Spinal Cord Injury

  • Recovery from a spinal cord injury (SCI) involves significant challenges for patients and families. At Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital, we understand the challenges you face, and together, we will help you set goals, learn new skills, modify your lifestyle to fit your needs, and help you achieve the very best outcome. We provide the earliest possible start to rehabilitation and work to optimize the abilities and independence of our patients so that they
    may return home.

    This goal-directed approach enables patients to:

    • Improve physical function and mobility
    • Develop the skills and strategies to perform daily activities
    • Utilize adaptive technologies that facilitate activities at home, at work, and/or in the community
    • Overcome the psychological and social problems that often interfere with adjustment to life ahead


    As required by Joint Commission and CARF, we collect, track and analyze data for our Spinal Cord Injury program to allow for continued performance improvement and program development. If you have questions or want to know more, please speak to our member of our staff.
