 Special Note
Our state of the art Health and Rehabilitation Center has physical therapists certified  in Lymphedema Therapy. Through the use of exercise, manual techniques and specialized garments, we can effectively control or eliminate the arm or leg swelling that can accompany many conditions. In addition, each person is taught how to care for themselves so that they can manage their condition at home.

 

Trinitas Regional Medical Center's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center is designed to provide the community with a facility that provides a range of therapeutic exercise, fitness and wellness programs under one roof. We offer cardiac, pulmonary and diabetic rehabilitation, outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapies and supervised fitness training. Our skilled staff is available to you whether you are recovering from a medical condition or you want to simply exercise to stay fit. Our 7,000 sq. ft. Center offers an environment in which you may attain your optimal health, regardless of any limiting medical conditions.

The Center's equipment has been specifically selected to enable everyone, from cardiac patients to athletes, to exercise together safely within the limits of their abilities. This equipment includes individual weight stations, treadmills, stationary bicycles, rowing machines, Nordic Track, Stairmasters, elliptical trainers and Olympic-style free weights. A highly trained, multilingual staff of physical, occupational and speech therapists and fitness professionals design individual programs to meet the needs and goals of every client.

Diabetic Rehabilitation
Trinitas Regional Medical Center's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center staff works closely with the Hospital's Diabetes Management Center and your physician to assist you with your basic exercise needs.

Cardiac Rehabilitation
Your physician will determine when you are ready to participate in the Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. This individually designed, comprehensive therapeutic exercise program also provides you with counseling, educational and nutritional services. The program will help you decrease the risk factors of cardiac disease and restore you to the best possible health. A collaborative team of professionals helps you and your family make the lifestyle changes necessary for a better quality of life. The Phase 2 Cardiac Rehabilitation Program usually lasts for a period of 12 weeks; the optional Maintenance program is available based on your progress in Phase 2.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation
After your physician determines the need for pulmonary rehabilitation, he/she must write an order for the process to begin, Trinitas Regional Medical Center's rehabilitative staff develops a structured, individualized program to meet the goals within your physical limitations. This may involve exercise, education and counseling.

Therapies
Trinitas Regional Medical Center's therapy outpatients receive their care in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center. The Center incorporates all the basic therapies-physical, occupational and speech therapy. Our staff of therapy professionals is licensed by the State of New Jersey. All our services work closely with your physician to insure a level of coordination of your specific program to meet your specific goals.

Physical Therapy/Lymphedema/Women's Health
Physical Therapy may include orthopedic or neurological therapy, pain management, functional training, balance retraining, strengthening, endurance, flexibility lymphedema management and treatment for incontinence.
