Getting back to normal
Physical therapy uses exercise, massage and various other treatments to help you build strength and improve mobility after an accident, sports injury or surgery. Our physical therapists provide one-on-one attention and can work with you to create a personalized rehab plan so you can get back in shape as fast as possible.
What will my physical therapy be like?
On first glance, physical therapy can be intimidating. Following surgery, you’re pretty aware of your limitations, and physical therapy is designed to eliminate or reduce those limitations. That sounds painful.
Many patients visit us for rehab treatment after they’ve been discharged from the hospital, and our therapists work with them through one of our many outpatient programs. You may have severe migraines and need help making lifestyle changes to reduce them, or maybe you’re an athlete looking to rebuild strength and flexibility after a sports injury so you can get back on the field. No matter what your rehabilitation needs, our outpatient therapists can work with you on a personalized plan to help you lead a happier, healthier life.
Physical therapy at Hialeah Hospital is about setting goals, and walking with you every step of the way towards those goals. We’ll push you to work hard, but the goal is not pain – it’s healing.
If something hurts, don’t hesitate to tell your therapist. A good outcome in physical therapy depends on open and honest conversation between the patient and the therapist.
