Outpatient Rehabilitation Center
Comprehensive Rehabilitation Care
Every minute of every day, someone experiences a medical trauma that changes
their ability to function as before. Stroke, injury to the brain, spinal
cord injuries, orthopedic traumas and other disabling conditions leave
families looking for help to care for their loved ones.
That is why the Rehabilitation Center of Thibodaux Regional was established
with both inpatient and outpatient facilities. Our mission is to improve
quality of life and maximize a person's ability to perform daily tasks.
We assist patients in developing new skills, relearning skills that were
lost and making adjustments in their everyday lives.
A Continuum of Care
The Rehabilitation Center of Thibodaux Regional offers comprehensive inpatient
and outpatient services. Follow-up surveys are completed after discharge
from the Inpatient Unit to make sure the patient is functioning well in
their discharge setting. Patients benefit from this continuum of care
that exists from the inpatient to the outpatient setting.
Outpatient Rehabilitation Services
The Outpatient Program offers comprehensive services for neurological,
orthopedic, industrial, speech, hand, women's health, orthotic/prosthetic,
pediatric, wound care and other rehabilitation needs. The Rehabilitation
Center's Outpatient Program is one of the few programs in the region
that offers all three disciplines (physical, speech and occupational therapy)
in one facility.
In addition, Aquatic Therapy is also offered by the Center. Water resistance,
rather than weights, is used to help patients after injury or for those
with chronic illness. Aquatic Therapy can make treatment and exercise
less painful, and as a result, more successful, leading to improved quality of life.
