Physical & Occupational Therapy
After injury or illness, physical therapy and/or occupational therapy helps patients get back to work, play and their lives. Barstow Community Hospital’s team works to create programs that improve movement, balance, endurance and strength for patients, helping them move—onward, upward and forward.
Some of the most common reasons you might need to see a physical or occupational therapist include:
- Degenerative joint disease and rheumatic diseases which cause severe joint pain and disability
- Back or neck pain
- CVA (stroke) or TIA which has affected your coordination and your ability to move
- Following surgery to help you get up and moving again
- Severe flare-ups of neurological diseases such as MS and Parkinson’s
- After an orthopedic injury
- Vertigo and balance problems
Rehabilitation services are aimed at getting you back to your life as quickly as possible. Your physical or occupational therapist, along with the skilled physicians and nurses at Barstow Community Hospital, make it their mission to provide the care necessary to get you back on your feet.
