Rehabilitation

Whether you have recently undergone orthopaedic surgery, have been diagnosed with a neurologic condition, or are suffering from the effects of a recent fall, weakness, or stroke, UPMC Visiting Nurses are here to help. Our rehabilitation team includes highly trained therapists and nurses who have a wide range of specialty skills.

The time after surgery or an acute illness can result in weakness that may interfere with your participation in your normal, routine activities. Rehabilitation therapy is proven to be effective in increasing that strength.

Leaving your home is not always an easy or possible option. Upon receiving an order from your physician, our Rehab staff comes to you – in the comfort of your own home.
