and occupational therapists at GAMC work closely with physicians
to develop personalized treatments that help patients regain
movement and independence after injury, surgery or illness.
Therapy sessions are available on both an inpatient and
outpatient basis. Exercises may include stretching, a workout on
advanced rehabilitation equipment, a visit to the therapeutic
pool and/or a wide variety of other activities.
Following discharge from the hospital, most patients receive a
home visit and subsequent follow-up by a therapist and social
worker, who evaluate the home environment and social support
network and make suggestions regarding modifications that can
make the home safer and more convenient as recovery continues.
For those individuals who cannot tolerate the physical demands of
traditional physical therapy,
aquatic physical therapy provides a great alternative. In the
comfort of our 60' x 40' pool, patients are led through an
individualized exercise program by specially trained clinicians.
Our physical and occupational therapists want to help you
enjoy the best quality of life possible. To learn more,
call (818) 409-8071.
