Whether recovering from a joint replacement, a torn ligament or other orthopedic injury, rehabilitation is vital to a surgery's success. While the goal of surgery is to repair the problem, the goal of orthopedic rehabilitation is to optimize recovery and regain quality of life.
Located on the OLBH campus, the Human Motion Vitality Center is the Ashland area's only hospital-based rehab center, offering the Tri-State a variety of specialized programs in a medically supervised atmosphere to aid in health maintenance and rehabilitation. The center's rehabilitation specialists, physical and occupational therapists, exercise physiologists and experienced nurses can assist you in beginning a regime of exercise and aquatics after your orthopedic surgery. The facility also is the site for the hospital’s outpatient pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation programs.
After an injury, physical therapy can be difficult and painful. To make traditional therapies less painful and beneficial, we offer warm-water pool therapy at the Human Motion Vitality Center. The water allows for early joint movement to be possible even if someone is experiencing pain. Water supports the body and reduces weight-bearing stress to joints so you can strengthen and tone muscles while your body heals.
The Human Motion Vitality Center features an indoor walking track, a variety of cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, rehabilitation-size pool and locker room facilities.
