When you’re recovering from an injury, surgery or a major health event, such as a stroke, you want to get back to your old self as quickly as possible. Trouble is, you may not feel like doing much. That’s where rehabilitation comes in. It combines exercise, pain control and lifestyle advice. A team of experts, such as your doctor, nurses and physical and occupational therapists, will help you push yourself to become more active and independent.
“Rehab can help you get back to your regular routine,” says Stephen Hyman, M.D., director of the inpatient rehab unit at Botsford Hospital. It can also help prevent complications. After a stroke, for example, working with a physical therapist can help keep your joints limber, so that when strength returns to your arms and legs, you’re good to go. Here are more ways rehab can help you recoup your quality of life:
A mom with multiple sclerosis is too weak to dance with her daughters. A writer with carpal tunnel has a tough time using a keyboard. A jazz singer loses her voice to chronic laryngitis. Each person has a different condition. Botsford Hospital can help them all. Botsford can boost your strength, balance, mobility, speech--and ultimately, your independence.
Do you have an injury, disability or pain? From breathing problems to stroke, Botsford has a rehabilitation program for you, with both inpatient and outpatient rehab. Botsford can also help with balance issues, heart problems, work- and sports-related injuries and arthritis. Licensed and certified staff works one-on-one to assist patients in meeting their personal goals.
Pain and disability don’t have to be permanent. If you are hurting or unable to do the things you love, let Botsford lend a hand.
