Rehabilitation Providers

Physiatrists are physicians who specialize in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Physiatrists focus on the treatment of functional deficits caused by a variety of illnesses and injuries. They care for patients who have suffered catastrophic events resulting in brain injury, as well as patients with acute and chronic pain, musculoskeletal problems, joint replacement, amputation, and neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, polio, ALS, cerebrovascular accident, paraplegia, and quadriplegia. More than 4,000 patients are seen annually in Rehabilitation outpatient clinics. These clinics provide follow-up care for previous inpatients, and consultation services for a wide variety of physical complaints such as back pain and joint pain.

Collaborative Practitioners include a nurse practitioner, physician assistant and registered nurse case managers. The nurse practitioner and physician assistant provide assistance with rehabilitation patients. They see both new and follow-up patients in our outpatient clinics, determine rehabilitation needs through history and physical examinations, and determine the appropriate setting for inpatients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation Care Line has two registered nurse case managers. The inpatient nurse case manager provides assistance to the patient from the initial assessment through the rehabilitation program until discharge. The outpatient nurse case manager assists with outpatient clinics and is responsible for assessing the functional independence of new stroke, amputee and head injury patients admitted to the HVAMC.

Physical Therapy (PT) provides treatment aimed at preventing the onset, or slowing the progression of conditions resulting from injury or disease. The physical therapist provides services to people who have functional limitations resulting from back and neck injuries, sprains and strains, fractures, arthritis, burns, amputations, stroke, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, and injuries related to work and sports. The basic goals of physical therapy are to relieve pain and discomfort, regain movement and promote healing, restore function to the injured body part and to help people adapt to any permanent physical changes.

Occupational Therapy (OT) is skilled treatment that assists individuals to achieve independence and meaning in all facets of their lives. Occupational Therapy teaches people the “skills for the job of living” through individual or group therapy that may include: recommendations for home safety, use of adaptive equipment, patient and caregiver education, strategies and exercises to regain function in order to perform meaningful activities of daily living as safely and independently as possible. Services include skilled assessments, individualized treatment plans, and customized treatment sessions where the individual’s goals guide the treatment process.

Kinesiotherapy (KT) utilizes kinesiology, the study of human movement, to design and implement exercise programs to meet the rehabilitative needs of individuals with disease or injury. KT seeks to maximize strength, endurance, coordination and range of motion to enhance an individual’s functional level. They also educate the individual, family members and caregivers about disability and exercise in order to achieve the highest degree of independence and personal satisfaction.

Therapeutic Recreation (RT) works to improve a patient’s function and independence while reducing or eliminating the effects of illness or disability. RT assists you with incorporating activities and social interaction in your life as well as teaching adaptation of activities and equipment, teaching the skills to pursue your interest and how to access community resources.

Rehabilitation Social Worker provides a psychosocial assessment of the patient as relevant to the family or significant others. From the assessment, a treatment plan is developed that deals with the crises or disability resulting from the emotional, social, and economic stresses related to the illness or admission.

The social worker’s role is to ease the period of adjustment for our patients and their families. The social worker assesses the need for additional services at discharge, and can assist in coping with recovery, the patient’s return to the community, and identifying resources to meet the veteran’s particular needs.

Rehabilitation Nursing provides around-the-clock specialized nursing care to patients admitted to the rehabilitation unit. As our patient, based on your daily needs, the nurses will help you learn how to use equipment, teach you about positioning, about your medicines and pain control, and reinforce daily therapy outcomes. They will teach you and your family how to promote a speedy recovery and how to prevent further health problems during your hospital stay and when you return home.
