Center for neurological rehabilitation
We have a 3,000-square-foot outpatient neurological rehabilitation center to help patients recover from stroke, brain injuries or concussions. Our dedicated neurologists will work with you to restore normal function and independence while you heal.
Neurological rehab combines occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy. We will customize different aspects of these programs to create a rehabilitation plan tailored to your diagnosis.
