Rehabilitation: Physical and occupational therapy
Patients often come to Bay Area Medical Center for therapy to regain the movement and mobility after an injury, surgery or illness. The large gym with a wide range of equipment is one of the areas in which this takes place.
Your time in the gym will be supervised by one of BAMC’s licensed therapists and therapy assistants, who focus on your healing and recovery. The goal is to offer a friendly and personal atmosphere where you feel at home while receiving therapy. The gym has more than 30 different pieces of equipment in a relaxed and motivating environment. It includes balance equipment; Cybex machines, which offer a full range of workout activities; and conditioning equipment, such as stationary arm and leg bikes, treadmills and stair-steppers. Directly adjacent to the gym area are 20 rooms where therapies can be done in greater privacy. The occupational therapy treatment room offers a setting for patients to work on daily living skills and for upper extremity injuries and splinting treatment.
Occupational health services
For more than a decade, BAMC has partnered with area business and industry to provide comprehensive, cost-effective occupational health services. The new center presents a variety of opportunities to better meet that goal.
BAMC continues to offer such services as injury care, physicals, drug and alcohol screenings and educational programs. The treatment team is led by a board-certified independent occupational health physician who is available at the center full time.
The occupational health section also includes four private exam rooms, a procedure room that physicians can use for minor procedures, such as stitching or stitch removal, and access to on-site x-ray services. Worker rehab is done in the Mobility Center gym.
The goal is to provide each company a one-stop shop for the prevention and treatment of work-related illnesses and injuries.
