Neurological Rehabilitation Program

SCI clinicOur Neurological Rehabilitation program aims to help those affected by a disease or injury to an individuals’ neurological system.  Our physicians are specialists in rehabilitation of neurological conditions such as stroke, spinal cord disease/trauma, and brain injury.  Our physicians are part of a greater team consisting of physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, neuropsychologists and more.  With our team-based approach, our goal is to optimize your physical and cognitive wellbeing so that you can achieve the highest level of independence.  

Some of the conditions we manage include:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal Cord disease or injury
  • Moderate to Severe Brain injury
  • Spasticity (muscle stiffness)
  • Peripheral nerve disease (neuropathy)

Our treatment may consist of physical or occupational therapy, medicine prescription, modalities, orthotics / bracing, speech and language therapy, or neuropsychology and referrals to other disciplines when needed. 

Our clinicians are compassionate, caring and skilled to encourage our patients to achieve their highest potential in their rehabilitation and advocate for themselves as they recover and adjust to their new life challenges.
