Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

Choosing a rehabilitation partner after spinal cord injury is a very important decision. You and your family must be confident about the quality of care provided, the expertise and professionalism of the staff, and the availability of advanced technology. It is important that the program you choose is uniquely tailored to your needs.


Rehabilitation may begin in the hospital, before you start a structured program. Because all of our rehabilitation facilities are attached to hospitals you have access to specialists, tests, emergency care, and intensive care if necessary.

As you gain more strength and skills, you may need a comprehensive interdisciplinary plan with intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy modifying the plan, if needed. In some cases a slower start may be needed, with less therapy per day until you ‘ramp up' to more activity.
