Achieving the Impossible

Triangle
Amputation

Amputation

Our amputee rehabilitation program prepares patients and their families to cope physically and psychologically with the traumatic or surgical loss of a limb, or a congenital limb deficiency. The rehabilitation process begins postoperatively with a pre-prosthetic program that focuses on preparing the limb for a possible prosthesis. The goals of this phase of rehabilitation are (1) wound and pain management, (2) proper positioning and prevention of contractures, (3) building strength and endurance, and (4) learning the skills necessary to achieve maximum independence without a prosthesis.

The DHR Health Rehabilitation Hospital is one of the region’s only rehabilitation hospitals to offer treatment equipment such as the body weight support treadmill via Lite Gait, and NuStep Steppers to help individuals with limb loss regain motor strength and control. The Rehabilitation program at DHR Health is comprised of specialized highly trained professionals that work as an interdisciplinary team to help restore persons with an amputation to their highest potential.

Brain Injury

Brain Injury

We provide rehabilitation to individuals with brain injuries of all severity levels. We treat patients suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), non-traumatic brain injury, as well as brain injuries combined with spinal cord injury or multiple fractures and amputations. Patients benefit from a highly integrated and intense rehabilitation program that is tailored to their unique physical/functional limitations, cognitive impairments, and behavioral issues. Our patients travel from surrounding communities to undergo the aggressive brand of rehabilitation that can’t be found anywhere else in our area.

Major Multiple Trauma

Major Multiple Trauma

Trauma is a serious injury to the body. It is caused by a physical force, such as violence or an accident. The injury may be complicated by psychiatric, behavioral, and social factors. This can cause the disability to be greater than just physical injuries.

We offer a highly individualized and holistic approach in the rehabilitation of Major Multiple Traumas. Our goal is to return the patient to their highest level of physical, social, and emotional function. Patients and their families are essential members of the rehabilitation team and we encourage their active involvement throughout the rehabilitation process.

Neurological Disorders

Neurological Disorders

Through collaborative, integrated care and clinical expertise, we provide rehabilitation for a wide range of neurological disorders and neurodegenerative diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and more. Our therapists provide comprehensive assessment and management of disease effects at every stage of illness.

Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological rehabilitation helps improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve quality of life for people with diseases, trauma, or disorders of the nervous system. Depending on the person's unique situation, rehabilitation can be provided on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Rehabilitation focuses on movement patterns, strength, flexibility, functional ability and balance. Our team works closely with our other healthcare providers to tailor the treatment plan as you progress toward each goal. The goal of neurological rehabilitation is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible. We aim to meet your physical, emotional, and social needs to improve your quality of life.

Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic Rehabilitation, or orthopedic therapy, helps people develop, restore, and maintain movement and functional ability. We use manual therapy, exercise therapy, and movement and postural training, to achieve the highest level of function.

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

After surgery, people experience pain, swelling, loss of motion, and loss of strength. Our rehabilitation program guides people through the healing process, through a customized program designed to meet each person's needs and goals. A patient’s ability to regain motion, strength and ultimately return to their daily activities depends on physical therapy. The body will not regain normal motion without specific retraining. The physical therapists are specifically trained to restore range of motion and strength without compensation and to prevent re-injury during the recovery process. The therapist can also provide the patient with specific guidelines to allow optimal healing.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury is a devastating event, both physically and psychologically. In addition to possible paralysis and loss of sensation below the level of injury, a spinal cord injury also impacts many different bodily functions, including circulation, metabolism, temperature regulation, nutritional health, skin, respiration, bowel and bladder elimination, and sexuality. The complexity of spinal cord injuries requires highly specialized skills of a healthcare team trained to manage this kind of injury.

The DHR Health Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program is a person-centered program that utilizes an interdisciplinary team approach to address the unique rehabilitation needs of persons who have been diagnosed with spinal cord dysfunction. We treat both traumatic and non-traumatic spinal cord dysfunction using evidence-based practices to deliver services that address the preventive, restorative, supportive, and lifelong rehabilitation needs of the persons served. The interdisciplinary team focuses on the personal preferences, strengths, and needs of the persons served as well as their families/support systems.

Stroke

Stroke

Our stroke rehabilitation program is designed to maximize outcomes for individuals who have suffered a stroke. We provide specialized medical management, nursing and therapy services in a hospital setting. Individual therapy, group treatment and community outings address functional abilities.

The intent of the DHR Health Stroke Rehab Program is to provide intensive and comprehensive services designed to prevent or minimize chronic disabilities of persons with a primary diagnosis of stroke. The program aims to restore the person to optimal levels of physical, cognitive, social, and emotional functioning with the context of the person, family, and community.

But the care doesn’t stop there. We then provide our Stroke Rehab program to the person served and family through our continuum from inpatient rehabilitation through post-acute outpatient rehabilitation care. Additionally, Stroke Support Groups, counseling, education and individualized training also prepare families and caregivers for care after leaving the hospital.

Furry friends are also proven to help lower blood pressure, reduce awareness of pain, and help promote the release of endorphins that create feelings of peace and contentment.

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)

BFR is the application of a specialized tourniquet system to an arm or leg, which is inflated, to a personalized and specific pressure to reduce blood flow to an exercising extremity. This allows us to achieve significant improvements in muscle strength and size with very low loads of stress to the joint. BFR has extensive research that shows its effectiveness and safety. Professional sports organizations and advanced sports medicine facilities use BFR with positive results in conditions not limited to total joint replacements, achilles repairs, fractures, rotator cuff repairs, muscle strains, nerve injuries, post-operative conditions, tendinopathies and sports medicine injuries.

At the DHR Health Orthopedic and Sports Therapy Institute we provide a variety of treatment and physical exercises throughout the rehabilitation process to reduce pain, strengthen the injured area, and prevent future injury. Using evidence-based physical therapy, we balance current research and expert clinical experience to make patient care decisions. By doing so, we are able to develop unique treatment plans tailored to each individual patient.

Hand therapy treats orthopedic upper-extremity conditions of the hand and arm. Conditions seen by the occupational therapist trained in hand therapy include fractures of the hand or arm, lacerations and amputations, burns, and surgical repairs of tendons and nerves.
