Here when you need us most
Detroit Receiving Hospital is a 320-bed adult tertiary care facility specializing in trauma care and emergency medicine, and located on the central medical campus of the Detroit Medical Center.
Detroit Receiving Hospital's department of physical medicine and rehabilitation outpatient services provides physical and occupational therapy in a caring environment. Our experienced staff members deliver the highest quality of care, with kindness and respect, to help you regain a full range of activity.
Our therapists consult with your physician to ensure that the therapy program developed for you is consistent with your course of treatment.
Physical therapy is often prescribed after injury, illness or surgery, as part of a comprehensive recovery program. By focusing on specific exercises and movements to help increase your strength and mobility, physical therapy helps reduce the limiting effects of certain chronic conditions and recurring injuries.
Physical therapy may be right for you if you're experiencing:
- Difficulty walking
- Pain in the back, neck, arms or legs
- Difficulties with balance
- Muscle weakness
- Swelling in the arms and legs
- An open wound that is slow to heal
- Jaw pain when chewing
At Detroit Receiving, our physical therapy program is tailored to your individual needs. Our physical therapists will develop a program to help you maximize your physical capabilities, and provide you with a home exercise program that will enable you to advance at your own pace.
Physical therapy can help you:
- Increase strength and endurance
- Increase mobility (walking, getting in and out of bed)
- Improve posture
Occupational therapy helps increase independence and mobility by focusing on those tasks that may have contributed to an injury or chronic condition, resulting in pain or limited mobility.
Occupational therapy may be right for you if you're experiencing:
- Problems with self-care
- Difficulty with job duties, including pain or weakness
- Pain in the shoulder, arm, wrist or hand
- Difficulty in daily activity due to arthritis
Detroit Receiving's occupational therapists will evaluate your condition and assist you in modifying your workplace activities to help avoid repeated injuries. Our occupational therapists support you in the development of new self-care techniques, when necessary. They also can design a tailored home exercise program to help you make continued progress at your own pace.
Occupational therapy can help you:
- Strengthen and reduce pain in arms, wrists and hands
- Develop new task paths for daily activities, including dressing, bathing, meal preparation
- Learn more about joint protection
- Increase endurance
