Whether a surgical or non-surgical solution is the correct treatment choice, rehabilitation is an integral part of the recovery process. The OLBH Human Motion rehabilitation staff work to restore patient function as quickly and safely as possible.
Rehabilitation is more than applying a brace or specific technique. It is a comprehensive program designed not only to eliminate the deficits of an injury or musculoskeletal problem, but prevent it from returning. Rehabilitate means to restore to customary activity through education and therapy. Naturally, the kind of rehabilitation needed to achieve the goal of restoring normal activity and the time and effort it will take varies with the nature and severity of each patient's specific injury. What doesn't vary is the need for specialized, focused, comprehensive care, whether a patient is being treated for a one-time problem or for a long-term condition.
Human Motion at OLBH employs a variety of advanced techniques designed to restore normal strength, motion, flexibility and reduce pain as quickly and safely as possible. OLBH’s physicians and rehabilitation specialists devote their efforts toward achieving optimal function for every patient. OLBH specializes in the treatment of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders including pre-and post-operative care programs.
