Inpatient Physical Therapy
Improving Your Function to Improve Your Lifestyle

The goal of physical therapy is to improve the patient’s functional ability to a level that will allow for the most productive lifestyle.
The inpatient physical therapy staff at Newman Regional Health provides post-surgical care for total joint replacement and hip fractures; rehabilitation following stroke, debilitating disease, or illness; and wound care for patients with amputations in the Wound Care Clinic.
Generally, physical therapy involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of “movement dysfunctions”. Physical Therapists examine patients and develop treatment plans that employ techniques that promote mobility, pain reduction, functional restoration, and disability prevention.
>We strive to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
A typical inpatient treatment session lasts about 45 minutes but is tailored to each patient and their level of progress.

  • Balance retraining and vestibular rehabilitation
