Physical Rehabilitation is administered to help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical therapy treatment aims to restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Patients that may require physical therapy include: accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fracture (bone)s, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.
The focus of our Physical Therapy Department is on strengthening our patients, so they "hold" their adjustments and get the maximum benefit from their treatment program. Our rehab department also works with patients to gain range of motion and assist with stretching exercise.
Every patient is given a customized home exercise regimen upon release from care. This helps maintain the improvement in their condition and minimizes recurrence of symptoms.
At Rutherford Spine And Wellness, our staff will restore strength, mobility, balance, endurance and function following injury, surgery and illness. All of our programs emphasize alleviating current dysfunction, pain or deficits. Our ultimate goal is providing patient and care givers with information regarding their injury process and preventing future problems. Our physical therapists are equipped with the knowledge and skills in the most current techniques and methodologies.
