Programs at these facilities are managed by rehabilitation physicians and therapists that specialize in services such as physical and occupational therapy, rehabilitation nursing, speech–language pathology, as well as prosthetic and orthotic devices.  Common types of patient conditions treated at inpatient rehabilitation facilities include:

  • Stroke rehabilitation
  • Joint replacement (orthopedics)
  • Head trauma (brain injury, disease or condition)
  • Spinal cord injury or disease
  • Other medically complex conditions

In general, inpatient rehabilitation facilities are focused on treating conditions that typically require intensive rehabilitation and a more sophisticated level of care than is available in other settings outside of a hospital, including skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, assisted living centers or extended care centers.
