Therapy & Rehabilitation
Illness, injury and chronic conditions can limit a person’s ability to perform even the most basic tasks. IHC skilled professional staff are dedicated to providing rehabilitation services that help people stay as healthy as possible by managing their condition and taking steps to prevent pain or further injury.
IHC ‘s physiotherapists work with clients who are recovering from heart attack, hemiplegia, paraplegia and quadriplegia, knee or hip replacement surgeries, fractures, coronary bypass surgery or who have chronic breathing problems. We can develop a personalized treatment program that includes exercises to increase range of motion, strengthen muscles and improve balance and coordination. They can also provide a home assessment review and make recommendations to help people with physical challenges stay safely in their homes. If your child has a challenging physical disability that makes mobility difficult our skilled physiotherapists can provide individualized treatment programs to assess and treat their limitation and provide valuable opinion.
