Carrus Rehabilitation Hospital
Oftentimes, we and our loved ones encounter injuries or treatments that take a significant time to heal. These conditions can include bone fractures, joint replacement surgeries, or nerve damage. Rehabilitation centers help patients recover from these injuries in a supervised environment. Carrus Rehabilitation Hospital provides a safe and supportive healing space where patients can thrive during their rehabilitation, and it is just the right rehab for you or your loved ones.
Our 24-bed rehabilitation facility is located on the beautiful Carrus Health medical campus in Sherman, Texas. The rehab hospital is equipped to provide patients with advanced medical care while they are receiving physician-supervised rehabilitation therapies. This includes daily physician visits and around-the-clock nursing and respiratory care. Because every patient’s situation is unique, each rehabilitation care plan is customized to meet a patient’s specific needs and goals.
Our Physical Rehabilitation Services and Specialties
Carrus rehabilitation teams are led by a board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician. Patients also receive comprehensive care from other rehab experts, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists. A pharmacist, social worker, case manager, and our specialized rehabilitation nursing staff round out the professional team that you can trust with your loved one’s rehabilitation.
Specific services offered by our physical, occupational, and speech therapists include:
- Activities of daily life (ADL) retraining
- Cognitive retraining
- Fall prevention
- Gait training and transfer
- Medication management
- Mobility improvement
- Occupational therapy
- Pain control
- Physical therapy
- Seating and positioning techniques
- Speech & language therapy
- Strength training
- Swallowing disorder therapy and management
Physical therapy (PT) helps patients regain their independence through improved mobility and strength. PT can be especially beneficial after surgery, or when a chronic disease makes healing difficult.
The physical therapists at Carrus will first assess a patient’s strength, endurance, range of motion, gait, and any sensory deficits. Using this information, they will create a customized rehabilitation program aimed at helping patients regain control over their motor and sensory abilities.
With physical therapy, patients can:
- Regain or improve the use of their body
- Learn compensatory strategies to minimize physical challenges
- Engage in specially designed exercise programs to help retain newly learned skills

Much like physical therapy, the goal of occupational therapy (OT) is to improve a patient’s motor and sensory abilities. However, OT specifically helps patients relearn skills needed to perform daily activities such as personal grooming, preparing meals, and house cleaning.
Occupational therapists often teach people to break down a complex activity into parts, practice each part, and then perform the whole sequence of actions. This strategy can improve coordination and is often used to help patients – especially those who have suffered a stroke – relearn how to perform everyday tasks.
Our OTs also teach patients how to develop strategies to modify their environment, so their daily activities are not restricted. For example, people with the use of only one hand can substitute Velcro closures for buttons on clothing.
In addition, occupational therapists can address at-home safety with patients and their families by recommending changes to help prevent falls or other accidents (for example, by removing certain barriers or installing assistive devices such as grab bars in bathrooms).

At Carrus Rehabilitation Hospital, speech therapy helps our patients:
- Speak clearly. Carrus speech-language pathologists are often called to help stroke patients relearn how to use language or develop alternative means of communication. Language disorders addressed include difficulty remembering words to losing the ability to speak, read, or write.
- Improve cognitive function. A stroke or other health condition can impair a patient’s cognitive function. Language rehabilitation specialists at Carrus use a variety of specialized therapeutic techniques to assist patients with comprehension.
- Address swallowing difficulties. Speech-language therapy may be used to address swallowing problems. Our therapists may use noninvasive imaging techniques to study a patient’s swallowing patterns to identify the exact source of the impairment. Then, our therapists will work with patients to devise strategies to overcome or minimize the deficit.
- Develop problem-solving strategies. Speech-language therapy also helps patients develop problem-solving strategies and social skills to cope with the long-term effects of language disorders. This may include the use of symbol boards or sign language.
- Improve conversations. Conversational coaching and rehearsal, as well as the use of prompts or cues to remember specific words, may also benefit Carrus Rehabilitation Hospital patients.
