Working with your doctor, Bronson’s team of experts develop a treatment plan tailored for you. This plan is designed to return you to the highest possible level of functioning. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Our therapists are specially trained to explain the changes that have occurred as a result of your specific illness, injury or surgery. They will also explain what can be done to maximize the benefits of therapy.
Children sometimes need special help as they grow and develop. We offer physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services for pediatric patients from infancy through age 13. Our team has extensive experience in pediatric neurological and orthopedic rehabilitation. Therapy can help with physical, sensory, motor, speech, language, and cognitive and academic difficulties. We work with parents, doctors, educators, school therapists, and community resources to best meet the needs of each child.
Acute Care Rehabilitation Services
Bronson provides comprehensive services for adult and pediatric patients who need rehabilitation while they are still at the hospital. We provide specialized services for patients who have neurological conditions (including stroke rehabilitation) or who have had orthopedic procedures, such as total joint replacement surgery.
The typical length of stay (LOS) associated with total joint replacement surgery has dropped in recent years. At Bronson, the most frequent LOS for a single joint replacement procedure is now three days. We encourage most patients to get out of bed on the evening of their surgery day to speed up recovery and help them get back to their lives.
To support this shorter LOS, we offer therapy seven days a week. That means if you have surgery late in the week, you will have therapy over the weekend. Surgeons may recommend outpatient or home health therapy. Bronson offers both outpatient and home health therapy services.
Bronson's rehabilitation team consists of 33 therapists that have completed specialty certifications. These certifications include McKenzie, Lymphedema, Ola Grimsby, DSI Functional Capacity Assessments, Brain Injury Specialist and NDT to name a few. Our multidisciplinary team includes:
- Physical therapists
- Physical therapy assistants
- Occupational therapists
- Occupational therapy assistants
- Speech-language pathologists
Insurance coverage for rehabilitation services varies. Contact your health insurance provider to ask questions about your specific benefits.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is physical therapy?
Physical therapists treat a disease or condition with a physical means – stretching or exercise, for example. Physical therapy assists in reducing pain and allows a gradual return to activities after illness, injury or surgery. A physical therapist will design a personalized program based on your physical fitness and prior level of activity.
What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapists work with people of all ages who-because of illness, injury, developmental delays or other problems-need help with skills that will help them lead independent, productive lives. Occupational therapists can help with self-care, home skills, work skills, recreational activities and cognitive deficits.
What is speech-language pathology?
Speech-language pathologists provide treatments that help improve or correct communication or swallowing disorders.
