REC PROGRAMS

General Orthopedics

Our General Orthopedic Program utilizes a blend of various manual therapy principles, modalities and exercises in order to assist patients in returning to their regular activities. Achieving maximum function at the earliest possible time is a primary goal.

Sports Medicine

Our Sports Medicine Program is designed to be sport specific and establishes the dual goal of restoring function and returning the athlete to competition as quickly as possible. Our sports medicine program benefits from a clinical staff that is Certified in Physical Therapy and Athletic Training.

Industrial Rehabilitation

Our Industrial Rehabilitation Program utilizes a thorough evaluation to help identify the present functional level of the injured worker. An individualized rehabilitation program utilizing exercises and work simulated activities is established to successfully return the patient to a level of physical and mental function for early return to work.

Spine

Our Spine Rehabilitation Program utilizes a thorough evaluation to establish a balance of hands-on treatment, modalities and exercise, lumbar stabilization and strengthening practices. Proper Back Education is a critical element of the program while the ultimate goal is to return the patient to their highest level of function and/or employment.

Vestibular and Concussion Rehabilitation

Our Vestibular and Concussion Rehabilitation is a type of therapy that focuses on improving the relationship between the inner ear, brain, eyes, muscles and nerves. This therapy is typically used with post-concussion patients and designed to reduce dizziness, headaches and imbalance and involves an individualized problem-oriented approach to promote compensation and brain adaptation 

Rheumatic Disease Programs

Rheumatic diseases are characterized by inflammation that affects the connecting or supporting structures of the body — most commonly the joints, but also sometimes the tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Some rheumatic diseases even affect the organs.  These diseases can ultimately cause loss of function in those body parts and Rehab Excellence Center Physical Therapists work to address these diagnoses, utilizing both the latest educational and clinical approaches to Rheumatic Disease management.  Below are 3 of the most common Rheumatic Disease conditions treated at Rehab Excellence Center

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Our Rheumatoid Arthritis Program addresses the cause of inflammation in the joints, resulting in increased joint pain and immobility, especially in the feet, ankles, wrists and fingers.  Physical Therapy and, specifically exercise, is a critical component in the management of Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms and a program is specifically tailored to  incorporate low impact strengthening exercises, cardiovascular conditioning, and flexibility exercises, focused on supporting healthy and efficient joints and musculature.

Fibromyalgia

Our Fibromyalgia Program focuses on the typical patient’s widespread musculoskeletal pain often accompanied with other symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and issues with sleep and mood. Evidence has identified Physical Therapy as a beneficial intervention to promote both short and long-term health benefits to help manage symptoms of Fibromyalgia and chronic pain. As a result, our goal is to design a personalized approach to management of each patient’s symptoms to promote improved strength, endurance, flexibility and to decrease pain to improve each individual’s quality of life. 

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Our Ankylosing Spondylitis Program addresses this unique
form of spinal arthritis, that eventually causes ankylosis (joint stiffening) of vertebral and sacro-iliac joints. Over time, it’s possible for some of the small bones in your spine (vertebrae) to fuse, making the spine less flexible and if the ribs are affected, it can be difficult to breathe deeply. In an effort to improve tissue mobility and decrease the defining pain and stiffness, a treatment plan is designed to include focused stretching, exercises, and hands-on physical therapy principles. 

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way physical therapists and patients view the treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. It is an innovative and patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

A Message To Our Customers,

Rehab Excellence Center’s Commitment to Patients and Safety

The world has been facing an unprecedented challenge with the COVID-19 Pandemic. Like you, we have been deeply concerned and want to do what we can to help keep our customers, communities and families safe and healthy.

Rehab Excellence Center takes the responsibility to our customers, our teams and our patients very seriously and we are working to make sure our customers have access to our quality care in the safest manner possible. 

After listening to the appropriate sources for accurate and up-to-date information, we have been taking sensible steps to make sure our preparedness plan reflects those inputs.  We will continue to monitor the situation and make any changes to ensure a high level of safety for our patients. 

What We’re Doing:

  • Providing physical therapy services in a small and controlled visit setting (Single Therapist Office) and typically just 1-3 patients in the room during the patient visit. Following social distancing guidelines is a requisite.

  • Equipping each REC facility with a Non-Contact Infrared Forehead Thermometer, providing fast and reliable body temperature measurement (1 second testing).

  • We are encouraging all of our patients to thoroughly clean their hands with either our alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water (and for 20 seconds or longer each time). Washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand-rub kills viruses that may be carried on the hands.

  • Our employees are also working diligently to ensure everyone is following our existing protocols for hand-washing, disinfecting and sanitizing equipment, treatment tables, waiting areas, bathrooms, door knobs, and other general areas.

  • Per the World Health Organization (WHO), we suggest patients stay home if they feel unwell and we can re-schedule their appointment for a later date. If they have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, we ask they call REC in advance and seek medical attention. Calling in advance will allow their health care provider to quickly direct them to the right health facility and better protect them and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.

We recognize this is a challenging time for all and we remain deeply committed to the safety of our customers, teams and communities.  Our patients and customers are the heart of our business and we thank you for your long-standing trust in Rehab Excellence Center, as we continue to navigate this uncertain period ahead.

Kind regards,

Rob Hicks
