Rehabilitation after illness or injury is a slow step-by-step process that aims to help you recover. As part of your recovery, you may start by getting care at a hospital. You may then move to outpatient treatment in the facility like ours. Outpatient Rehabilitation at NJPR will help you get moving again, regain your strength, relearn skills, or find new ways of doing things.
Depending on the nature or extent of your injury, your treatment may include physical therapy by one of our skilled therapists. They will help you get back muscle control and function. Or you may see an occupational therapist who can help you relearn how to go about your daily life. You might need other specialists, depending on your situation. One of our physiatrists may help plan and evaluate your rehab. A physiatrist is a medical doctor who is a rehab expert.
Outpatient Rehabilitation After an Illness
You will often need outpatient rehab if you have an injury or illness. In these cases, your treatment could start in the hospital. When you start to get better, you will likely change to a program of Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy at an Outpatient Facility like NJPR. You may also have supervised Conditioning Exercises, which we also offer in our facility.
Some illnesses, such as stroke, may need a combination of rehab programs. You may also need a physical or occupational therapist to help you learn how to walk and go about your daily activities.
If you have a proper rehabilitation, the aim is to help you live as good and as painless life as possible.
