NMMC-Iuka's Rehabilitation Services provides these services and more:
Diabetic Foot Care/Toenail Debridement
Individuals with diabetes are often prone to foot problems. An individual with diabetes may be referred by a medical doctor (approximately every three months) to our facility to have his/her toenails debrided or minor calluses removed.
At NMMC-Iuka, the occupational therapist works part-time with outpatients, acute patients and swingbed patients. The main objective is to increase the function and independence of patients and assist patients in returning to pre-injury functional level. The OT works closely with her patients to improve fine motor skills and reasoning abilities.
Acute Physical Therapy
The acute physical therapy department provides physical therapy services to acute patients Monday-Friday, but patients with wounds or a recent heart attack may receive physical therapy seven days a week as directed by a physician. Our therapists provide a wide range of services, including gait training, transfer training, bed mobility training, wheelchair mobility training, range of motion of extremities, joint mobilizations, strengthening exercises, wound care and neuromuscular re-education.
NMMC-Iuka’s swingbed program is designed to transition individuals from an acute care setting to their home setting. Our therapists strive to return patients to the highest level of independence possible. Often, our program is utilized for individuals who have had surgery, like a hip or knee replacement. However, it may be used for many other reasons, such as a stroke patient who hopes to return home soon. Our patients in the swingbed program usually receive physical therapy twice a day during the week and once a day on weekends. In addition, they usually receive occupational therapy services three days a week. Swingbed placement is contingent upon doctor approval, rehabilitation potential, available beds and other factors.
General Outpatient Physical Therapy
NMMC-Iuka’s outpatient rehabilitation department is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. An individual must have a physical therapy order from his/her doctor prior to receiving physical therapy.
