Orthopedic Rehab

Treatment for Musculoskeletal Injuries & Conditions

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 Services Integrated Health System 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.
