Personalized Spinal Cord Injury Treatment
Depending on your injury, we will design an individualized spinal cord Injury treatment plan just for you, which may include physical, speech, exercise and/or occupational therapies. We offer many unique and innovative treatment options including:
- Recreational therapy – community outings, such as going shopping or to the beach, which allow you to practice everyday activities alongside your physical or occupational therapist. These sessions are available to you on an individual or group basis.
- Determination Drive – a realistic, simulated community environment that offers an innovative way for you to practice life skills—right here at our facility.
- Vector Gait and Safety System – a robotic rehabilitation system for patients with advanced rehabilitation needs. We were the first in South Florida to offer this technology to our patients.
