Stay Connected to RHI for Your Ongoing Health & Wellness
Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana (RHI) understands the need to stay connected to experts that know you and understand your health and physical needs. The Wellness Program at RHI fills the gap of completion of outpatient therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and returning to your everyday activities. The program helps you stay connected with RHI staff, facilities, and equipment that will help keep you moving. By joining one of our Wellness Programs, the RHI team will continue to support your long-term health goals.
Start or continue your wellness journey with any of the following programs:
Who: Designed for people who have finished outpatient therapy or who have a very high deductible and would still like to continue working towards mobility goals. All neurological diagnoses are welcome.
What: TRACTION is a self-pay program consisting of one-hour training sessions. Sessions will be tailored to your personal goals and will focus on the kinds of tasks you wish to be able to perform, all while working at high intensities to promote neurological improvements. Training consists of high-intensity walking, if goals are for walking, or other high-intensity functional activities. A clearance from a physician is required to start the program.
When: 1-hour sessions currently scheduled Monday-Thursday afternoons. The initial evaluation may last up to 2 hours and includes baseline walking, balance, and endurance testing as appropriate. Reassessments will occur after 12 training sessions, and the ultimate goal is to get you to a point that you are able to participate in the types of activities you wish to participate in and continue an exercise program at home. If after 12 sessions you feel you have not met these goals, you may enroll again pending availability in the program.

RHI's swimming pool, located at the Eagle Highlands facility, is available for low-impact exercise through the Aquatic Program. Individuals who are limited by pain, decreased joint range of motion, or diminished strength, often benefit from aquatic therapy and exercise. RHI offers a variety of aquatic services. After a thorough evaluation, a physical therapist may determine that you could benefit from aquatic therapy either alone or in conjunction with other treatment. The therapist will work with you one-on-one in the pool for several sessions. After successful completion of the therapy, you may want to enroll in the aquatic program.

This specific therapy helps to restore the circulation with its natural healing properties to the cellular level.
Pfrimmer: Deep Muscle Therapy® establishes a foundation for corrective massage upon which other trouble-shooting techniques may be added. It has been proven valuable in prevention as well as correction of many serious muscle conditions. Because of its positive benefits to all of the body's soft tissue, it may be described as the most comprehensive form of corrective body work available today.
