Here you are more than a patient

Our goal is to help you transition from feeling like a patient to a person who can operate independently. We’ve learned from experience that intense rehabilitation gets patients mobilized faster. This is why, each weekday, patients receive three or more hours of personally supervised therapy—spaced throughout the day at regular intervals.

We offer the following specialized therapies for our orthopedic patients:

  • Physical therapy – Focuses on mobility while reducing pain and improving, strength, balance and coordination.
  • Occupational therapy – Addresses activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing and toileting, as well as homemaking skills.
  • Recreational therapy – Prepares patients to return to the community and fully participate in life.
  • Aquatic therapy – Promotes muscle relaxation, strengthening and improved circulation in a low impact, relaxing environment.

The quickest route to being you again

All of these resources add up to results: Brooks’ patients have a higher improvement in functioning than the national average. Envision yourself walking, dancing, playing a tennis match—this is how to look forward to your future with the help of Brooks.
