Outpatient Rehabilitation Services
Once you return home after your joint surgery, you may choose to continue your rehabilitation in Newton-Wellesley’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Services Department. The Department is conveniently located in the Main Hospital directly above the Main Lobby on 2 West. Valet services are available at the Main Entrance and there is parking in the Visitor Parking Garage.
Our physical and occupational therapists are experienced in treating patients with functional limitations following surgery. Many of our therapists have specialty certifications and more than 15 years of experience in orthopedic rehabilitation. They are highly skilled in all areas of post-operative care and will create your therapy program to best meet your needs. By choosing Newton- Wellesley Hospital for your outpatient therapy, you ensure a good continuity of care from the time of your preoperative visits through meeting your rehabilitation goals.
Outpatient services include:
- Physical Therapy
Members of the Physical Therapy staff work with you to decrease pain and swelling, and help you regain range of motion, strength, balance and mobility. The primary focus is to assist you in recovery from surgery and regaining functional independence.
- Occupational Therapy
The Occupational Therapy staff can help you to better perform important activities of daily living including self-care, homemaking, work and leisure. Therapy might include teaching you ways to conserve energy and use good body mechanics, recommendations for adaptive equipment and suggestions to improve your ability to safely function at home and in the community.
An appointment for physical and/or occupational therapy can be scheduled by calling the Department of Rehabilitation Services at 617-243-6172 Monday through Friday between 7:00 am and 8:00 pm.
