Guiding you every step of the way, they will help you regain muscle strength and instruct you on how to safely perform daily tasks, such as dressing, bathing, navigating stairs, and entering and exiting vehicles. This initial rehabilitation sets the stage for a smoother transition to the next phase of physical therapy.

After your joint replacement surgery at Orlando Health Bayfront Hospital, we extend our comprehensive care to include convenient outpatient rehabilitation services. Our commitment to delivering exceptional physical and occupational therapy remains the same throughout your entire recovery, from your inpatient stay to outpatient care.
