Porterville Convalescent - Services
Specializing in Rehabilitation & Post-Acute Care

"We help restore independence."

State-of-the-Art Therapeutic Equipment Helps Elite Athletes and Residents at Porterville Convalescent!

Porterville Convalescent partners with Accelerated Care Plus (ACP) to help residents recover quicker with less pain.  ACP's physical therapy equipment was first initiated to provide superior outcomes to elite athletes.  The same equipment that helps elite athletes heal and maximize performance also addresses the many complexities of aging adults. 

Today, ACP is the equipment of choice for many professional and collegiate sports teams as well as many progressive rehab providers for seniors. 

The medical devices used in ACPs programs are called Therapeutic Modalities.  These proven devices used at Porterville Convalescent include...

Electrotherapy... gentle electrical stimulation to assist in the treatment of pain, edema (swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in the body's tissues), muscle re-education, muscle disuse atrophy and wound healing.

Therapeutic Ultrasound... high frequency sound waves to promote thermal and sub-thermal heating to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation to assist in the treatment of pain, edema, contractures (a tightening of muscles that prevent normal movement) and wounds.

Active Assist Motorized Rehabilitation Cycling System... "Power assist" exercise therapy for post-acute patients who may not typically be able to participate in therapeutic exercises due to a lack-of-strength, coordination, paralysis and other conditions. 

By decreasing pain, inflammation and edema, Therapeutic Modalities increase a patients comfort and tolerance to treatment.  This enables our highly qualified rehabilitation professionals to introduce earlier, more aggressive therapy interventions to help maximize performance and improve recovery.
