Orthopedic rehabilitation

At some point in our lives, we all have pain that makes life's simple tasks difficult. Whether you’re experiencing knee, back or shoulder pain, our rehabilitation therapists can help you regain mobility and health. 

Orthopedics is the area of medicine dedicated to preserving and restoring function of the musculoskeletal system which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. 

At Edward-Elmhurst Health Rehabilitation, we pride ourselves on our ability to evaluate and treat all orthopedic conditions. Our orthopedic outcomes rank in the top 10 percent nationwide and we do so in fewer visits than the average clinic, saving you money.

Our hospitals have the highest number of board-certified orthopedic certified specialists in the area and we provide cutting-edge therapy through advanced education and certification programs for our staff. We also specialize in manual physical therapy, which is an integral component of orthopedic care.

We work hard to match you with the right therapist, at the right location to improve your outcomes and satisfaction. You’ll benefit from a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, and progressive one-on-one care with the same therapist throughout the length of your treatment.
