Rehabilitation begins in the hospital for some persons served. When requested by your physician, therapists will come to you for an individual assessment.
We offer a variety of programs that deal with physical problems that interfere with a person’s normal activities.
We help individuals who have had a stroke, many of whom experience a wide range of impairments, including paralysis of weakness of one side of the body, difficulty swallowing or speaking and thinking clearly.
We use a holistic approach, teaching people with limb loss to be more self-sufficient and to adjust to a different lifestyle.
To help people recover from orthopedic (joint and bone) injuries, we focus on goals to achieve maximum function.
Our team serves children birth to age 18 who require intensive inpatient rehabilitation for a variety of reasons.
Brain injury program
Because brain injury may cause cognitive problems and physical impairments, we develop a comprehensive plan to promote independence.
Spinal cord system of care
Your spinal cord sends messages from your brain to your body. When the spinal cord is injured, you may experience problems with movement and feeling. We create a plan, evaluate the need for assistive technology and help persons served adjust to living with an injury.
Comprehensive Vocational Evaluation Program
We provide an assessment of your work and daily living skills to help you make choices about your future.
If persons served are well enough to function at home, they may come to us for outpatient treatments.
Pediatric rehabilitation services
Outpatient services for persons served, birth to age 18.
|Wellness rehabilitation services
Orthopedic, musculoskeletal and aquatic therapies are offered on an outpatient basis at the Vidant Wellness Center.
General neurological rehabilitation
We take a holistic approach to treatment to meet the individual needs of each person served and his or her family.
We strive to provide pain relief, prevent dysfunction and avoid recurrence of injury in persons served with orthopedic problems.
Rehabilitation is a big field. Here are other special services we offer:
