Physical Therapy

Jupiter Medical Center Orthopedic Rehabilitation Services provides a continuum of care from inpatient to outpatient to wellness for orthopedic patients recovering from surgery.

Pre-hab Strengthening Program

Research has proven that preoperative exercise programs can improve early return of function after orthopedic surgery. Jupiter Medical Center’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Services offers customized preoperative exercise programs designed to improve strength prior to scheduled surgery.

Inpatient Rehabilitation

Patients awaiting total joint replacement and neck or back surgery are offered the opportunity to attend an informative preoperative class to learn what to expect before, during and after their surgery. Patients have the opportunity to speak to representatives from nursing and rehabilitation and get answers to all their questions about the procedure. Following surgery, physical and occupational therapists provide comprehensive rehabilitation services that are individualized to meet each patient’s needs, with the goal of promoting faster recovery and greater independence in the home environment.

Outpatient Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is key to a successful recovery. With today's state-of-the-art equipment, rehabilitation can bring back quality of life. Jupiter Medical Center's Cary Grossman Health & Welleness Center offers patients a full range of rehabilitation services. Orthopedic rehabilitation offers services for adult patients with musculoskeletal problems resulting from arthritis of the hips, knees, shoulders and spine as well as patients who have undergone joint replacement or spine surgery.

Aquatic Therapy

The buoyancy of aquatic therapy offers significant benefits for spinal patients. It helps to counteract gravity, supports the weight of the patient, and takes pressure off the spine, while allowing for greater range of motion and reducing the level of pain that patients experience. The aquatic environment also provides resistance, allowing for strength and conditioning while decreasing risk of further injury.

Aquatic exercises help strengthen the back, abdominal, and hip muscles that help create a healthy spine. The pool is considered one of the best places to work on core strengthening, which is one of our main goals treating spinal patients. Aquatic therapy is offered at our Health and Rehabilitation Center on the Jupiter Medical Center campus.

Wellness Program

When you no longer require rehabilitative services, you have the option of continuing your exercise regimen by joining our post-therapy program located at Jupiter Medical Center's Health & Wellness Center.
