Physical Medicine Program (Rehabilitation Services)
Customized Therapy Programs for Injury & Illness Recovery
Redlands Community Hospital’s Physical Medicine Program is designed
to help our patients recover from debilitating injuries and illnesses.
The body undergoes great physical strain when suffering from a severe
medical condition, and sometimes your care needs to continue even after
your discharge from the hospital. In rehabilitation, specially trained
therapists assess your condition and design personalized treatment plans
to aid in your recovery.
In physical therapy, you and your care team will work to restore body functions
and increase your level of independence. Our physical therapists are trained
to work with patients of all ages, from infants to seniors. During the
program, your therapists will continuously evaluate your progress and
make adjustments to the treatment as necessary.
You may benefit from physical therapy if you have ever dealt with:
- Muscle tone abnormality
- Cerebral Palsy
- Chronic pains
- Post-surgical aches
- Joint pain
- Severe injury that impaired function
Occupational therapy is similar to physical therapy, except the program
is more focused on helping you perform specific functions. Depending on
the severity of your condition, your occupational therapist may help you
work on getting dressed by yourself, holding utensils, and climbing into
the shower. Whatever aspects of your life you feel have been most affected
by your condition, these are what your occupational therapist can help you with.
Whether it is the result of a stroke, neurological condition, or genetic
condition, there are several disorders that can make it difficult to communicate.
A speech therapist develops unique treatment plans that help patients
learn or regain their ability to speak through oral exercises and speech
practices. Our speech therapy team is qualified to help patients of all
ages, including children, adolescents and adults.
After suffering a heart attack or cardiac event, you will need to make
some lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of another attack. Starting
a new, extreme exercise routine after one of these events can put a lot
of strain on your heart, which is why we offer a supervised cardiac rehabilitation
program. In this program, a trained physical therapist will create a safe,
well-paced exercise routine and diet designed to improve heart function
and blood flow.
Our rehabilitation programs operate between 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays
through Fridays. Limited weekend and holiday visits may be available.
