The skilled therapists at UPMC Kane Rehabilitation Services work with you to help regain your functional independence following surgery, an injury, or other circumstances, providing care each step of the way — from preoperative and inpatient care to home and outpatient care.
Our therapists treat patients of all ages and functional levels. At every step of treatment, patients are provided with education regarding their condition and are encouraged to participate in developing their goals.
If you have recently had surgery, suffered from a sports-related injury, or live with another disorder, our physical therapy (PT) program is here for you. Our physical therapists use hands-on treatment techniques to let you regain or maintain your independence.
PT focuses on several rehabilitation techniques, including:
- Gross motor skills
- Gait training with and without an assistive device
- Endurance and balance training
- Other impairments of the upper and lower extremities and spine
Occupational therapy (OT) is crucial for individuals to regain independence in everyday activities. OT will help you regain your fine motor skills, cognitive skills, and other abilities with the goal of returning you to your normal routine.
