The spinal cord injury rehab team at Allied Rehab Hospital works in developing individualized treatment plans and training formats aimed at assessing patient risk, promoting functional gains and teaching the patient/family effective coping skills for life after discharge from rehab.
After doing a thorough evaluation, the team establishes realistic goals, and works as a cohesive unit delivering care that addresses each patient’s unique medical and personal needs. In addition to traditional rehabilitation techniques, patients may participate in the latest technological advancements in spinal cord rehabilitation care including neuromuscular electrical stimulation, aquatic therapy, body-weight supported treadmill training, and computerized biofeedback. Along with the latest technology, Allied Rehab provides the necessary training in self care and mobility skills, nutrition and psychological support to assist patients with personal independence.
