Inpatient Rehab Services

At Bladen County Hospital we offer acute care physical and occupational therapy. Our team assists in the care of hospita lized patients who needs rehab before returning home.

Our treatment areas include:

  • Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Diseases
  • Neurolgical Diseases & Disorders
  • Post-surgical Care
  • Fracture/Trauma/Orthopedic Care
  • General Debility

Therapists work with patients to promote safe ambulation, proper use of assistive devices and adaptive equipment, stair training, balance strategies, range of motion and strengthening exercises, self-care and home management strategies, as well as providing patients and family members with appropriate education.

Outpatient Rehab Services (Fitness Center)

The physical and occupational therapy departments at the Fitness Center provide therapy services independent of the Fitness Center. Because the Physical and Occupational Therapy Department is located within the fitness facility, our members can receive therapy that is ‘close to home.’ We can also assist our patients with transitioning into a fitness program following completion of therapy.  

Our outpatient clinic sees a high volume of patients with chronic pain and we can effectively help these patients. We offer patients therapy in the fitness pool when their conditions prevent pain free therapy in a land-based setting.

Our clinic boasts an experienced Occupational Therapist, who is able to manage patients with shoulder, wrist and hand problems. 

Our Outpatient Rehab Team specializes in the management of:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Preoperative and post-operative knee replacements
  • Preoperative and post-operative hip replacements
  • Post-operative shoulder surgery
  • Hand Injuries
  • Functional retraining following hand surgery
  • Complex sports injuries
  • Dysfunctional correction prior to “Transitional Fitness Management”
  • Final stage of rehabilitation following a stroke
  • Reconditioning for work reintegration
  • Postural correction and ergonomic training
  • Muscle pain

We are located on 1001 Broad Street in Elizabethtown. For more information, please call (910) 862-4042.
