Physical therapy

Physical therapy is for patients who have an injury or a condition that limits their ability to move. Physical therapy can also aid in recovery after surgery. The physical therapy department at Rose works closely with other departments to improve the total health of our patients. We begin working with patients immediately after surgery and throughout their stay to reduce pain while improving movement.

Physical therapy for back, neck and spine problems

Physical therapists help diagnose, manage and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, bones and joints, as well as rehabilitate patients post-surgery. Our dedicated outpatient and inpatient physical therapists are committed to improving your health and helping you return to your normal lifestyle. Our therapists are continually educating themselves in the most advanced techniques of rehabilitation. Their goal is to ensure that your treatment is successful.

We offer the following forms of therapy to aid in the rehabilitation process to patients who are experiencing a back, neck or spine problem:

Passive therapies

This type of therapy does not require patient participation and includes such things as the application of heat, ultrasound, spinal manipulations, myofascial release and/or electrical stimulation. Passive therapy can help restore and increase mobility, alleviate pain and reduce muscle spasms.

Active therapies

This therapy is used to address flexibility, mobility, coordination, weakness, stiffness, weight-bearing intolerance and pain. Treatment programs are highly individualized to meet the patient’s specific needs.


This therapy is focused on teaching practical skills to patients in order to avoid unnecessary strain or stress and to protect their spine. Patients learn how to bend, lift, reach, carry, stand, sit and get in and out of vehicles.

Speech therapy

Our speech therapy program offers prevention, screening, consultation, assessment and diagnosis, treatment, intervention, management, counseling and follow-up services for disorders affecting speech, language and swallowing.

Cardiac rehabilitation

Often, rehabilitation is required following a heart event or a heart disease diagnosis. Cardiac rehab helps patients maintain their healthy heart muscle. Cardiac rehab is shown to help patients recover from:

  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Coronary stenting
  • Heart attack
  • Heart valve surgery


An injury to the brain or central nervous system can seriously affect a person’s ability to perform a variety of tasks. Neurorehabilitation can help improve a person’s ability to function independently after being diagnosed with conditions, such as:

  • Brain tumor
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Seizure disorder (epilepsy)
