Comprehensive Services

St. David’s Rehabilitation is an integral part of the St. David’s Neuroscience & Spine Institute and the Spinal Cord Injury Program. Our patients have immediate access to spinal cord injury specialists and technologies.

Program goals include:

  • Assist with the re-establishment of independence
  • Promote physical and psychological well-being
  • Provide interactive education that addresses life-long needs
  • Minimize risk factors for medical complications through the promotion of healthy lifestyles
  • Provide information about community resources
  • Provide information about health education
  • Meet adaptive equipment needs for mobility and comfort

The program is under the direction of a board certified physiatrist (also known as a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician) who specializes in spinal cord injury. This physician works with a team of rehabilitation physicians who have expertise in neurological rehabilitation. In addition to the physicians, our spinal cord injury-dedicated team provides:

  • Inpatient Rehabilitation (three locations)
  • Neurological Day Program (two locations)
  • Outpatient Rehabilitation

A full continuum of Rehabilitative Care

  • Speech and Language Therapy

Our team works with patients and families to address functional and emotional needs, and help patients achieve their goals. Gaining the fullest possible recovery from a spinal cord injury may take many months. Families are encouraged to attend treatment sessions so that they may learn to care for, support and encourage the patient on his or her path to healing.

After patients complete formal rehabilitation, St. David’s offers resources to help individuals continue their progress, including individual consultations. We will remain a valuable resource for every patient who comes through our doors.
