Outpatient rehabilitation services

Outpatient rehabilitation programs offer integrated rehabilitation services across different specialities to help improve a person's ability to be more mobile and participate in daily life.

Outpatient rehabilitation is provided in a clinic setting, where multiple health professionals may be involved in working with you to achieve your rehabilitation goals. Outpatient rehabilitation services are also available for spinal cord injury.

You will be individually assessed to identify programs to most suit your needs and your current situation.
