In life, there are unfortunate events that may happen.  You may be involved in a car accident, a slip and fall or you may injure your shoulder when you are playing softball with friends.

These injuries may be painful, require a visit to the doctor or even a surgery.  It’s not uncommon that after an injury some injury rehabilitation may be necessary.  This may require a physical therapist to evaluate the injury and treat the problem until you fully recover.

Although you may be in the position that you require some rehabilitation, the good news is that Maplewood of Sauk Prairie is available to provide you with the valuable therapy that you will need to get back on the road to recovery.

The therapists at Maplewood are trained and experienced to handle the many injuries that put people on the sidelines of life.  They treat conditions from simple sprains and strains, to more aggressive treatment such as post-surgical repairs or joint replacements.

Post injury treatment begins with a thorough evaluation that can be initiated by your doctor.  This initial testing assesses your current abilities such as your strength, flexibility, and range of motion.  This information provides the therapist and staff with the information that they need to correctly manage your injuries.

Based upon the evaluation and diagnosis you will be treated in the rehabilitation department which may consist of range of motion, strength training, flexibility or even balance training.  Your customized treatment program will be based upon your specific needs.

Your therapist will continue to monitor your progress and work with your doctors and care team.  Ongoing assessments will occur to determine how you are improving and what further steps may be necessary to improve your recovery.

Your doctor and the therapists will determine when you have reached maximum recovery and you will be released from care when this occurs.  At Maplewood, you will be part of the process and we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.

So, although injuries are never planned and certainly not wanted, you can receive the rehab care that you may need right here at Maplewood of Sauk Prairie.  We’d love to help and become part of your recovery team.
