For recreational and professional athletes, NRH Regional Rehab offers a fully integrated, multidisciplinary approach to the recovery and maintenance of health and well-being. A team of medical specialists, including physicians, sports physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers is dedicated to helping you return to your desired level of activity as quickly and safely as possible.
A Unique Understanding of Our PatientsWhat separates NRH Regional Rehab from other medical facilities is our unique understanding of athletes and other physically active individuals, and the injuries they suffer. We appreciate the sense of urgency and high level of expectations our patients bring to treatment. We also know that, in order to manage such injuries appropriately, it is essential to be aware of not only what the injuries are, but why they occurred. So, in addition to traditional evaluation measures, our assessment includes careful review of training techniques, inspection of equipment, and/or biomechanical activity analysis.
Focus on Total PerformanceAt NRH Regional Rehab, our goal is not simply to treat your injury, but to integrate the injured joint or muscle into the total performance of the body as we safely restore you to the highest possible level of activity. Emphasis is on early intervention, on techniques to avoid complications such as loss of endurance and muscle stiffness, and for maintaining good physical conditioning through alternate means during injury convalescence. We then provide you with training guidelines to promote performance and prevent reinjury.
