While the business relocated just across the street, officials are excited about the possibilities of their new location.
After a few months of work, the Henry Ford Wyandotte Physical Rehabilitation Center is ready to open
Formerly known as Wyandotte Hospital Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Center, it used to operate out of the third floor of the , which is mere yards away from the new spot.
“The new facility is a great improvement and much easier to find,” said Denise Dailing, administrator for rehabilitation services. “The building’s large windows let in a huge amount of natural light and that, combined with the bright wall and accent colors, give our patients a beautiful, energizing environment for their rehabilitation.”
A grand opening for the new outpatient rehabilitation facility, 3323 Biddle, is set for 5 to 9 p.m. Friday. Visitors will be able to take a self-guided tour of the facility and learn about the outpatient rehabilitation services offered. Everyone who stops in can receive a free five-minute chair massage and enter to win a 30-minute massage. (Wyandotte Patch readers have )
Services offered through the outpatient rehabilitation program have not changed with the relocation. Professional therapists continue to offer physical, occupational, speech and massage therapy services, as well as a variety of specialized programs that focus on specific areas of the rehabilitation process.
These programs include:
- Driver Assessment. This program helps people regain the ability to drive after an injury or illness.
- Hand Therapy. Therapists with advanced training treat hand and arm injuries. It is available to acute post-operative patients on a walk-in basis.
- Industrial Rehabilitation. The Return to Work Center facilitates the process of rebuilding job skills after an illness or injury.
- Joint Replacement. Therapists meet with patients about upcoming elective surgeries and make recommendations about post surgical care.
- Lymphedema. In order to drain accumulated protein-rich fluid, this conservative approach consists of four parts: skin care, lymphatic drainage, bandaging and exercise.
- Sports medicine. Efforts are focused on treating chronic athletic-type injuries, acute post-surgical conditions and injuries caused from overuse or repetitive motions.
- Vestibular rehabilitation. Therapists help patients retrain balance and decrease feelings of dizziness.
Therapy programs are individualized and are established through consultations with the patient’s physician. Walk-in service and appointments are available. For more information, call 734-284-4499.
