Rehabilitation program helps local patients recover following surgeries, injuries, or other medical conditions.
SWEETWATER, Texas (May 29, 2013) – We often hear about physical therapy after people enter a program following an injury of sorts, especially sports-related. But did you know that physical therapy can also make a significant difference in your ability to get back to the things you used to do following certain surgeries or congenital conditions?
Physical therapy is an approach to rehabilitation that utilizes various forms of exercise and equipment which are specifically designed to assist people in regaining or improving their physical strength and motion.
Licensed therapists work individually with each patient and their physician to develop a personalized rehabilitation plan. Goals are outlined based on the patient’s condition and a program is carried out that focuses on meeting recovery goals.
Common after debilitating accidents or a surgical procedure, physical therapy works by restoring a patient’s ability to function by minimizing their physical impairment. Those who suffer from congenital or acquired conditions also have much to benefit from a physical therapy program.
Many common surgical procedures can be performed in Sweetwater without the travel time to larger cities.
SWEETWATER, Texas (June 2, 2013) – When it comes to surgery, the word itself can strike fear into the bravest among us. With all the regional healthcare options available, knowing where to go and whom to trust is an important decision.
At Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital (RPMH), a specialized medical and rehabilitation team is available to help develop a plan that makes local healthcare a convenient choice over the hassle of traveling to nearby cities for healthcare.
RPMH has advanced medical equipment and board-certified surgeons who understand your needs. Specialized surgeons can perform many common procedures that range from orthopedic surgery to gynecological and obstetrical procedures, laparoscopic surgery and general surgery, to name just a few.
Many procedures may be performed with endoscopes or laparoscopes, which enable the surgeon to view inside the body without having to make large incisions. The benefits of these techniques include shorter hospital stays and recovery times.
Many patients opt to delay having elective surgeries for various reasons, but doing so could prolong any pain or discomfort, or cause additional physical harm.
Talk with your doctor about choosing the best facility for your surgical procedure. For more information on RPMH and the hospital’s medical capabilities, visit www.rpmh.net or call 325-235-1701.
