Physical Therapy

Rehabilitation works to regain functional ability after illness, injury or surgery.  The therapy staff at Broadwater Health Center will assess your current strengths and challenges to maximize your ability to return to your previous level of activity in vocation and leisure.  After assessment, the staff will develop an individualized plan to meet your goals.

Goals are developed together with the patient and family input to achieve the highest possible results.  Proven techniques to reduce pain, improve joint movement, increase strength, improve balance, enhance daily self-care, optimize communication and oral function with the most appropriate assistive devices will be implemented.

INSURANCE / TREATMENT

Most outpatient rehabilitation therapy is covered by Medicare Part B and other insurances.  Typically, after a medical provider orders rehabilitation therapy, appointments will be set up two to three times per week initially, or at the discretion of the medical provider.

Frequency and duration of therapy is determined by the continued need of the patient.  The patient and family are encouraged to participate in ongoing planning for treatments.
