Providing Support, Building Confidence

A disabling injury or illness can create lifestyle changes and cause frustrating setbacks. No matter if you were injured at work or playing sports or if you are recovering from major injury or illness, the Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at the George Washington University Hospital can help.

To contact the Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, please call 202-715-5655.

As a patient, you will receive individualized therapy from highly skilled physical, occupational and speech therapists, all in the comfort of more than 7,000 square feet of beautifully designed and naturally lit space. At GW Hospital, we focus on patients' abilities - not their disabilities - to instill the confidence they need to achieve their maximum level of independence.

Outpatient Therapy Services are integral to the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with functional limitation or loss resulting from disability, disease or injury. Patients at The Outpatient Rehabilitation Center are treated for common therapy diagnoses.

AlterG® Treadmill

The AlterG Treadmill allows for ultra-low impact running using differential air pressure (DAP) technology. This enables you to lower the impact of your body weight by up to 80 percent, which will decrease joint stress and allow a faster return to running with less risk of re-injury. The AlterG can accelerate the return to running after surgery by allowing an earlier initiation of conditioning and endurance training. It can be used in the treatment of orthopedic and neurological impairments to get people moving sooner, faster and more effectively.
