Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Clinic
Physician-led individual treatment program
If your illness or injury does not require hospitalization, but a rehabilitation physician is still needed - the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic can help. This rehabilitation therapy clinic is led by a physiatrist, a medical doctor with specialized training in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
In consultation with your personal physician, the physiatrist directs the overall plan of outpatient rehabilitation treatment along with the physical, occupational and speech therapists at Methodist Hospital.
Many conditions benefit from physiatrist-led treatment. Some of the diagnoses most frequently treated are:
- Brain Injury
- Multiple Trauma
- Neurological Conditions
- Orthopedic Conditions
- Pulmonary/Cardiac Disorders
- Spinal Cord Injury
Individual treatment plans
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians, in consultation with the out-patient rehabilitation team, help individualize your out-patient program.
Should you or a loved one have an amputation, we operate a specialized clinic creating an individual treatment plan for you. Amputation causes special challenges in regaining mobility and function. The Amputee Clinic team will provide you with evaluation, treatment and education regarding what to expect after an amputation, including fitting and training for the use of a prosthesis, wound prevention and pain control.
Referrals to the Methodist Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Clinic can be made through your physician, or for more information and self-referrals, call (402) 354-0707.
