Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation
Clinical expertise distinguishes our comprehensive Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program. Through individualized care, advanced treatment and state-of-the-science technologies, we address the complex challenges of spinal cord injury, including:
- Respiratory management
- Spasticity management
- Wheelchair and mobility issues
- Electronic aids of daily living
- Community reintegration and support services
Patients at Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital benefit from around the clock nursing care and a minimum of three (3) hours of therapy Monday through Friday, and on weekends as appropriate. Our rehabilitation team balances hands-on care with high-tech treatment – such as body weight supported locomotor training and Functional Electrical Stimulation – to effectively address individual challenges. Progress is carefully monitored and treatment is modified accordingly.
