Outpatient rehabilitation

An outpatient rehabilitation program allows patients to stay at home during their recovery and receive therapy on their schedule. It is usually less intensive than inpatient rehabilitation.

Outpatient neurological rehabilitation (neurorehab) in Metro Denver

Our mission for your recovery is to enhance your daily life and maximize your independence.

Neurological injuries and disorders can be limiting, but they do not have to control your life. At Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, we use outpatient neurorehab to help you regain your productivity while being able to maintain a sense of familiarity and routine by going home after therapy.
