The orthopaedic rehab program is one of our most extensive programs at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital, part of Main Line Health. With a primary focus on helping patients build strength, mobility and endurance for a variety of orthopaedic conditions, including:
On the inpatient side, a typical orthopaedic rehab session starts with pain reduction before increasing to range of motion, strength, mobility, coordination and endurance. In addition to traditional physical and occupational therapy, our orthopaedic rehab team offers creative treatment options like horticulture therapy and pet therapy to help orthopaedic rehab patients make progress toward their therapy goals.
People who see us for inpatient care are encouraged to continue the healing process through our comprehensive outpatient programs. To find an outpatient orthopaedic rehab near you, we offer locations throughout Philadelphia.
