Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation Program
Different types of strokes and neurological disorders can affect different centers of the brain such as motor control, speech and language, and bowel and bladder function. Regardless of your type of stroke or disease process, the Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation Program can work with you to help you gain function and mobility. You will be working on such skills as walking, talking, swallowing, activities of daily living, and safety. Your team will also help train your family members or caregivers to help you after you return home.
Brain Injury Program
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program has a dedicated team of professionals who specialize in brain injury rehabilitation and who will create a program just for you. You will be working on such skills as walking, talking, safety, judgment, reasoning, patterning, and many other cognitive skills. Each patient is different, and some progress more rapidly than others based upon the severity of the injury and location of the injury in the brain. Some patients may progress for a few days and then it may seem that they slow down for a few days. This is a common pattern in the course of recovery. Your team of therapists and nurses will work with your family members by helping them understand what is common for a patient recovering from a brain injury.
Spinal Cord Injury Program
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, approximately 450,000 people live with SCI in the US. The Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program has a team of dedicated professionals specializing in spinal cord injury. Whether you have a complete cord injury or an incomplete cord injury, our team of specialists work with you to maximize your function and independence. Your rehabilitation team will address issues such as: activities of daily living, mobility, bowel and bladder training, sexuality, skin integrity, diet and exercise. Your family and caregivers are encouraged to become involved in therapy treatments to become familiar with your needs once you go home.
Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program
The Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program specializes in rehabilitation for the orthopedic patient with additional concerns such as high blood pressure, history of stroke, cardiac disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, age-related deconditioning, and/or arthritis. Of course, you may still be appropriate for an inpatient program with less serious health considerations. You may have age related concerns that may prevent you from returning home safely, or you may be younger with multiple bone fractures or complicated fractures, such as those to the pelvis. During inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation, you work to return to your desired level of independence through improved strength, improved joint range of motion, assisted or unassisted walking, self-care training and pain management. Team members work with you to meet these goals while managing medical problems, gauging progress and prescribing medications, equipment and orthotic devices.
