Recovery and Rehabilitation

Building strength and mobility following spinal injury or surgery

As recovery and rehabilitation are key components of the process, Riverside’s Spine Services do not end with surgery. Recovering from a spinal injury or surgery will likely include physical therapy to help you regain strength and mobility, but it may also include occupational therapy to help you learn to get back to your normal activities. Depending on the severity of your injury or complexity of your surgery, your care team will work with your physician to develop the best rehabilitation program for your needs.

Following any initial hospital stay, Riverside Rehabilitation Services offers a wide array of therapy services in many different settings, including outpatient therapy, inpatient rehabilitation centers which offer subacute rehab as well as our inpatient acute rehabilitation program at the Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital in Yorktown.

For patients who have experienced a trauma or more severe injury, the Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital Spinal Cord Injury Rehab Program may be part of the recovery plan.
