At East Cooper Medical Center, we offer comprehensive rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

It is our goal to provide treatment to facilitate functional independence and improve quality of life for the persons we serve.

Inpatient Services

Our inpatient rehabilitation department serves patients on the medical-surgical floor, ICU unit and Day Surgery departments. The rehab program serves patients who have experienced a loss in function due to an injury, surgery, or illness including:

Total Joint Replacement

S/P Spine surgery

Fractures and/or orthopedic dysfunction

Stroke (CVA)





Parkinson's Disease


Neurological Disorders

Work-related injuries

Other illness/injury


Once a patient at ECMC is referred to a specific therapy (physical, occupational, and/or speech), the patient is evaluated by a licensed therapist. The evaluation allows the therapist to establish a plan of treatment designed to help the patient move toward independence. The rehab professional works with physicians, nursing staff, social workers and discharge planners to determine if the patient is ready for the transition from hospital to home.

An important part of this transition is education. Each treatment plan is designed to provide education to the patient, patient's family and care givers. Education and training provide ways to assist the patient with mobility, precautions following surgery, use of adaptive equipment and therapeutic exercises.
