Orthopedic problems generally respond well to rehabilitation. And, rehabilitation helps people get back to work and other community activities. Outpatient rehabilitation is almost always appropriate after a bone break, torn ligament, cartilage damage or orthopedic surgery.
Recovery varies depending on many factors. The extent of a person’s condition, age, health and activity all play a role. But in every case, HealthSouth is equipped to deliver a custom therapy plan that takes all factors into account. The goal is always maximizing function and independence.
With the right treatment and careful rehabilitation planning, a return to full activity is sometimes possible – including athletic competition after a sports injury.
