Spinal Cord Injury Program
Our Spinal Cord Injury Program provides a comprehensive range of therapeutic services to patients who have suffered such injuries, all customized to meet a patient’s individual needs and goals.
Sage Rehabilitation Outpatient/Day Neuro Program offers comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation for people recovering from traumatic and non-traumatic spinal cord injuries.
Outpatient therapy allows patients to continue to participate in intensive rehabilitation while living at home, problem-solve issues encountered in the real world, and immediately practice and apply skills learned during therapy in their home and community.
