"Real world experiences are really important because neurologic conditions can take away your confidence. You feel unsure of what you can do and at what level of difficulty. It takes twice as long to learn something and to build your physical fitness, because you have to think about so many things at once - How long will my energy last today? Will I have good balance and coordination? What effect will my symptoms have on me today?" - Sarah, participant
Rehab in the Real World
We provide Physical Therapist-led outings and training to promote improved community integration and quality of life. Every activity has a distinct rehab focus, with unique goals for each individual. Examples include: wheelchair navigation at a local coffee shop, ambulation practice at a busy festival, seated balance and trunk rotation on a kayak, multitasking at the farmer's market, obstacle navigation on a trail, and assistive device training on a path by the river.
Local - Group outings for people living near Bend, OR. These programs are geared toward improving quality of life for people living in our local community.
Private Session - Customized one-on-one physical therapy sessions in the community. This provides a more intensive and focused rehab session than our group offerings.
Rehab Adventure Camp - Adventure with us! Join us for a rehab-focused, all-inclusive adventure vacation. Our therapists will work with you to address the limitations that are holding you back. The result is improved ability, confidence and independence!
