Our short-stay Orthopedic rehabilitation program offers specific therapy and medical assistance as part of recovery from an ortho-related surgery, trauma, disorder, or hospitalization.
Our specialized orthopedic rehabilitation program consists of a short length of stay and a one-on-one treatment plan for each person. Regardless of whether surgery is performed, there are many different possible musculoskeletal (orthopedic) ailments which may require rehab.
Common surgeries requiring short-term skilled rehab include:
- Total knee replacement - TKR
- Total hip replacement - THR
- ORIF surgery
Our highly qualified rehab professionals are constantly being educated in the newest advances of rehabilitative therapy to provide the best possible care. They are able to recognize and address the unique phases of rehabilitation that ortho patients require due to limited range of motion, decreased strength, and the need to initially control joint effusion and inflammation. We have teamed with Accelerated Care Plus (ACP) to provide ultrasound and electrical stimulation treatment for muscle re-education and improved management of pain and swelling. The interdisciplinary team works with the patient and the patient’s representatives to provide the care and services necessary for he/she to attain their highest functional level of independence. Our goal is to help restore range of motion, strength and function while ultimately having proven successful outcomes.
At Hanover Hill, we maintain a full-time in-house therapy department ensuring consistency and stability in the patient’s plan of care. Patient’s may receive 1-3 hours of therapy per day for up to 7 days a week, as indicated by their physician. Many of our residents have been able to have a fast, safe recovery thanks to our updated equipment, modern technology and personalized care from staff.
