The Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan’s (RIM) Center for Spinal Cord Injury Recovery®  is a unique, internationally renowned setting where innovation is our focus and recovery is our goal. A place where “thinking outside the box” and “the sky’s the limit” are not just catch-phrases, but the foundation of our program.

Not all spinal cord injuries are alike, nor are all rehabilitation programs the same. Therefore, choosing the right rehabilitation program for someone with a spinal cord injury can make all the difference in the world.

RIM offers the region’s most comprehensive approach to spinal cord injury rehabilitation.

Our commitment to excellence in SCI rehabilitation is reflected in our accreditation by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) as a Spinal Cord Specialty Program.  RIM is the only Free-Standing Rehabilitation Hospital in southeast Michigan with this specialty accreditation.

But what makes RIM’s SCI program truly unique is that it addresses the entire spectrum of rehabilitation care for spinal cord injury. The program has four distinct phases. Click on the links below to learn more about each phase.
