Health South Rehab Hospital
I could write a volume of great reviews for this hospital. My husband was there in Jan. for 10 days, and my 92 y.o. father-in-law just recently for 2 wks. This hosp. was recommended to us for my husband by quite a few people who had experienced the great care that my loved ones rec'd. ALL of the staff, from the person at the front desk to the doctors in charge, were PLEASANT, SMILING, CARING, HELPFUL, etc., etc . They were always there for us. And the therapy experience was very healing. Most rehab facilities have just an hour or two of therapy/day...HealthSouth provided 3 hrs./day...some days more. I will recommend this hosp. at every opportunity.
Tips & Advices
At the first appointment with a physical therapist, Expect an overall assessment of your condition, which may include exercises to understand your range of motion, balance, and strength. Based on that information, the therapist can then design a regimen.
Physical therapists can work in a variety of environments. While many choose to work in a physical therapy clinic, others will operate out of hospitals and are also able to make house calls to help patients who need in-home assistance and rehabilitation.
Physical therapists can specialize in sports medicine, women's health, geriatric, neurologic, orthopedic​, pediatric, and cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions, among others.
See a physical therapist following a serious muscle or bone injury, especially if pain doesn't go away within a few days, is recurring and dull, or is frequent and sharp. Book an appointment if medication is not helping or if your doctor recommends it.
The majority of health insurance plans do include physical therapy treatment, but the amount covered and the co-pay for patients varies person-to-person. Medicare and workers’ compensation both cover physical therapy.
