Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

Our spinal cord injury treatment focuses on mobility, so patients can go far in life.

When we look into the eyes of a patient with a spinal cord injury, we see their desire to improve. Our spinal cord injury rehabilitation program helps patients regain their independence and reach their maximum potential, while alleviating many worries for their family.

Spinal cord injuries impact each patient in a different way. So, every treatment plan must be personalized.

Spinal cord injury rehabilitation begins after a patient is medically stable following a spinal cord injury (SCI) where the body may experience a complete or partial loss of motor functioning due to a severed or partially damaged spinal cord.

Because each patient’s pre-injury lifestyle is distinctive, their recovery goals must be individualized. The HealthBridge difference stems from our team of experienced doctors, nurses and therapists who implement active, individualized care plans that concentrate on improving a patient’s functionality and mobility. Treatment may include teaching patients how to maneuver a wheelchair in a store, prepare meals, or bathe with little-to-no outside assistance. Throughout our SCI rehabilitation program, they gain more than just increased mobility. They gain greater independence and confidence to help them reach their recovery goals.
