Upstate rehabilitation team provides individual support to patients of all ages
Patients of all ages can benefit from rehabilitation after illness or injury. Upstate physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists Robert Weber, MD, and Margaret Turk, MD, explain how each patient has unique challenges, and the goal of the rehabilitation team is to help optimize patient mobility and the ability to care for oneself. "When we are growing up, we have many years to adjust to our skills and our capabilities," explains Weber. "Someone with a sudden change because of illness or injury has to go through that process in a very truncated way. What comprehensive rehabilitation offers is the support to make that a success."
