Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation



    The Section of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) of Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital Tainan Branch has its beginning in the 1990’s and has remained a comprehensive health care provider in Tainan. Our professional team are composed of three doctors, eleven physical therapists, one physical therapy assistant, eight occupational therapists, two speech therapists, one secretary, and two case managers. We offer quality medical care and rehabilitation for patients with various disabilities. Over the past twenty years, we have developed treatment programs in specialties such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, musculoskeletal, return to work, chronic pain, and sports injury. We also provide consultation and diagnostic services with a variety of technologic examinations. Each patient here is evaluated by a physiatrist, who then works with the referring physician and the rehabilitation team to design and implement individualized plan of care. The evaluation includes functional assessment, evaluation for adaptive equipment, contracture prevention, skin management, bowel/bladder education and training, and prognosis of ultimate outcome. With the participation of the patients and their family, our physicians and therapists work as a team to assist those living with disabilities to achieve functional independence and a better quality of life.

The occupational therapist designs personal-made functional activities for every patient according to the occupational evaluations.
