Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Overview

Good Shepherd’s inpatient Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program offers a highly individualized and multi-disciplinary approach to care in the aftermath of mild and serious brain injuries.

The goal of this patient-centered program is to restore individuals with brain injuries to their highest potential of physical, cognitive and behavioral function through the use of leading technology and hands-on therapy. Good Shepherd features a self-contained, secure brain injury unit designed to better monitor patients.

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program, which is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), specializes in evaluating and treating:

  • Movement, function, speech and language impairments that result from a brain injury
  • Behavior management to reduce or replace medication, teach relaxation, reduce stress and enhance the recovery process
  • Physical and cognitive skills through leisure and sports activities
  • Pain management
  • Brain function in the areas of cognitive abilities, behavior and emotional status via our team of neuropsychologists

Care Team

Good Shepherd’s brain injury rehabilitation team is directed by a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. The care team meets on a regular basis to assess your progress and develop or adjust your treatment goals.

  • Physiatrists (doctors who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation)
  • Rehab nurses
  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Speech and language pathologists
  • Dietitians
  • Social workers and chaplains
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Case managers

Treatment Approach

A guiding principle in Good Shepherd’s treatment approach is neuroplasticity, a life-changing concept. Mounting evidence suggests the brain and spinal cord have the ability to “rewire,” which can lead to functional return. Where once there was a permanent cognitive and/or physical deficit after a brain injury, now there is hope and the potential for recovery.
