Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Getting you moving again
People who have had joint replacement surgery, bone trauma, a musculoskeletal injury or a degenerative joint disease often have limited function and mobility, pain and other complications. The orthopedic rehabilitation specialists at Select Rehabilitation Hospital of Denton help individuals like you recover the skills, strength and strategies to confidently resume their daily activities.

Studies1 show those treated in a specialized rehabilitation hospital – like Select Rehabilitation Hospital of Denton – have greater improvement, fewer complications and return home sooner than patients at nursing facilities.
