What is Outpatient Rehabilitation?
Outpatient rehabilitation is the process where a patient travels to a clinic or hospital to attend sessions of treatment, which usually last between 30 minutes to an hour.
If your physician recommends an outpatient rehabilitation program, then it means you are progressing enough to be at home and your physician is confident you will successfully complete your therapy through outpatient rehabilitation.
Available Outpatient Rehabilitation Services

Our cccupational therapy program is designed to help patients receive the assistance they need to lead independent and productive lives.
Our occupational therapists work with patients using “occupations” of work, care, and leisure to increase independence and strengthen development.
Speech therapy helps patients focus on receptive language. This means focusing and understanding the words spoken to you. Practicing expressive language is also used, which is the ability to express oneself through words.
Speech therapy is often used after a traumatic accident or stroke.
Aquatic therapy is used to rehabilitate patients after injury or those with chronic illness.
Aquatic therapy can make exercise easier and less painful. Water is also relaxing and helps relieve tight muscles, and stimulates blood flow.
Aquatic therapy is ideal for patients with arthritis, joint pain, chronic back pain, spinal cord injuries, or those who have suffered a stroke.
