A Hemophilia Physical Therapy Solution

Physical therapy is a key component of overall hemophilia management.

Strengthening muscles and joints can improve mobility, flexibility, balance, physical fitness and everyday functional ability. Physical therapists can also teach about the early recognition of musculoskeletal bleeding complications, conservative methods to manage current bleeds and strategies to prevent future bleeds.

[REBUILD] has completely changed my life for the better. I do not get nearly as many bleeds.

REBUILD is a leading-edge collaborative care program designed to enhance physical therapy services and promote positive therapy outcomes for people with hemophilia. With REBUILD, we recognize that:

  • People with hemophilia have a rare disorder, with unique challenges from musculoskeletal bleeding.
  • Physical therapy care must be customized, keeping hemophilia in mind.
  • Most community physical therapists do not receive specialized training about hemophilia.

It is our mission to partner with people who have hemophilia and their physical therapists to provide the education, support and collaborative connection that facilitates successful therapy outcomes.

REBUILD’s physical therapist can collaborate with your hemophilia treatment center (HTC), HTC physical therapist and/or other local therapist to support you and promote a customized physical therapy approach.

I went from hardly being able to go up stairs to being able to do anything that I wanted pretty much. It’s basically changed my whole life. I’m very grateful for it. It’s helped me quit smoking too.
