Back on Track with Spine Camp 2018
Do you have questions about your upcoming spinal surgery, recovery or rehabilitation? Join the Presence St. Joseph Medical Center Staff for a unique program that allows the patient to take some of the mystery out of spine surgery. Physical Therapy and Nursing will discuss what to expect with your hospital experience. You will have the opportunity to meet the staff, tour the Orthopedic-Surgical floor where you will recover, learn about the equipment that is used for rehabilitation and ask questions that are important to you. Different ways to manage pain post-operatively will also be discussed.
Based on past feedback from our patients and the improved recovery of Spine Camp graduates, attendance is strongly recommended. Patients who attend Spine Camp prior to a spinal surgery typically achieve better outcomes and quicker recoveries.
Spine Camp is offered on weekdays, evenings, and selected weekends. Pre-admission testing will work with you to to find an opportunity to attend a Spine Camp that best meets your needs at a convenient time and date. For additional information, call the Joint Camp Hotline at 815.741.7656. Please leave your name, phone number and nature of your surgery. Your call will be returned within 48 hours and your privacy will be protected.
