Specialized care and support for chronic and serious conditions
Lehigh Regional Medical Center offers dedicated programs that address the
unique needs of specific illnesses and conditions. Each person has different
needs during recovery, so our rehabilitation programs include a range
of therapies and assistance to ensure patients receive the care and support
they need. Therapists also serve as educators to ensure patients, family
members and caregivers are well informed and able to meet recovery challenges.
Our multidisciplinary rehabilitation team provides expert, compassionate
care and support to address a range of conditions, including:
Arthritis – Management therapies incorporate stretching, exercise and pain
management techniques to preserve and improve range of motion.
Cancer – Recovery strategies focus on helping patients regain strength
Heart and vascular conditions – Rehabilitation strategies include exercise, diet and education
to help patients regain their overall health.
Joint replacement – Physical rehabilitation focuses on helping patients regain mobility
and return to daily activities.
Neurological conditions – Customized therapies are designed to meet the cognitive, physical
and emotional needs of each patient. Therapists assist with everything
from helping patients re-learn skills to offering compensatory strategies
to provide patients with as much independence as possible.
Pulmonary conditions – Rehabilitation strategies focus on reducing shortness of breath
and other respiratory symptoms, as well as building strength and endurance.
