- About Us
SAMC offers an intensive acute inpatient rehabilitation program to help patients regain independence to attain the goal of returning home. Inpatient rehabilitation requires the coordinated efforts of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists for patients receiving 24-hour coverage by clinical staff skilled in medical rehabilitation.
The inpatient rehab team helps each patient establish goals for more independent living including improved mobility, self-care and speech skills. Team conferences are held weekly to share progress, concerns and update treatment goals. In addition, patient and family/caregiver education is provided on an ongoing basis.
The Physical Therapy Department focuses on returning people to their daily work and leisure activities after an injury or surgery. Therapists are committed to doing a thorough evaluation on each person and treating the individual rather than the condition. A physical therapist will assess ROM, strength, muscle imbalance and joint restriction to help determine present levels or deficits. The evaluation will help the therapist determine the best treatment plan for the patient. In addition, patients receive instruction for home exercise programs individually designed to help further their recovery and continue long term management.
As a continued commitment to our patients, we offer several new therapies – Anodyne Therapy and Balance Therapy.
Balance Therapy utilizes state-of-the-art equipment including a Biodex Isokinetic dynamometer, a Biodex Gait Trainer treadmill and the Biodex Balance System. This equipment objectively assesses and trains both gait and balance. They are great tools for our therapists to provide our patients the best care possible.
