Specialty Rehabilitation Programs at Houston Methodist
At Houston Methodist we offer specialized rehabilitation programs for individuals who require more intensive care after injuries to the heart, musculoskeletal system and nervous system.
- Cardiac rehabilitation programs are designed for patients recovering from heart attack, angioplasty/stent, stable angina and open-heart surgery. These programs use supervised exercise and education to strengthen the heart muscle and emphasize the importance of maintaining overall heart health.
- Orthopedic and sports medicine rehabilitation programs are designed for patients recovering from injury to the musculoskeletal system, such as broken bones, torn ligaments and tendinitis. These programs focus not only on restoring normal function and returning to normal levels of activity, but also on implementing strategies to prevent future injury.
- Neurorehabilitation programs are designed for patients recovering from recent injury to the brain, such as stroke or trauma, as well as for patients living with diseases of the brain and nervous system, such as Parkinson's disease and brain tumors. These programs focus on maintaining or improving movement and cognition, and help patients set goals over the long term.
