Acute Care

In this setting, physical therapy is provided to individuals who are admitted to a hospital for short-term patient care for reasons such as illness, surgery, accident, or recovery from a trauma. The goal in this setting is to discharge the person as soon as he or she is medically stable and has a safe place to go.

Physical therapists examine patients and develop a plan of care that promotes movement, reduces pain, restores function, and prevents disability. The physical therapist works with the patient, family and other members of the health care team to ensure the goals of the plan of care are met and the patient outcomes are optimal.

Therapy is often used by physicians to augment surgical or medical treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. It is commonly prescribed to help patients recover their strength and mobility after surgical procedures, rehabilitate damaged joints, alleviate pain from chronic conditions and build strength to prevent further injury. North Florida Regional Medical Center and ReQuest Physical Therapy offer two specialized locations for therapy needs:
