Sometimes, the hardest part of recovery is just getting moving again.  Limitations in movement and the fear of pain can be daunting.  Patients need the best treatment plan to get them back on their feet quickly, safely and comfortably.

When a patient comes to Wayne County Nursing Home & Rehab Center for short-term rehabilitation, our Physical Therapists are ready to help improve mobility, increase physical stamina and increase independence.  This may range from wheelchair mobility to stair climbing.

Physical therapy exercises may include stretching, walking, core exercises and weight lifting, all with the goal of improving endurance, flexibility and strength.  Manual therapy and education, as well as heat, cold, hydrotherapy, ultrasound and electrical stimulation may also be used, depending on each patient’s plan of care. Our physical therapists provide skilled therapy services that vary from patient to patient, with an emphasis on patient participation and follow through.
