Acute Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy

Acute Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy

Our physical and occupational therapists are specially trained to work with patients with serious medical conditions who are in the hospital. We will focus with you on early mobilization and functional re-training in self-help skills. These are necessary components of your recovery process.

We will strive to:

  • Increase your independence in moving
  • Increase your independence in completing daily activities such as dressing, grooming, bathing and eating
  • Identify medical equipment and therapy services needed after you leave our hospital

Therapy services in Houston Methodist Hospital are initiated in conjunction with your doctors, with their request for therapy consultation. Your therapy sessions are delivered at your bedside. Please be assured that our standards of therapy care have been established using evidence, as well as guidelines from the American Physical Therapy Association and American Occupational Therapy Association.
