Linda and Henry Haller Physical Therapy Center Now Open  
Holy Cross Hospital recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate a donation of $500,000 from the Haller Foundation, bestowed by Linda Haller, to renovate the hospital's intensive rehabilitation unit (IRU) with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

The Ft. Lauderdale based, non-profit hospital's new Linda and Henry Haller Physical Therapy Center is located on the 48-bed, inpatient rehabilitation unit that provides care for individuals recovering from serious conditions that affect their daily functioning and independence, such as stroke, brain dysfunction, neurological impairments including Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), spinal cord dysfunction, amputation, orthopedic disorders, cardiac and pulmonary disorders, and trauma, among other disabling impairments. Intensive therapy intervention is delivered seven days a week by a group of highly skilled therapists and board-certified physiatrists.
  Boca Raton Regional Hospital Offering New Techniques to Treat Tendon and Joint Disorders
Boca Raton Regional Hospital is now offering regenerative medicine therapy for orthopedic patients undergoing rehabilitation for conditions of the tendons, bone and peripheral joints - especially osteoarthritis of the knee. The treatment centers around the use of the body's natural healing process to stimulate healing, diminish pain and restore natural function in the affected area.

According to Joshua Rothenberg, DO, and Director of Regenerative Medicine at the Hospital, the therapies are showing great promise and often enable patients to recover more quickly and obtain better pain relief from their musculoskeletal injury or disability.

"I employ regenerative medicine as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program that is focused on the strengthening of the musculoskeletal system. While the field is still relatively new, we know that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself from injury...we're simply using what nature has provided to the patient's advantage," he said.
