Rehabilitation is often necessary when a person has had surgery, or experiences a severe injury or disability. It is designed to provide the patient the resources he or she needs to achieve maximum functionality.
The Rehabilitation Services department at Sentara Albemarle Medical Center is staffed by a specially trained team of professionals, who are dedicated to maximizing your level of independence and ability to carry out normal, everyday tasks. Whether you are treated on an inpatient or outpatient basis, our goal is to help you improve movement, gain strength, increase independence, relieve pain, improve swallowing safety and restore impaired communication skills.
Following a referral from your physician, you will receive a complete evaluation by the appropriate licensed professional. A treatment program will then be designed to meet your individual needs. Whether you are recovering from an illness, injury or surgery, our rehabilitation professionals are dedicated to provide you the best possible care.
