Rehab Services/Physical Therapy can help patients by assisting in the recovery
from an injury and avoid future injury by reducing pain in the soft tissues(muscles,
tendons and ligaments), improving flexibility and function, and building
the muscle strength. RGH Physical Therapists can also evaluate how you
do an activity and make suggestions for doing the activity in a way that
is less likely to result in an injury. Example: Back pain or a Meniscus
tear. Physical therapy can help you live more easily with chronic or ongoing
health conditions. Example: Spinal stenosis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's
disease, and Vertigo.
The Cardiopulmonary Department will offer screenings for Obstructive and
Restrictive Lung Disease, Saturation Studies and information in the areas
of COPD, Asthma, Heart Disease, and Smoking Cessation.
