Orthopedic program

Restoring movement

SSM Health Day Institute’s orthopedic program is designed for individuals who have undergone joint replacement or spine surgery or experienced a musculoskeletal injury from bone or multiple medical trauma. 

Our specially trained team wants you to have the strength and function to achieve your goals. You will benefit from the combined knowledge and intervention of both physical and occupational therapies to help you improve.

  • Physical therapy treatment focuses on: core and lower extremity strengthening and range of motion, gait and transfer, balance and endurance training, pain management and wheelchair mobility, as appropriate.
  • Occupational therapy focuses on: upper extremity range of motion, strengthening and coordination, pain management, conditioning, energy conservation/work simplification, adaptive strategies for daily activities, home/work modifications and return to driving skills.
  • Depending on individual needs and goals, our team can assist with the coordination of assistive equipment and technologies, orthotic services or vocational rehabilitation services.
