Inpatient Physical Therapy
Our inpatient department serves patients at Tahoe Forest Hospital. They provide services during the inpatient stay for individuals that have been hospitalized and require skilled therapeutic services. Patients treated by our therapists range from postoperative patients who have received total joint replacements, patients with traumatic injuries, to patients hospitalized following illness. They also provide skilled inpatient rehabilitation services in our Skilled Nursing Facility for patients who require a longer rehab stay prior to being able to discharge home safely, as well as skilled therapy services for residents of the Tahoe Forest Long Term Care Center.

Wound Care Services
Our Wound Care Specialists are physical therapists who can evaluate and treat a wide variety of wounds, ranging from chronic non-healing wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical dehiscence, to infected wounds that require sharp debridement. Each wound is handled with utmost care to best optimize healing. A course of wound care requires a physician referral and may entail coming to the clinic for treatment 2-3 times a week for several weeks to allow the wound to heal. Our services include sharp debridement, enzymatic debridement, therapeutic compression wrapping, wound vac changes, total contact casting, and skilled dressing changes. Meet our Wound Care Staff.
Course of Treatment
Rehabilitation integrates education and a multitude of manual therapies, neuromuscular re-education, movement preparation, and pain management.
Evaluation The goal of an evaluation is to determine your current medical condition and develop a treatment plan based upon your personal goals.
Treatment Your treatment plan may sometimes require multiple visits over a period of time. In other instances, one initial visit with one follow-up is all that may be required.
Education A key component of therapy is education. The background and training of a therapist is focused on getting you better and giving you the tools to improve and maintain your health.
Home Exercise Programs These programs are designed to give you exercises or stretches to take what is done in the clinic and extend it to the home.
Your Involvement You are an integral part of the process. Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies do not happen without your involvement. Think of this as a partnership in your health.
