Description

HealthSouth Rehabilitation can help you regain as much strength and movement as possible. And just as important, it helps you learn ways to function more efficiently at home, at school, at work and in the community. Our team of rehabilitative and medical specialists develops individualized treatment programs for all patients, providing the support and guidance needed to achieve the highest level of independence.

Our hospital offers highly specialized inpatient rehabilitation services. From hip fractures to joint replacements and stroke to Parkinson’s disease – our hospital has the experts, technology and experience to meet your rehabilitation needs.

With innovative treatments and an interdisciplinary team approach, our hospital remains at the leading edge of rehabilitation. This includes working with highly challenging conditions, like spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries.

Through intensive, custom-designed therapy programs, our hospital’s goal is always to return patients to leading active and independent lives.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.

Our Membership Community

Our membership community provides a lifeline for many individuals that are focused on regaining their independence and improving their quality of life––whether they are leaving rehab after sustaining a spinal cord injury, learning to live with symptoms of a spinal cord disorder, or have spent years of frustration coping with disability. We provide members guidance and resources on a variety of topics they are passionate about, such as employment, affordable housing, transportation, health care, home- and community-based independent living, education, peer support, and leisure and recreation.
