About Rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation is a medical specialty that helps people regain body functions they lost due to medical conditions or injury. This term is often used to describe the whole medical team, not just the doctors.

Rehabilitation can help many body functions, including bowel and bladder problems, chewing and swallowing, problems thinking or reasoning, movement or mobility, speech, and language.

The UMMC Difference

UMMC provides comprehensive rehabilitation to help patients reach the best of their abilities to lead independent, fulfilling lives. We offer expert assessment and innovative treatment to those whose lives have been affected by physical, cognitive, and developmental problems.

We work together with the patient and family to set and reach goals that are important to them.

Our staff shares a commitment to patient care and a dedication to education and research. Our therapists hold a variety of specialty certifications, including lymphedema certification and board certifications in sports, geriatrics, orthopaedics, pediatrics, and neurology.
