Spinal Cord Rehabilitation

The rehabilitation program provides comprehensive care and treatment for people with spinal cord injuries. We help these patients and their caregivers develop skills and strategies to live productive, independent lives.

Our rehabilitation program helps patients optimize their abilities and independence. Our care team of physicians and therapists develop integrated, intensive programs to improve function and mobility, the ability to perform activities of daily living (dressing, bathing and more), and transfers and mobility.

From injury to follow-up care, we offer a complete continuum of rehabilitative care, including education and training to address life-long challenges faced by spinal cord-injured patients.
