Where should spinal-cord-injured persons go for rehabilitation?

Published: November 7, 2004

The National Spinal Cord Injury Association (NSCIA at 1-800-962-9629) maintains a current list of all accredited programs… over 50 in all. Some factors to consider in choosing a facility:

1. Reputation/word of mouth.
2. Proximity to home, family, friends.
3. Availability of facilities needed/wanted for one’s specific rehab objectives.
For example, FES, occupational therapy, attitudes of staff, etc.
