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 Thibodaux Regional Rehabilitation Center 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

Thibodaux Regional Rehabilitation Center 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.
