Specialized SCI Rehabilitation and Treatment
If you or a loved one have experienced an acute spinal cord injury, we're sorry this has happened. We know spinal cord injuries change many people's lives, and we understand the challenges you face. At Shepherd Center, we believe life can still be fulfilling and enjoyable, regardless of the severity of your injury. We help patients set goals, adjust to living with a spinal cord injury and achieve positive outcomes.
If you are currently in a trauma center, your doctor, case manager or discharge planner will talk to you about the next steps once you are stabilized. Shepherd Center may be a spinal cord injury rehabilitation option for you, depending on the severity of your injury, your current condition and your insurance plan's provisions.
Our patients travel from around the nation to undergo Shepherd Center's aggressive brand of rehabilitation that you just won't find anywhere else. Be sure to ask your healthcare provider about us.
Why Choose Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation at Shepherd Center?
Shepherd Center is very different from a general rehabilitation facility. Our clinicians specialize in spinal cord injury and treat a high volume of patients – about 400 each year. As a result, we have more experience dealing with all levels of spinal cord injuries, including those in people who are ventilator dependent or have a dual diagnosis of spinal cord and brain injury.
Shepherd Center is one of 14 facilities in the United States that is designated as a Spinal Cord Injury Model System by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
