Orthopedics – Hand & Wrist

I have a very good doctor that I can recommend. His name is Dr. George Alber. I just went to see him a few days ago. I could hardly move my wrist; that is how bad it hurts. He really can do this Cortisone shots. A lot of them cannot so you get left with nothing. With him, you always know that he is going to hit the exact spot. The last time he did one was seven years ago and I have not had any pain since then. I did not have to take any medication either. He also gave me something for my wrist, one of those brace supports, and he even did an x-ray in his office.

National Occupational Therapy Month

NovaCare Rehabilitation Thanks and Celebrates

Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapist Assistants

Join NovaCare Rehabilitation as we celebrate National Occupational Therapy Month (NOTM)! NOTM is hosted by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) each April to recognize how occupational therapists and occupational therapist assistants help transform society by restoring and improving motion in people’s lives.

Occupational therapists help individuals achieve independence and regain function following trauma or disability. Their specialized training enables them to assess patients, establish individualized treatment plans and rehabilitate patients to achieve optimal function.

On any given day, a therapist may be helping a child with disabilities participate in school and social situations, assisting a person recovering from injuries regain skills or aiding an older adult stay as independent as possible. Join NovaCare Rehabilitation as we celebrate these everyday heroes not only throughout the month of April, but year-round!

“At NovaCare Rehabilitation, April marks a time to honor the occupational therapists and occupational therapist assistants who help our patients get back to the things they enjoy. Our therapy team is dedicated to providing an exceptional patient care experience that promotes healing and recovery in a compassionate environment. Thanks for improving quality of life for our patients today and every day.”

Total Left Knee Replacement Surgery at Shore Medical Center

SMC ellen-jonesSMC logo

Dear Shore,
After 25 years working on my feet at a local supermarket and meniscus surgery on both knees, normal wear and tear had made getting around increasingly difficult. I had received cortisone shots to relieve the pain in my left knee, but began having such a hard time going up and down stairs that I knew that something had to be done.

In consultation with Dr. Zabinski, I scheduled my total left knee replacement surgery at Shore Medical Center. It was my first time at Shore, and from start to finish I had a wonderful experience. I began by attending one of Shore’s joint replacement education classes, and am glad I did. I learned valuable information that I was able to use, not only while I was at the medical center, but also when I’d returned home after surgery. My visit for pre-admission testing was very quick and easy, and my surgery and recovery could not have gone more smoothly. After my surgery, I was up and moving around the same day. Everyone was pleasant and attentive. I went home the next day, and the whole experience was much easier than I had anticipated.
