Spero Rehabs Fundamental Focus on Recovery to Foster True Functional Independence:
Spero Rehab is a cutting edge outpatient neurological setting that treats pediatrics and adults who have experienced a loss in functional independenceÂ as a result of a neurological insult to the brain or spinal cord. At Spero Rehab, our team is focused on advancing foundational skills related to core stabilization and upright posture. Improving these foundational skills has been proven to directly translate to improved functional independence within the home and community. This presentation will provide an introduction to the facility, our team, cutting edge equipment and innovative treatment techniques that are used during therapy.
