Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is a key component of the treatment plan for patients recovering from neurological disease or trauma. The primary goal of neurological rehabilitation is to help patients attain the highest level of a functional independence through Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Pathology and nutrition.

Our rehabilitation team is available on-site to work with patients. We offer patients the benefit of a multidisciplinary team who will diagnose impaired functionality and develop a plan to help restore function. They are highly experienced in working with patients recovering from a wide variety of medical conditions including stroke, brain trauma, spinal cord injury/disease, neuromuscular disease and movement disorders. For all therapies, we believe the key to success is the involvement of the patient and family/caregiver in the rehabilitation process.

Developing a Rehabilitation Plan

The Rehabilitation Team may perform a variety of assessments to determine your functional independence. Based on these assessments, we will design a customized rehabilitation treatment plan for the patient. You can expect the following:

  • Involvement in your treatment plan to help you reach your full potential.
  • A program to help you rebuild your strength, balance and mobility
  • A program to help you regain your everyday living skills
  • A program to enhance your memory, understanding and communication
  • Education regarding the disability and rehabilitation process
  • Communication throughout the treatment with you, your doctor and your family
