Orthopedic Rehabilitation 

As part of the Anderson Family Orthopedic & Spine Center of Excellence, Jupiter Medical Center’s Rehab and Wellness Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program provides a continuum of care from preoperative strengthening through postoperative wellness programs.

Rehabilitation is the key to a successful recovery. With today's state-of-the-art equipment, rehabilitation can help bring back quality of life and independence.

Our services include:

  • Prehab preoperative strengthening program
  • Preoperative education classes
  • Inpatient rehabilitation
  • Subacute rehabilitation
  • Outpatient rehabilitation
  • Back pain rehabilitation program
  • Wellness Programs including aquatic therapy

Prehab Strengthening Program:

Patients preparing for joint replacement surgery may be referred for prehospital joint replacement rehabilitation (prehab). Prehab is a proactive approach to prepare your muscles for surgery through physical and lifestyle changes designed to improve your postoperative recovery time. Studies have found that patients who participate in prehab before surgery recover faster than those who don’t.

Preoperative Education Classes:

Preoperative educational classes are held for patients scheduled for total joint replacement, neck or back surgery. Classes are given by our orthopedic vavigator and a member of the rehabilitation services team. You will learn what to expect before, during and after surgery.

Inpatient Rehabilitation:

Following surgery, patients will receive comprehensive rehabilitation from physical and occupational therapy. Therapy will be customized to meet our patients’ needs to promote a speedy recovery.

Subacute Rehabilitation:

Some patients may require additional rehabilitation before going home. The Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, conveniently located on the Jupiter Medical Center campus, offers subacute inpatient rehabilitation. Therapists utilize state-of-the-art equipment and a team approach to help patients reach the highest level of physical independence and return home.

Outpatient Rehabilitation:

Once patients return home, their physician may suggestion outpatient rehabilitation. With a physician's prescription, patients can receive a full range of rehabilitation therapy services at the Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center. Some services are available at satellite locations.

Back Pain Rehabilitation Program:

A nonsurgical option for back pain that does not resolve is our Rehabilitation Back program. This comprehensive program incorporates manual physical therapy in conjunction with education and a home exercise program designed to reduce and manage your back pain.

Wellness Services and Aquatic Therapy:

When patients no longer require rehabilitative services they can join our post therapy program. At the Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center, our exercise specialists will create a lifelong exercise program, specific to our patient’s orthopedic related needs, to help them achieve their personal fitness goals.

Join our highly skilled and specially trained therapists at the northern county’s only full size, indoor, heated pool equipped with a hydraulic lift and a variety of professional aquatic equipment to meet your physical and occupational therapy needs. We also offer Aquacise classes and Smooth Sailing for independent clients who want to exercise on their own.
