Brain Injury / Concussion

Movement disorders

Other neurologic conditions

Services are offered within three different segments programming areas.

  1. Intensive Programming: The objective of our intensive program is to facilitate recovery after a neurologic insult. The most common diagnoses appropriate for this program is spinal cord injury, stroke, and brain injury. As the name eludes to, we use the power of repetition, skilled practice, and task specific training to harness the power of neuroplasticity. An evaluation by one of our therapists is required prior to being enrolled in an intensive program to determine medical appropriateness and to discuss feasibility. Treatments are usually held multiple hours per day and 3-5 day per week.
  2. Traditional Rehabilitation: Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy: Our team of therapists have a passion for providing our clients with individualized care focused on functional and meaningful goals. Please indicate what goals you have or which service you are seeking when making your initial appointment. Some services may have limited hours availability.
  1. Fitness/Wellness Services: Lifelong wellness is an important aspect to long term care after a neurologic condition. The services we offer support those that wish to maintain their level of function, decrease their risk of secondary injury or complications (e.g. pressure sores, contractures, pain, deconditioning, falls), improve fitness levels, target weight loss, or assist in training for competitive or recreational adaptive sports. These services are led by exercise science and therapy professionals with knowledge specific to our target population. To make an appointment please reach out and indicate your need for one of the following programs:
    • Armor: Personal Training sessions; 1:1 with set goals based on an initial assessment
    • Amplify: Maintenance care needing some 1:1 care such as completing a stretching routine, setting up on equipment, tracking progress and giving feedback. Services can be completed by any clinic staff trained in specific intervention
    • Active: NRC gym membership; participant needs minimal to no assist to use equipment safely and effectively. Great for those that need accountability to home program and want to feel comfortable in your workout environment!
