Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Doylestown Health offers comprehensive physical and occupational therapy services for patients with orthopedic conditions, or following joint replacement or orthopedic surgery. Our licensed therapists work closely with your doctor to ensure the smoothest recovery possible.

Candidates for Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic rehabilitation can help patients recover from a variety of conditions including:

Joint Replacement Therapy

Rehabilitation is an important part of recovery after a joint replacement. Your rehabilitation begins as soon as your surgery ends. Most patients are out of bed and cleared to begin rehabilitation on the day of surgery.

Our skilled therapists guide you through the entire recovery process. Most patients are discharged 2 to 3 days after surgery. Following your hospital stay, you may begin outpatient therapy where a therapist will ensure that you are progressing as expected.

About Our Program

Our orthopedic team begins planning for your recovery as soon as your surgery is scheduled. The orthopedic navigator helps patients schedule any necessary pre- and post-operative appointments. Patients attend a pre-operative class where they learn about their hospital stay, the rehabilitation process and how to return to an active lifestyle.

Our therapists develop a personalized care plan to meet the needs of each patient. Physical therapy provides patients with exercises to strengthen muscles, increase range of motion and regain mobility.

Occupational therapy helps patients return to activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, toilet and shower transfers, and homemaking activities.

Each patient is monitored throughout their care to ensure that the progression of treatment is enabling them to achieve the best functional outcome.

Insurance Information

Doylestown Health participates in most major insurance plans. Our staff will assist you with checking your insurance prior to your first appointment. A physician's prescription is required.
