The NCH Healthcare system offers Outpatient Rehabilitation specialty programs that address Women’s Health issues. Our skilled and compassionate therapists provide the following treatment programs:
Risk of fractures is oftentimes associated with Osteoporosis. Upon receiving a referral from a physician, a Physical Therapist specialized in treating patients with Osteoporosis, will perform a comprehensive evaluation and provide a customized treatment plan. The newly expanded program at NCH focuses on spinal alignment and posture, as well as flexibility, strength, mobility and balance. At the completion of treatment, education on osteoporosis, an appropriate home management plan, and a progression to the NCH wellness center are primary goals.
Lymphedema is localized fluid retention and tissues swelling caused by accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the body. Lymphedema oftentimes occurs following breast cancer treatment, trauma to an extremity, or when lymphatic vessels are impaired. Our experienced lymphedema therapist is certified in the Vodder technique. Treatment plans are based upon individual needs and may include Complete Decongestive Therapy, (CDT).
