Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Services

The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital is committed to helping each patient maximize their potential in the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. A wide range of treatment approaches and resources are available to support the needs of our patients, with a special focus on restoring function and mobility to improve quality of life. Our expertly trained therapists utilize a comprehensive rehabilitation strategy to assess, treat and address the unique needs of each individual.

Personalized treatment plans are developed for each patient’s unique needs and lifestyle. Building trust through extensive one-on-one therapy in a comfortable and convenient environment ensures patients can target their short and long term goals. Onsite orthopaedic doctors provide added comprehensive care so patients can confidently focus on recovery. Our program offers comprehensive treatment approaches specializing in spinal, orthopaedic, pelvic health, neurological and vestibular disorders. Patients also have the added benefit of aquatic physical therapy through a community partnership with the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA. Our wellness classes — FallProof® and Get Up & Go — are taught by physical therapists and exercise physiologists, and they are designed to promote healthy living and independence for seniors.
