    EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY & COMMUNITY HEALTH STUDENTS  - The Brooks Rehabilitation Wellness programs allow individuals with disabilities to continue therapeutic exercise during and after traditional inpatient and outpatient therapy.  Participants can maximize neuroplasticity during recovery and benefit from lifelong wellness opportunities.

    All members receive an evaluation by a neurologically trained physical therapist to determine the most effective programming to maximize their potential for neuroplasticity, recovery and wellness.  Following an evaluation, the clinical experts at Brooks Wellness develop a customized rehab program to meet each member’s specific needs.  Visits are scheduled for set up and orientation for the interventions which have been selected.  These advanced treatment options range from one-on-one interventions to supervised exercise and group activities with members who are at varying stages of recovery.
