Physical therapy and rehabilitation at Centennial Hospital
At Centennial Hospital, we understand that care doesn’t end when the surgery or procedure ends. Many patients require additional support to help them get back to living healthy, active lives. Our physical therapy and rehabilitation program offers convenient inpatient and outpatient services to support patients throughout recovery and beyond. We work collaboratively with other experts on your behalf to provide comprehensive, coordinated support.
Physical, occupational and speech therapy is
available seven days a week,
24 hours a day.
Our providers are skilled at providing cognitive evaluations for patients who are recovering from a neurological event (such as a stroke) or a head injury. The evaluation typically includes many short tests that assess attention, memory, reasoning and thinking. It is designed to discover subtle changes that cannot be seen on imaging tests.
After an injury or surgery, many patients find they have new temporary or permanent limits in performing everyday tasks and living independently. Our program provides support, education and tools for patients so they can better perform activities of daily living. We often provide support for self-care, fine motor skills, use of adaptive equipment, safety and home modifications and neuromuscular reeducation.
Outpatient therapy programs
Some patients may benefit from ongoing therapy after hospital discharge. We provide programs designed to meet these patient needs in a comfortable, convenient setting.
Our physical therapy program offers convenient access to experts who help patients restore and maintain function and movement lost due to a health condition, surgery or injury. Using medically supervised exercises, we manage and treat the musculoskeletal system, bones and joints. Exercises often include cardiovascular, strength and endurance training. We also provide manual therapy techniques.
Our speech language pathologists work with patients who have had an injury or condition that affects the ability to communicate or swallow. We provide bedside swallow evaluations as well as modified barium swallow studies [link to Centennial imaging page] to help create an accurate diagnosis. We also provide customized support for patients to help them relearn swallowing or communicating. We want patients to regain speech at the highest level and focus on fluency, articulation and voice quality.
Total joint pre-op class
When it comes to a joint replacement surgery, preparation is key. Experts have found that patients who are active participants in their care and recovery programs often have better outcomes. We provide a total joint pre-op class designed to educate and prepare patients for their upcoming surgeries. We will cover what to expect before and after your procedure as well as plans for your recovery and rehabilitation.
Our experts assist patients with acute, chronic or non-healing wounds using advanced techniques and procedures. We work as a team with case managers, diabetes educators and your physician to work toward healing and recovery.
