Promoting recovery to help you return to your busy life

Rehabilitation at Anna Jaques Hospital

Surgery, injuries or other serious conditions can slow you down. They also can make it hard to complete certain tasks on your own.

At Anna Jaques Hospital, our rehabilitation experts and therapists help you recover from illness, injury or surgery. The goal of our rehabilitation center is to help you regain your independence.

Our Therapy Services

We offer a wide selection of physical medicine and rehabilitation services, including:

Physical Therapy and Specialty Rehab Services

Our therapists are highly trained and experienced. They frequently attend continuing education courses so they can offer you the latest treatment techniques and rehabilitation services. Anna Jaques therapists treat conditions in a wide range of areas, including:
Aquatic Therapy

We offer aquatic therapy in the warm water pool of the YWCA of Greater Newburyport at 13 Market Street in Newburyport. The supportive and resistive properties of water allow safe and effective therapy to maximize your muscle and joint function.

Cardiac Rehab

If you’ve had a heart attack, had stents placed or have another cardiovascular condition, your cardiologist may recommend cardiac rehabilitation to help you safely return to activity and stay healthy.

Lymphedema Therapy

This is excessive swelling of one or two arms or legs frequently associated with cancer treatment. Experienced therapists treat this condition with appropriate therapeutic techniques including massage, compression bandaging and exercise.
