team helps patients to:
- Regain strength and mobility
- Increase function
- Utilize adaptive techniques and equipment
- Resume daily activities as safely and independently as possible
Common Inpatient Orthopedic Conditions
Multiple trauma patients usually have complex injuries and require a very specific type of care and treatment, as the recovery process can be slow and challenging. Baylor Rehab will provide you with an experienced rehabilitation team that will work to help you function independently – again.
As a joint replacement patient, you may require intensive nursing care. Your Baylor Rehab rehabilitation team will monitor your progress daily, as well as train and educate you on the necessary programs that will help you adjust to everyday life. Through physical and occupational therapy, we will help you regain the strength, mobility and confidence to get you back to where you were.
Although treatment goals and expected outcomes are typically the same for joint fracture as joint replacement, the length of stay is generally longer. Many factors play a role in this process, and that’s why your treatment team will be with you throughout the entire process, keeping you comfortable, fully aware of your progress, and on track for a successful discharge.
Our Approach to Outpatient Treatment
Nothing can slow you down like muscle or joint pain. Our outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation can help you overcome injuries or impairments affecting your muscles or skeletal system. Whether you have a broken bone, an ACL tear, a joint replacement or you’re just trying to get rid of stubborn back pain, we can help treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Our licensed therapists specialize in treating orthopedic injuries and will build an individualized plan around your needs so you can get back to your life as quickly as possible.
