It’s not easy to bounce back from a hip replacement or broken leg. Even bone, joint or muscle pain can lead to problems if left untreated.
Healing can take weeks or months, but early and intense orthopedic rehabilitation at Mary Free Bed can help you get back to doing the things that enrich your life.
Our teams work daily with patients with injuries and conditions like yours, whether it’s knee or shoulder pain, or recovery from surgery. They understand the recovery challenges you face, and they’re focused on helping you regain independence.
A coordinated team of orthopedic rehabilitation specialists will care for you, each member using their expertise to help you improve your strength, flexibility, balance and fine motor skills. This means an integrated, cohesive approach to fuel your recovery.
Our orthopedic rehabilitation program consistently achieves exceptionally high satisfaction scores from patients and families — and we’d be happy to help you experience the same satisfaction.
In our inpatient program, you’ll enjoy an enriching environment with therapy gyms near your private room and many other resources.
The duration and intensity of your therapy will depend on your individual needs and tolerance. Research shows the sooner you begin rehabilitation at an appropriate level of intensity, the better your outcome will be.
Patients typically do three or more hours of therapy at least five days a week, with therapeutic recreation activities, rest and visits with family and friends on the weekends.
A variety of specialized technology and rehabilitation equipment is available, including two therapy pools and a ceiling-mounted system that helps you safely and comfortably practice walking without being afraid of falling.
Your family is part of your team, too! After all, they’ll be helping you be as independent as possible after rehabilitation. That’s why we encourage loved ones to participate in your therapy sessions.
When your inpatient stay is over and you become a Mary Free Bed graduate, you can continue receiving therapy through our outpatient or home and community programs. We’ll be here to offer follow-up services for as long as you need us.

A musculoskeletal injury or condition can affect your life in many ways. Bone, joint or muscle pain could lead to short- or long-term problems, and may result in missed days at work or the inability to enjoy the activities you enjoy.
We want to help you function better and live a life with less pain, no matter whether you’ve graduated from our inpatient program or you need rehabilitation following surgery or a musculoskeletal injury.
We treat patients in our outpatient program with a wide range of musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions:
Your therapy program will include a thorough evaluation and assessment, along with a home exercise program created just for you. Depending on your condition, your appointment may also include a functional movement screen or gait assessment.
