Orthopedic Rehabilitation Center
If you’ve sustained injury to your musculoskeletal system (bones and muscles), you can experience short- and long-term problems. In the short term, musculoskeletal injuries result in pain, missed work days, and a loss of freedom to enjoy the activities that enrich your life.
Sometimes these injuries progress into long-term problems such as chronic pain, disability, deconditioning, and dependence. The staff at the Orthopedic Rehabilitation Center at Mary Free Bed can help you achieve a greater level of physical functioning, and help you live a life with less pain.

Physical Therapy Evaluation
A licensed physical therapist will thoroughly review your health history, as well as the history of your orthopedic injury. The exam helps your therapist determine what treatment will provide optimal stimulus to restore injured tissue, enhance dysfunctional tissue, and regain functional ability to perform activities important to you.
Manual Therapy and Therapeutic Exercise
Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment that may include massage and joint mobilization. Therapeutic exercises provide stimulus to heal damaged tissue. The Orthopedic Rehabilitation Center staff has broad training in several kinds of exercise and therapy techniques.
McKenzie Method® and Feldenkrais Method®
The McKenzie and Feldenkrais methods are evidence-based, innovative therapies that provide reliable and rapid recovery of function. These methods help you understand the cause and the biomechanical cure of orthopedic injuries, which will empower your recovery.
