Rush Copley’s Physical Rehabilitation Program Recognized by Newsweek

Aurora, IL – Rush Copley’s Physical Rehabilitation Center is listed among the Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers for 2020 as determined by Newsweek.

Newsweek’s inaugural list highlights the nation’s top physical rehabilitation facilities based on quality of care, quality of service, quality of follow-up care and accommodation and amenities. This award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

“Rush Copley is honored to be recognized in Newsweek’s list of Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers,” said John Diederich, president and CEO of Rush Copley Medical Center. “We are committed to excellence and continually enhancing the quality of our services. This award recognizes the quality of care and service provided to our physical rehabilitation patients.”

Rush Copley offers both inpatient and outpatient physical rehabilitation. The inpatient center with its therapy gym is designed to maximize patients’ potential as they return to independence, offering true-to-life features including an automobile to replicate daily activities. The center also uses virtual reality augmented therapy systems for individuals with physical limitations; cognitive software that provides exercises to enhance attention, reasoning memory, listening skills and cognitive processing speed; and VitalStim therapy for swallowing dysfunction which uses electrical stimulation to aid in muscle strengthening to improve swallowing.

The outpatient physical rehabilitation center provides physical therapy to address strength, balance and limited motion; concussion management; computerized dynamic posturography to assess and treat patients experiencing balance dysfunction or dizziness; vestibular rehabilitation to treat dizziness, vertigo and balance difficulties; LSVT BIG training for patients with Parkinson’s disease; sports therapy; spine rehabilitation; and more.
