Outpatient Medical Clinic

In our outpatient clinic, physiatrists provide evaluations, periodic follow-ups, and medical management of chronic spinal cord injuries and paralysis. The focus is to minimize and prevent medical complications. Transition of care from pediatric to adult specialists is accomplished seamlessly, providing lifelong follow-up and health promotion.

Outpatient Therapy Program

Our medically supervised outpatient therapy program has two unique therapy options for individuals with chronic spinal cord dysfunction.

Short-term intensive therapy: In this five-day-a-week, medically supervised program patients attend therapy for two to three weeks and receive a minimum of three hours of therapy each day. Patients will benefit from this program’s intensive, multi-disciplinary evaluation and short-term intensive treatment. The goal is to help patients develop and transition into home-based care and to improve independence and maintain muscular and cardiovascular function. This program is convenient for out-of-state patients and families.

Extended intensive therapy: In this medically supervised program patients attend therapy one to three times per week for 8 to 12 weeks and receive a minimum of three hours of therapy per session. Patients will benefit from this program’s intensive multi-disciplinary evaluation and long-term intensive treatment. This program is convenient for local patients and families.
