Activities that build a bridge from clinic to community.
Rehab Without Walls neurorehab in specially equipped outpatient clinics in four states. Outpatient therapy is often a great fit for children and adults who have ongoing neurological conditions, as well as patients who need additional therapy after treatment in a more intensive setting.

When is outpatient neuro therapy the right fit?
Outpatient neuro therapy is best suited for patients who:
In some cases, the patient, family, physician or insurance company prefers an outpatient environment. Our outpatient neuro therapy programs are covered by most insurance and workers’ compensation plans. Medicare also covers outpatient services. More about insurance.
Our innovative approach to outpatient neuro therapy goes beyond functional capacities. We also strive to improve overall quality of life – whether that means helping a child who has autism deal with challenges at school or helping an adult who’s had a stroke learn how to cook with adaptive compensatory techniques.
To achieve the best results for each patient, we create an intensive, customized therapy plan that addresses the unique medical, physical, cognitive, psychosocial, behavioral, vocational, educational and recreational needs of the patient.

- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech-language therapy
