The goal of the Cardiac Rehabilitation program is to provide cardiac patients with the education, experience and practical knowledge to return to full productive lives. This includes targeted exercise programming designed to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.  Our program includes monitored, personalized exercise classes, and educational experiences to help the patient control their disease and make the necessary changes to reduce the chances of repeat events.

What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?

  • An individualized and personalized treatment plan, including evaluation and instruction on physical activity, nutrition, stress management, and other health related areas.
  • An important part of the treatment of your specific heart problem. If you have one of the following diagnoses, you may be eligible to participate:
    • Heart attack
    • Angina
    • Coronary artery angioplasty or stents
    • Open heart surgery such as coronary bypass or valve surgery
    • Heart failure

Inpatient Rehab

While you are in the hospital for an illness or surgery, it may become necessary to receive physical, occupational or speech therapy services.

Or it can be the debilitating effects of prolonged illness or recovery from surgery that necessitate assistance from a rehab professional. For whatever reason, you will be well cared for by our experienced team of occupational therapists, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and speech-language pathologists.

Therapy programs focus on improvement of strength, endurance, flexibility, motor control and stability to support the return to normal functional activities.

Joint Replacement Program (Joint Express)


The joint replacement program is a treatment approach that combines pre-operative education, personalized pain management and advanced therapy techniques. Compared to traditional hip and knee replacement rehabilitation, the program gets patients moving sooner and shortens recovery time. One of the special features that makes the program so successful is the dedicated physical and occupational therapy professionals and nursing staff. Consistent communication and coordination of care between therapy and nursing staff results in better pain management and a quicker recovery.

Rehab Goal:

Work with patients and their families to provide the highest level of independence following total joint replacement surgery. This includes mobility, self care, and safe return to home.

The program is designed to provide acute therapy care to patients who have had a

  • Total Knee Replacement/Arthroplasty
  • Total Hip Replacement/Arthroplasty

The program consists of:

  • Physical and Occupational Therapy in both an individual and group setting.
  • A"Total Joint Protocol" is used which is approved by your Orthopedic Surgeon
  • Emphasis is on mobility so the patient spends less time in the hospital bed, and more time doing functional activity.
  • Individual and group therapy is used to increase motivation, help develop a more positive attitude, and speed progress.

Rehab Services

Rehabilitative Services plays a vital role in the program. PT and OT offer a combination of individual and group therapy in order to increase motivation, help the patients develop a more positive attitude and speed the recovery process.

A typical patient would receive the following Rehabilitative Services treatment plan:

Prior to Surgery:

Several weeks prior to surgery, the patient is invited to attend an educational class taught by physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, and case management.

Post Surgery:

Following your total joint replacement, you can expect:

  • Individual bedside physical therapy and occupational therapy evaluations.
  • Therapeutic exercise to increase your range of motion and strength.
  • Transfer training (getting in and out of bed safely and getting in and out of the chair)
  • Ambulation (walking) training to help you walk safely and improve how far you can walk..
  • Self Care Activities such as bathing, dressing and grooming.
  • Joint Express "group" therapy with physical therapy and occupational therapy for arm and leg strengthening and range of motion.
  • Encourage"coach" participation in therapy (A coach is a family member or friend who will assist you when you go home).

Benefits of Group Therapy:

  • Motivates patients to try harder
  • Patients can support / encourage each other
  • It is more fun and social

Overall, the program has been very successful in decreasing the length of stay for joint replacement patients by helping them become more functionally independent sooner. It provides better pain management and has produced increased positive customer feedback.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine. The problem afflicts millions of adults in the United States, 85% of them being women. Men may experience a loss of bladder control as a result of prostate enlargement and the treatment of prostate cancer. Women experience incontinence more often than men as a result of pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, and the structure of the female urinary tract. Among women, the problem is most commonly associated with a specific condition called stress urinary incontinence.

Different types of incontinence?

  • Stress Incontinence – is involuntary loss of urine during physical movement (coughing, sneezing, exercising, laughing, lifting). In describing this condition the word "stress" does not refer to emotional stress, but the stress of increased physical pressure on the bladder.
  • Urge Incontinence – is often referred to as "overactive bladder". It is the leakage of large amounts of urine at unexpected times, including during sleep. Those with urge incontinence feel a strong uncontrollable need to urinate. They may also feel the need to urinate often.
  • Overflow Incontinence – is unexpected leakage of small amounts of urine because of a full bladder. The bladder may also never feel completely empty.
  • Mixed Incontinence – is defined as having more than one type of incontinence occur at the same time, usually the occurrence of stress and urge incontinence together.
  • Transient Incontinence – is the leakage that occurs temporarily because of a condition that will pass (infection, medication).

It is fairly common for both men and women of all ages to be affected by some form of urinary incontinence. Urination is a fairly complex function of various muscles and nerves. Therefore, it is not uncommon for a disruption in normal bladder control to occur.

There is Hope:

Incontinence is not a disease, but a symptom of an underlying condition that affects men and women of all ages and backgrounds.  Many people who suffer from incontinence isolate themselves for fear of ridicule and embarrassment.  It often seems difficulty to manage and many are mistaken that nothing can be done to correct it.  Admitting there is a problem may help individuals seek out treatment that can help them gain bladder control, renew their self-confidence and prevent social isolation.

How Therapy Can Help:

Our Physical Therapists that will use a conservative approach to helping you with incontinence.  We promote a self-help program of exercises and surface EMG, which is proven effective in helping many patients regain bladder control.
