Outfitted with a comprehensive array of state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment, Santé of Mesa therapists individualize treatment approaches so that even patients with complex trauma or orthopedic procedures make safe and expedient recoveries.
Whether recovering from a traumatic fall and injury, or after a planned bone or joint surgery, at Santé of Mesa, we believe early mobility is the first step towards safety and independence for orthopedic rehabilitation. Following physician-directed protocols, our therapists begin the rehabilitation process immediately, carrying over gains from hospital therapy so that you progress through the phases of your recovery.
The cardiac rehabilitation program is designed to help you regain your strength, safely condition your heart muscle and improve your general fitness level. Part of rehabilitation is to help prevent further heart problems. Your therapy program will be personalized to help you improve bed mobility, transfers, activities of daily living and gait. You might require intensive nursing care for post surgical wounds, dressing changes and/or IV management. Your therapy will focus on strengthening your heart through aerobic exercises such as walking.
Recovery and rehabilitation are important aspects of stroke treatment. In some cases, undamaged areas of the brain may be able to perform functions that were lost when the stroke occurred. Rehabilitation includes physical therapy, speech language pathology, and occupational therapy. Physical therapy involves using exercise and other physical means (e.g., massage, heat) to help patients regain the use of their arms and legs and prevent muscle stiffness in patients with permanent paralysis. Speech language pathology helps patients regain the ability to communicate and swallow safely.
