Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

About Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

If you’ve experienced an SCI, you may be faced with rebuilding your life from the ground up. It takes only seconds for a spinal cord injury to change your life, and while at times it may seem insurmountable, it doesn’t mean that you should give up hope. Recovering from an SCI is so much more than physical rehabilitation. You have to learn how to adapt to your surroundings and find your new normal. Putting the pieces back together can be hard at times, but our SCI team is experienced at restoring as much function as possible in order to maximize your independence and quality of life.

Our Approach to Your SCI Rehab

For more than a quarter of a century, we’ve treated patients with spinal cord injury (SCI)* to help increase independence and quality of life. Following injury, we immediately start an intensive physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy regimen that is designed to maximize your potential outcome. Spinal cord injuries are often complex and require the highest level of specialized care. Our team of SCI rehabilitation professionals will provide you with the tools and support you need to restore your independence. Overseeing every patient are board-certified physicians who specialize in spinal cord injury. We incorporate rehabilitation technologies, assistive walking devices, SCI education and a multitude of services specific to spinal cord injury patients.

 

*Most Spinal Cord Injury Patients will need to be admitted to Baylor Scott & White Rehab - Dallas.



SCI Program By The Numbers


 

Finding My New Normal

A motorcycle accident broke Michael Stine's shoulder blade, collar bone, ribs and arm, but it didn't break his spirit. Even after he learned that the lower-body paralysis caused by a spinal cord injury might be permanent, Michael didn't give up. Neither did we. After three and a half months of hard work, Michael was able to do a lot for himself - including driving a van. These days, he returns the favor as a certified mentor for other injured patients.
