Marianjoy Day Rehabilitation and Outpatient Therapy Services in Wheaton is specially equipped to accommodate all levels of physical rehabilitation. Services include:
Day Rehabilitation therapy is for patients who require close monitoring by a Regional Medical Group physiatrist while receiving physical, speech and/or occupational therapy as an outpatient. Other services, such as psychology, nursing and case management are also available as parts of the Day Rehabilitation Program, as needed, as the care team continues to work towards the patient's optimal function. Approval for admittance to the program is sometimes required through a medical record review if a patient is referred by an external physician.
Outpatient therapy is for patients requiring physical, speech and/or occupational therapy, without monitoring by a Marianjoy physiatrist.
Additional outpatient services include:
The Tellabs Center for Neurorehabilitation and Neuroplasticity
The Tellabs Center for Neurorehabilitation and Neuroplasticity (TCNN) promotes neuroplasticity, a growing focus of research in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation that examines the capability of nerve cells to reorganize and reconnect to new pathways around damaged areas in the brain. TCNN incorporates the latest neurorehabilitation technology into the treatment of patients with stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury and other neurological conditions. Clinicians work with the patient to develop a unique care that is tailored specifically to the patient's needs. This plan may include the use of robotic exoskeletons, virtual reality and other devices designed to help them rebuild damaged neural connections. Learn more about TCNN.
