Titusville Area Hospital Physical Therapy
The Titusville Area Hospital (TAH) physical therapy department is involved
with evaluating and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular
systems. The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to restore maximum functional
independence to each patient. The treatments promote the ability to move,
reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. The basic goals
of physical therapy are to:
- Relieve pain and discomfort
- Regain movement and promote feeling
- Restore function to the injured body part
- Rebuild confidence and motivate patients to work toward recovery
- Help people adapt to any permanent physical changes

TAH Physical Therapy is the only facility in Titusville that offers aquatic
therapy. The therapeutic pool is kept between 90-94 degrees for not only
your comfort, but also because this range reaches the ideal temperature
for therapeutic benefits by drawing the blood into target tissues. This
increased blood flow delivers needed oxygen and nutrients and removes
cell waste. The warmth also relaxes tense muscles, decreases muscle spasm,
relieves pain, and can increase range of motion. Our pool also provides
an underwater treadmill for initial ambulatory exercises, therapeutic
jets for pain relief and muscle relaxation, as well as an adjustable current
jet which allows for higher level exercises.
A transition program from in-patient therapy to out-patient therapy is
another unique feature that is offered. If you are hospitalized at Titusville
Area Hospital, your established therapy regimen will be continued in the
out-patient setting. The same highly trained therapist may even be treating
you as an out-patient.
After your therapy is complete, you can join the F.I.T. (Functional Independent
Training) program at TAH Physical Therapy. This program allows you to
continue regaining strength and endurance on equipment that you are familiar
with for a monthly fee of $30. The trained staff will also be available
to assist you if you have any questions.
TAH physical therapy also offers direct access. This allows a physical
therapist to evaluate and treat a patient without a referral from a doctor.
It is covered by medical insurance the same as physical therapy with a
refferal from a doctor. It simply allows you to come in for treatment
sooner, if you need to. The information from your physical therapy evaluation
is sent to your primary care physician so he/she can be kept informed
of your treatment and be part of the rehab team.
