    Default Physical Therapy

    I've got a friend that suffered an injury to her hand that will probably require physical therapy. Does anyone have any experience in the PC/Bavaro area with this? She's making inquiries herself but asked if I would post something here.

    i would check any private clinic in the area and ask local orthopedists. they should have a team they normally work with. good luck.

    I recommend:
    Flavio Acuña in Los Corales, Bávaro - I think he is a trained physiotherapist as well as an alternative practitioner.
    http://www.spa-puntacana.com/

    Eric Maya at Punta Cana Doctors in Punta Cana Village is a physiotherapist.

    I don't know of any orthopaedic surgeons locally, if you find one please post the information here.

    Try to find out if there is a Centro de Rehabilitación in the area. I understand they are all over the country. They provide all types of physiotherapy at a very low cost.

    in POP centro de rehabilitación is a part of a public hospital so maybe check any public health institutions in PC area as well?

    The only public health institution in the PC area is the Verón Clinic and they are unlikely to offer such a specialised service. Would have to try Higuey where we have the nearest public hospital and specialist centres like dermatology.

    Otherwise La Romana, which is just as easy and quick to get to on the new highway.

    This doctor in La Romana looks promising:
    Republica Dominicana Santo Domingo Dr. Badia Ortopeda ciruga de la mano #1 Cirujano de Mano La Romana, Casa de Campo, Port of Prince Mdico Ortopeda Experto en Codo Dolor de Mueca Mano Dormida Lesiones Deportivas Artrtis

    There is a private clinic in Higuey:
    Centro de Ortopedia y Especialidades Dr Quevedo,
    809-554-6330
    Jose Ramon Payan esq. Calle Santiago,
    Higuey
