Outdoor Gait Lab:
Our outdoor gait lab is used to treat gait and balance dysfunction so that you can get around your home and community safely. The lab has stairs, ramps, and various terrains for stability and balancing training during ambulation.
Step Down Program
Once you complete your physical therapy, it is important that you continue your Home Exercise Program. We are committed to helping you do just that. Our Step Down program is designed to give you the tools you need to be successful.
Upon completion of your physical therapy program you can utilize the outpatient clinic equipment. Our PT tech will be there to help answer questions that you have about the clinic. And our therapist can advise you if you need to return to a formal physical therapy program.
There is no charge for this service. Our goal is to help you maintain your optimal functional ability once you’ve completed therapy.

Inpatient Physical Therapy
Our inpatient physical therapy team will work with you to improve strength, motion, balance and regain function during your hospital stay. Our goal is to help you reach your best functional ability.
Swing bed Rehabilitation
When recovering from an illness, surgery, stroke or accident you may need additional rehabilitation services before returning to your home environment safely.
Our swing bed program is a level of hospitalization care for patients who may need further rehabilitation when they are ready to leave the acute care level of a hospital stay, but is not yet well enough to return home safely.
You can complete your rehabilitation in our swing bed program even if you have been hospitalized at another facility. A care manager from that facility will help you transfer to Herington Hospital to further your care.
