Transitional Rehabilitation: The Next Step in Your Recovery

PTSMC Transitional Rehab

I’ve Finished My PT Program…Now What?

If you’ve recently completed your current course of physical therapy treatment and want to return to activity without fear of re-injury, Transitional Rehabilitation is for you!

Whether overcoming a major injury or dealing with a recurring problem, Physical Therapy is a vital part of getting you back to your daily life. Still, PT benefits do not always cover a full return to recreational activities or advancement beyond your original level of function.

Transitional Rehabilitation bridges the gap between the point of completing your physical therapy program and a full return to activity.

A Team Approach

Your physical therapist & transitional rehabilitation specialist will do a comprehensive evaluation and work together to develop a customized Transitional Rehabilitation program that encompasses:

  • Strength training & conditioning
  • Improved range of motion
  • Flexibility & plyometrics
  • Goal-specific cardiovascular exercise

Meet our Transitional Rehab Team!
