What does your rehab look like?

Our approach to rehab is centered on the patient. You’ll get individualized one-on-one therapy, tailored to your unique injury and needs. Depending on the seriousness of your injury, rehab can be really difficult, and so we also offer peer mentorship to help you through the most challenging times. It’s a program built for your needs.

When your rehab program ends, we stay with you. Getting reacquainted with the world can be the most challenging part, so we offer preparation to return home, to school or to work. And because you’ll be leaning on family and friends for support, we offer training for families and caregivers with a class focused on your return home.

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.
