Who needs inpatient physical therapy?

Inpatient physical therapy may be beneficial if:

  • You've been hurt. Whether you've been involved in a sports injury, an automobile accident or even a fall, physical therapy can treat these and other injuries, even after a broken bone has healed.
  • You've had surgery. Many surgical procedures can affect muscles, and you may need to rebuild them. Other surgeries can result in physical discomfort. Therapy can help you get stronger and move past the pain.
  • You've had a stroke. After a cerebrovascular accident (stroke), your muscles may not move the way they did before. A physical therapist can help you with range of motion and strengthening exercises and offer advice for doing everyday activities.
  • You have a spine condition. If you have back pain or a damaged spine, physical therapy can be helpful. Through stretches and adjustments, you may be able to take the pressure off the damaged nerves or muscles.
