The RVNA Difference in Rehabilitation and Therapy
RVNA offers a wide variety of in-home and out-patient therapy services, all provided by our highly-trained, fully-certified, caring therapists. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy are just some of the in-home services we provide, along with less common therapies such as vestibular rehabilitation. We also conduct home safety assessments and recommendations for modifications where needed. Ask for RVNA by name to ensure you receive our quality rehabilitation and therapy services.
We provide top-quality in-home therapy and rehabilitation services 7 days a week. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance and private pay patients.
We also collaborate with surgeons to provide home care to their same-day surgery joint replacement patients, including pre-surgery home evaluations and post-surgery team care (nursing and physical and/or occupational therapy.) Interested in learning more? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RVNA Rehabilitation Areas of Expertise include:
Joint Replacement Physical Therapy:
Physical therapy is crucial to preventing stiffness, scar tissue and loss of muscle tone after a hip or knee replacement. A quality physical therapy program greatly increases the likelihood of long-term success by strengthening the muscles around the affected joint. When planning your surgery and rehabilitation, ask for RVNA Physical Therapy by name.
Before and immediately after your knee or hip replacement surgery, RVNA is there to assist you and support you, increasing your chances of post-operative success. Here is how the RVNA program works:
- Once your surgery is scheduled but before it takes places, an RVNA physical therapist can visit your home and conduct a Home Safety Assessment/Evaluation. He or she will provide you with information so that you can prepare for your return from the hospital, such as furniture placement, meal preparation, and bathing/personal grooming strategies.
- Our Home Health Navigator will visit you in the hospital to answer any questions you may have about what to expect upon returning home.
- The day after you return home, even it is on a weekend, your RVNA physical therapist will begin your in-home daily post-operative therapy. Continuous therapy is very important at this stage of your recovery, and we will come to your home up to seven days a week.
- If you have been instructed to use a Continuous Passive Motion machine (CPM) for your knee replacement, your RVNA therapist will teach you how to manage it.
- Your RVNA therapy will continue until you are no longer homebound, at which time you can continue your physical therapy at an office location.
Our therapist can help you recover from any illness that causing weakness or immobility, whether a hospital stay or an in-home illness that causes lasting weakness. Our therapist will help you recover by developing a customized program.
RVNA occupational therapists (OT’s) help people do the everyday things they want to be able to do in order to live a full, productive life. For example, our OT’s may help someone recovering from an injury or stroke regain lost skills, or support older adults experiencing physical or cognitive changes. RVNA’s Activities of Daily Living program helps patients develop the skills they need to successfully complete day-to-day activities on their own by teaching and practicing everyday tasks, such as grooming, dressing and food preparation.
We provide in-home physical and occupational therapy to someone who is recovering from any orthopedic surgery or fracture. Our therapist will provide you with mobility skills and a personalized strengthening program in order to gain maximum function.
Speech therapy is an important part of the rehabilitation program for patients who are recovering from a stroke, experiencing swallowing difficulties or living with Parkinson’s disease, ALS, multiple sclerosis and other diseases. Our Speech Language Pathologists have experience in all areas, including cognitive training and speech language retraining. They provide customized treatment plans based on individual needs and have recently incorporated iPads and targeted speech therapy applications to develop well-rounded plans of care that patients can continue independently.
This form of therapy helps patients who are suffering from dizziness, vertigo, head trauma or Meniere’s disease. The usual goal of vestibular therapy, which may include exercises and activities, is to help your body and brain regain the ability to process balance information properly. The RVNA Vestibular Rehabilitation Program help patients return to normal, everyday activities with confidence.
