Brain injury recovery
Brain injury rehabilitation can help patients relearn certain skills or functions so they can regain independence. Depending on the type of brain injury you have, you may need rehabilitation to help with memory problems, coordination, self-care or psychological issues.
Spinal cord injury recovery
Rehabilitation is an important part of spinal cord injury treatment and recovery. Spinal cord rehabilitation helps patients regain mobility and independence.
We provide rehabilitation for all types of spinal cord injuries and conditions, including:
- Recovery from spinal surgeries, such as laminectomies, tumor removals and side effects of spinal cord injuries
- Spinal cord conditions, such as spinal muscle atrophy, quadriplegia, paraplegia and spondylosis/stenosis
- Spinal viruses, such as traverse myelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, encephalitis and polio
- Congenital abnormalities, such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy
A stroke happens when blood flow to the brain becomes blocked or interrupted. Brain tissue can die when the brain doesn't get enough blood, which affects certain functions, such as movement and speech. Our expert team provides fast, lifesaving stroke care, and we begin stroke rehabilitation as soon as possible to help improve your recovery.
