Human Motion Institute Rehabilitation Services

The Human Motion Institute at Alton Memorial Hospital is a comprehensive approach to orthopedic care and rehabilitation. Services provided range from joint replacement and reconstruction to physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and sports performance.

Our goal is simple -- to return our patients to normal function as quickly and safely as possible. To reach this goal, the medical professionals of the Human Motion Institute enlist a comprehensive, leading-edge approach to the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal (bone and muscle) injuries.

Human Motion Institute surgical patients enjoy private patient rooms, pre-surgical education, flexible visiting hours for loved ones, the latest options for minimally invasive procedures and advanced pain control following surgery.

Our team of orthopedic surgeons, nurses, and physical and occupational therapists works with each patient's primary care physician to develop a treatment program specifically for that patient. We combine extensive clinical expertise with a compassionate, caring treatment philosophy to provide topnotch care. Learn about the knee joint designed just for women.
