Inpatient rehabilitation takes place in the hospital. You may have one or more sessions daily depending on your level of recovery. Your rehabilitation may take most of your day. Inpatient rehabilitation includes physical movement, water therapy, strength building and balance. For stroke, brain injury, infections or neurological illnesses, you may have speaking and mental reasoning exercises. Your inpatient rehabilitation will take place at the Vidant Rehabilitation Center. This 75-bed accredited center's highly skilled professionals and advanced services will allow you to recover to your fullest ability using personal goals that allow you to work toward independence in your daily activities.
Pediatric inpatient rehabilitation takes place at the Children's Hospital within Vidant Medical Center. We have one of only two dedicated inpatient children's rehabilitation units in the state. We treat children of all ages after traumatic injuries, illnesses and accidents. Our rehabilitation programs allow children to continue developing while achieving individual goals.
Outpatient rehabilitation takes place at our medical offices. These treatments are very important for your recovery after your medical condition improves. You may work on balance, recovering everyday skills or adjusting to a prosthetic limb or brace. Our program can also allow you to recover from work or sports injuries. We see patients with spinal injuries, brain injuries, post-polio syndrome, spasticity, workplace injuries and amputations.
As part of your therapy, you may receive pain treatments including injections of steroids, nerve blockers or medication. Outpatient rehabilitation sessions may last an hour or longer. Your rehabilitation may last most of the day.
