University Hospitals takes a multidisciplinary approach to care, so our team comes together to determine the optimal rehabilitation plan for your unique needs and goals. We focus on hands-on manual therapy – 1:1 time spent with patients – to give the attention and individualized approach you need that leads to improved recovery. Our team schedules patients with a dedicated time frame so each of our certified clinical therapists can really focus on the therapeutic treatment that will meet your personal objectives, including adjustments and modifications based on your individual progress.

Multidisciplinary Approach Improves Form and Function

Our multidisciplinary approach provides access to any of University Hospitals’ dedicated areas of rehabilitation for any level of injury. We continually assess progress to allow our team to bring in any specialist needed to assist in getting our patients back to optimal form and function.

  • Alter G zero gravity, or weightless, treadmill to reduce impact on joints
  • Balance and coordination activities
  • Concussion rehabilitation management
  • Cupping therapy for pain, inflammation or blood flow
  • Trigger point dry needling for pain or movement impairments
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Electromyography (EMG) feedback to evaluate muscle function
  • Manual therapy (manipulation, soft tissue mobilization)
  • Strength and flexibility exercises
  • Ultrasound

Direct Communication for Improved Outcomes

We have an established plan in place for direct communication with our orthopedic specialists, including referring physicians and sports medicine specialists, to update physicians on progress and any recommended modifications in the treatment plan. We also have initial communications with referring physicians to understand their preferences for rehabilitation and physical therapy. These frequent updates, and personal communications, allow for immediate adjustments in care.
