The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department offers comprehensive services to patients that have sustained a spinal cord injury. This includes services during the acute hospital stay, inpatient rehabilitation, and outpatient rehabilitation. Our program addresses the complexity of spinal cord injury including paraplegia, tetraplegia, bowel and bladder dysfunction, and spasticity.
Our goal is to begin early intervention to optimize a patient's independence at home and in the community. We strive to improve physical function, mobility, and activities of daily living through the use of strategies, skills and adaptive technology. Education is provided throughout the rehabilitation process to patients and family members to maximize recovery and general health. Support will also be provided by psychologists and social workers to address any emotional, cognitive or adjustment needs.A physician's referral is required for evaluation and treatment within this program.
