Outpatient Rehabilitation in Houston
Rehabilitation has rapidly developed and expanded in recent years, permitting many people with injuries or disabilities to achieve far greater levels of function and independence than previously thought possible. These medical and technological advances - along with timely intervention - have prevented complications, improved quality of life and reduced lifetime medical expenses.
Patients who have had catastrophic injuries or illnesses often need lifelong follow-up through outpatient rehabilitation to detect and prevent complications and address issues of aging with a disability. Our 3 outpatient rehabilitation locations provide a comprehensive range of therapeutic services to adults and children, all customized to meet an individual's specific needs and goals.
