Short-term rehabilitation provides care after you leave the hospital but before you’re ready to go home. During a short-term rehab stay, you’ll get care that helps you make a smooth transition back to daily living.

If you’ve been told you may need short-term rehab, you want to know all your options. And not every short-term rehabilitation provider in Dallas is the same. Get to know more about why you may need this type of care and how we can care for you.

Why You May Need Short-Term Rehabilitation

Short-term rehab may benefit people with a variety of illnesses or injuries. Often, you may be ready to leave the hospital but need more therapy to fully regain your abilities. Short-term rehab can provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and more. This team works together to help you get back to the activities of daily life at home.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine says you may need rehab for:

  • Stroke
  • Major surgeries
  • Injuries or trauma, such as major fractures
  • Severe infections
  • Neurological conditions, such as brain injury
  • Side effects from medical treatments
