Physical & Occupational Therapy
Inpatient & Outpatient Rehabilitation Services
Rehabilitation services, such as physical therapy and occupational therapy, provide effective treatment for many orthopedic conditions and play an important part in injury prevention, nonsurgical treatment and post-op recovery. Our staff at Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute includes highly skilled and specially certified therapists who offer the following inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services (click on a topic below to learn more):
No physician referral is needed for physical therapy services. This allows for direct access to our team of therapists.
One-on-One Therapy Sessions
To provide highly attentive, personalized care, all our rehab therapy sessions are conducted one-on-one between the patient and the physical or occupational therapist. While some other hospitals and providers offer group sessions managed by physical therapy assistants (PTAs), certified occupational therapy assistants (COTAs) or athletic trainers, our team includes only fully licensed and registered therapists who work with patients individually to ensure the expert level of care every patient deserves.
Advanced Training & Certifications
Our rehab therapy team includes board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialists (OCS), and all our occupational therapists are Certified Hand Therapists (CHTs). Additionally, many of our physical and occupational therapists have advanced training and certifications in manual therapy, Astym® treatment, Kinesio Taping®, Sportsmetrics™ (a type of ACL injury prevention program), work conditioning and sports medicine.
We create a personalized treatment plan and home exercise program for every rehab therapy patient, taking into account your previous injuries, strengths and weaknesses to get you back to your daily activities as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our therapists will map out a plan to help you:
- Regain mobility
- Improve function and range of motion
- Increase strength
- Improve balance and coordination
- Prevent future injuries
- Relieve pain
The outpatient rehabilitation center at Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute is open Monday-Friday, 6:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. You do not need a physician referral to see one of our physical therapist (however, if you are already under the care of a physician, please obtain a referral prior to therapy).
