The overall goal of Methodist Rehabilitation’s orthopedic program is to prepare the patient for transitioning back to home and into the community. Accordingly, a number of objectives are established based on the patient’s individual needs. These might include:
The rehabilitation team closely monitors a number of areas of concern for orthopedic injuries, including proper skin care for the surgery site. For orthopedic operations that require substantial range of motion therapy, such as knee replacement rehabilitation or hip replacement rehab, the team works to strengthen the surrounding muscles to improve movement and stability, and addresses ambulatory and lifestyle issues affected by the injury or surgery based on the patient’s individual needs. Patients—and their families—are taught how to compensate for the injury and also shown ways to attain maximum independence by managing the activities of daily life.
