Rehabilitative Care

Recovery from an illness or injury is often easier to manage close to home.  That's why Herington Municipal Hospital has invested in providing a wide array of rehabilitation services locally.

The physical therapy department utilizes a number of different modalities to help patients regain strength, reduce pain, continue daily living activities and attain the highest level of function possible.  We also take pride in teaching families to aid patients during recovery.

Occupational therapy focuses on enabling patients to do the "day-to-day" activities that are important to them despite the impairments, activity limitation or other restrictions - whatever they may be.

When physical or cognitive deficits result in difficulty with communication or swallowing speech therapy can help.  Treatments can be specifically tailored to the nature and severity of the disorder.

A cardiac event is a life altering experience and the first step back should be through a physician-monitored program.  HMH's Cardiac REhabilitation program combines education and closely monitored exercise with the use of wireless telemetry to ensure patients get their lives back on track.
