Physical Therapy

A physical therapist will provide rehabilitation services in the Care Suites area during your stay. With both an in-depth knowledge of the body’s ability to move and function, and a compassionate, inspiring can-do mentality, a physical therapist is an invaluable partner in your journey to maximizing your physical abilities after surgery. Together, you’ll establish goals, and your progress will be monitored closely.

Secure Tracks

The Care Suites are home to Secure Tracks, a specialty physical therapy device that allows you to start walking faster after surgery, prevents falls, and improves your natural gait. The innovative Secure Tracks is a ceiling-mounted monorail system with a support frame that allows you to stand upright, using your upper body for support. You then walk—fully supported and confidently able to adjust to your new joint. The Secure Tracks are used most often for significant hip, knee, and ankle surgeries.
