Carolinas Rehabilitation is nationally recognized for providing outstanding rehabilitation services to patients who have experienced brain injuries. Our team of compassionate, experienced specialists can help to make a lifetime of difference for our patients and families.
We focus on generating knowledge that will support the integration of individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) disabilities into their communities. Carolinas Rehabilitation is proud to be a TBI Model System Follow Up Site. TBI Model Systems Project plays a pivotal role in building the national capacity for high-quality treatment and research serving persons with TBI, their families and the communities in which they reside.
Our comprehensive brain injury team has many years of experience and expertise in brain injury rehabilitation. Working collaboratively with the patient, our team tailors each patient's care to meet individual needs. At Carolinas Rehabilitation, our goal is to get patients home at the highest level of function possible.
The team will be led by one of our dedicated brain injury specialized physicians. In addition to the physician, the patient's team may consist of:

Carolinas Rehabilitation offers some of the highest intensive therapy hours during inpatient rehabilitation of any facility in the nation (up to four and a half hours per day).
Since many of our patients may need to learn or relearn different tasks of daily living, our team members work together with the patient and his or her caregivers to teach any necessary skills or procedures - all with the ultimate goal of returning our patients to their communities so that they may live as independently and fully as possible.
We continually strive to meet excellent standards in our efforts to help patients who have sustained life-altering injuries return to their homes and communities. We carefully monitor our outcomes (PDF) compared to similar facilities across the nation in an effort to continually meet or exceed standards.
As a complement to our range of services, we also offer several specialized services for individuals with brain injury.
Once discharged from inpatient rehabilitation, patients may participate in our Outpatient Day Treatment Program. This comprehensive program meets five days a week and focuses on individual and group therapy to help integrate individuals back into school, work and the community.
