The Next Step in Your Care

The Next Step in Your Care
Sarah Warburton

There’s a celebration going on this month…and it doesn’t require crazy costumes or bags of candy. October is National Physical Therapy Month and patients all over Fort Bend and beyond are taking the time to say “Thanks.” Bindu Varghese, Director of Therapy Operations at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital Sugar Land, says, “All of us at HealthSouth––our PTs, OTs, Speech Therapists, and Technicians––work together to help our patients through the next step in their care!”

When you’re ready to be discharged from a hospital but not ready to return home, Healthsouth is there for you. Bindu says, “Rehabilitation works best with a diverse team of experts who work together. Each brings special expertise to the table and the whole is greater than the sum of parts. We have experts to address all the different facets of your rehabilitation, but this month the nation celebrates the contribution of physical therapists. Physical therapists design specialized testing and exercise to increase physical function, mobility and safety. We’ve got a state-of-the-art gym with the latest rehabilitation technologies…and a team of people who come to work with real professionalism and an attitude of love.”

“Rehabilitation is all we do and we offer highly specialized services including an amputee program, an arthritis program, and rehabilitation for those suffering a brain injury, hip fracture, joint replacement, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, stroke, or multi-trauma. Our physical therapists work with physicians, patients, their families and other members of their care team to develop comprehensive, individualized, and cost-effective treatment plans.”

“Our physical therapists help patients through therapeutic exercises for strengthening, work on teaching the use of the walker, cane, crutches and wheelchair, offer fall prevention, bed mobility, transfer, and ambulation training…and they are also offer inspiration and motivation. Our enthusiastic and passionate team of physical therapists share teamwork and a wonderful sense of camaraderie with our occupational therapists, speech therapists, technicians, nurses and doctors. The nation may celebrate Physical Therapy Month in October, but we celebrate the hard work of our team and our patients every day! We share a passion for caring!”
