Spinal Cord Injury Program
Our interdisciplinary team treats all levels of spinal cord injury through its continuum of care including ventilator management and weaning, therapy and rehabilitation, pain management and community re-entry. An individualized treatment plan is designed for you based on the level of your injury and your specific needs. Both inpatient and outpatient services are available.
How We Treat
Treating your spinal cord injury often includes physical and occupational therapy, bowel and bladder management training, respiratory system improvement, and working with our multidisciplinary team to get the education and skills you need to transition home or to further care. We work with a variety of vendors for individual customized medical equipment needs and will assist you and family to find what is best for you. Our goal is to return you to the community with a greater independence and confidence to live your life fully.
Individual and group recreational activities are offered as well as occupational, speech and language, and physical therapy as needed.
If you require a ventilator, or other breathing device, we work to manage your ventilator or wean you from your dependence when possible.
We help you resolve personal, social, or psychological problems and difficulties as you work to overcome your injury and adjust to your new lifestyle.
Skin care management is important for wound healing and is specifically tailored to your needs.
