Texas Orthopedics Honors National Rehabilitation Awareness Week

Rehabilitation is the final, and arguably most important, step in the recovery process following a serious injury or surgery. It is also a routine ritual for those with lifelong or newly diagnosed disabilities.

In honor of our patients who are currently undergoing rehabilitation, and the dedicated physical therapists working alongside them, Texas Orthopedics celebrates National Rehabilitation Awareness Week, September 20-26. 

This week is organized each year by the National Rehabilitation Awareness Foundation (NRAF) in order to educate people about the benefits and impact of rehabilitation and physical therapy. Additionally, the foundation aims to increase opportunities for the nearly 50 million Americans with disabilities while helping them live up to their fullest potential.

At Texas Orthopedics, formal rehabilitation, or physical therapy, is often prescribed to treat pain or restore mobility and function after surgery or an injury. Our highly trained therapist work closely with our doctors to develop personalized treatment plans and help patients return to their favorite activities as safely and efficiently as possible. Therapeutic exercises, modalities, special equipment, and manual techniques are all used to aid the rehabilitation process.

Thank you, PTs, for keeping our patients whole.
