Recovering from a hip or knee replacement or surgery following a fracture can be challenging. Wauconda Care is an ideal place to take the next step in your recovery.

Wauconda Care’s Orthopedic Recovery Team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, wound care nurses and our on-site physiatrist (a doctor who specializes in rehabilitation). Your clinical team will work closely with your orthopedic surgeon to follow his or her protocols for an optimal recovery. Our goal is to send you home with endurance, strength and a full range of motion.

Our state of the art Therapy Gym is the perfect place to rebuild your strength and endurance.  Encouraging therapists will help you expand your range of motion and increase your number of steps.  In addition, they will help you operate the most advanced therapy equipment including a Virtual Reality experience.  Weights, treadmills and reclining bikes build strength.  The parallel bars and mat equipment will help build balance.
