Make Your Recovery Process a Little Easier

If the thought of rehabilitation leaves you with a feeling of dread, it shouldn’t. Rehab is what builds your strength and ability to get back to health.

We treat you like family at our recently renovated rehab clinic. We offer extended hours of operation, making it easier for you to coordinate your rehabilitation within your own busy schedule.

Aquatic Therapy

Therapy can be challenging, especially if your condition has left you too weak or in too much pain to push through traditional physical therapy. If you’re struggling with a condition like severe rheumatoid arthritis, every movement hurts, and just the mere thought of therapy can make you wince. Thankfully, there are alternative solutions.

West Feliciana Hospital offers aquatic therapy, including an underwater treadmill. This unique type of therapy lets you exercise and build your strength with little or no pain. Aquatic therapy isn’t available everywhere, but it’s available here in the West Feliciana area.

Our aquatic therapy equipment includes:

In-ground Therapy Pool

You’ll use the underwater treadmill in our pool to build strength using water resistance, taking advantage of an effect called hydrostatic pressure to decrease your pain and accelerate your recovery.

Hivamat 200 Deep Oscillation Unit

After a surgery or sports injury, your lymphatic drainage system accumulates a lot of metabolic waste that can slow your healing. The Hivamat unit helps your body get rid of those waste products and shortens your recovery time.

KoreBalance Trainer

Regaining or improving your balance can be one of the major objectives of therapy. When you suffer from an unexpected fall, the fear of falling again can be debilitating and detrimental to your future health and well-being.

The KoreBalance Trainer is a revolutionary breakthrough for people with balance problems. Korbalance is a computer-controlled machine that simulates an unstable platform. As you stand on the platform, training programs adjust its stability, thereby stimulating the brain and nervous system to improve your balance, stability, coordination, and posture.

Interactive 3D games make training fun and captivating. KoreBalance can help with orthopedic rehab, fall prevention, motor-skill training, or help you build strength, flexibility, and agility. If you suffer from dizziness, vertigo, Multiple Sclerosis, ataxia, Parkinson’s disease or have suffered a stroke, our KoreBalance Trainer will help you get back on your feet and regain your confidence.

Build your strength back closer to home.

State-of-the-art equipment and a professional team of licensed therapists right here in your own backyard. Ask your doctor to recommend St. Francis Rehabilitation Services.
