Orthopedic rehabilitation is the treatment of individuals across the life span with disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This can include trauma, sports injury, disease, infection, tumors and congenital disorders. Often times the patient has had surgical interventions, such as a hip, knee or shoulder replacement.
The orthopedic program at Allied Rehab and Heinz Rehab provides comprehensive rehabilitation to patients with muscle and joint surgeries and injuries of the extremities. Our goal is to recover functional skills, maximize mobility and reduce pain levels. A dedicated team of physical and occupational therapists utilize current research-based clinical practice to diagnose and treat patients of all ages, following surgery, athletic injury or on the job injury, to help improve function and resume daily activities. Through the use of our skilled interventions and a team approach from therapies, nursing and social services, patients are able to return to the community and achieve their maximal functional return.

To provide the best care possible for patients recovering from an orthopedic condition or injury, Allied Services provides a comprehensive, seamless continuum of rehabilitative care. Our outpatient programs are primarily for people living safely at home who have completed or did not require a post-acute inpatient stay, but require additional rehabilitative therapy to alleviate physical limitation or pain.
If a patient suffering from an orthopedic condition or injury requires intensive, around-the-clock nursing and/or therapy services, but cannot tolerate or does not require the intensity of therapy delivered during an inpatient rehab hospital stay, or their insurance does not cover inpatient rehabilitation, they would be an appropriate candidate for a transitional or long-term stay at our skilled nursing facility. Conversely, if the patient requires 24-hour care and can tolerate the intensity of a stay at one of our rehabilitation hospitals, they would be best suited for a stay at one of our inpatient facilities.
At Allied Services, patient outcome metrics such as average number of visits, pain reduction, reduced function limitation, and likelyhood of recommending Allied Services to others, are among the best in the United States:
- 98% of our outpatient population reported that their overall rating of care received was either good or very good.
- 97% of our outpatient population reported that they would recommend out services to others.
- 93% of our outpatient population reported that they either had no pain or a decrease in their pain during their treatment.
Our rehabilitation facilities regularly outperform other rehabilitation providers nationwide. According to statistics compiled by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation, Allied Services ranks in the top 4% of 892 rehabilitation centers in the United States.
