The Ferris Hospital Rehabilitation Department has a specific rehabilitation program which, following the admission of a patient, establishes the objectives to be achieved with the subsequent exercise plan.
Cryotherapy, manual lymphatic drainage massage, passive and active mobilizations, isometrics and counter-resistance exercises, balance work and walking with walkers are some of the techniques used in the treatment of various injuries.
Once the patient has been assessed after admission, Ferrís Hospital’s rehabilitation staff sets the appropriate objectives and the corresponding exercises and treatment for reaching the same.
Patients usually arrive in wheelchairs or stretchers, and as such it is important to assess how much they are capable of doing for themselves. To do so, the patients’ active and passive movements are observed whilst they are on the stretcher, seeking out the groups of strong and weak muscles in the affected area.
From this point, intense rehabilitation is started in order to get regain lost functionality:
Counter-resistance exercises for all strong muscle groups
Counter-resistance exercises for all weak muscle groups
Counter-resistance exercises for hand muscles
Counter-resistance gait work using a walker
Balance and proprioception exercises in parallel bars to help the patient recognize their movements
