North Central Arkansas Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Surgery & Joint Pain Recovery
Orthopedic rehabilitation is a special program designed to help patients
overcome joint pain and recover from surgery. During this comprehensive
program, you work closely with a specially trained instructor who guides
you through safe, low impact exercises intended to loosen the muscles
and restore your full range of motion. In many cases, rehabilitation combined
with other non-invasive treatments is enough to remedy a patient’s
condition and eliminate their need for surgery.
At Baxter Regional Medical Center, we work with experienced and dedicated
rehabilitation professionals trained in some of the most effective exercises
and stretches for relieving bone and join pains. Even if you have already
had surgery, you may still benefit from rehabilitation as it can speed
up the recovery process.

- Attending rehab twice a week, or however many times is deemed most useful
by the medical staff, and what the patient feels comfortable with
- Light exercises that should not cause intense pain or discomfort
- Working towards the patient’s individual goals for mobility and independence
During rehab, your physical therapist will maintain regular contact with
your primary care physician so they can stay updated on your progress.
These two will be working together to track your progress and ensure that
rehabilitation is yielding the results that it should.
