"Rehabilitative exercise and manipulation, together with pain management and orthopaedic surgeon care, provide the full complement of procedures for patient recovery from disease and injury."
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
The Orthopaedic and Spine Institute's (OSI) Center for Orthopedic Rehabilitative Exercise is a physician driven outpatient rehabilitation center that is a direct extension of OSI. The mission at OSI Orthopedic Rehabilitation is to restore the patient to the highest level of function after a surgery or injury, by providing the best comprehensive medical care under one roof.
OSI accomplished this through purposefully and efficiently utilizing a multidisciplinary approach. Their in-house rehabilitation is supervised by Texas licensed doctors so that every aspect of the patient's treatment is monitored and adapted appropriately. Further, OSI's ancillary team of specialists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, pain management doctors, and nurse practitioners, are always on call. This allows the rehab center to successfully treat a long list of surgical and nonsurgical problems for the comfort and convenience of the patient.
Instead of a second opinion, every patient gets the benefit of third and fourth opinion as each OSI Orthopedic Rehabilitation team member contributes to the total patient experience, from initial examination through comprehensive rehabilitation. This facilitates functional improvement and allows patients to return to work and chosen activities as soon as possible. At the Center for Orthopedic Rehabilitative Exercise, the team of specialists and providers are wholly committed to the preservation and enhancement of each patient's health. Services include, but are not limited to:
-Pre and Post Surgical Rehabilitation Services
-Post injury rehab and exercise
