Physiatrist
A physiatrist is a medical doctor with specialized training in physical medicine and rehabilitation. The physiatrist is often the leader of the rehabilitation treatment team and makes referrals to various therapies and specialists as needed. The physiatrist works closely with the patient, the rehab team, and the family and caregivers to develop the best possible treatment plan.
Neurologist

A neurologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the nervous system. The brain, spinal cord, and nerves make up the nervous system, so the expertise of a neurologist is paramount in treating any neurological injury.

Neuropsychologist
A neuropsychologist is a board-certified psychologist with specialized training in brain anatomy, brain function, and brain-behavior relationships. A neuropsychologist’s evaluations provide valuable information about a patient’s ability to manage their own financial, legal, and medical decisions, and their ability to return to home, school, community, or work.
Primary Care Provider
A primary care provider (PCP), or primary care physician, is a healthcare professional who practices general medicine. Most PCPs are doctors, but nurse practitioners and physician assistants can also be PCPs. PCPs should be kept informed of all developments and treatments in a patient’s case.
Rehabilitation Nurse
Rehabilitation nurses monitor all body systems. A rehabilitation nurse attempts to maintain the patient’s medical status, anticipate potential complications, and work on goals to restore functioning. A rehabilitation nurse is responsible for the assessment, implementation, and evaluation of each individual patient’s nursing care and educational needs. They also coordinate with physicians and other team members to move the patient from a dependent to an independent role.
Physical Therapist
A physical therapist evaluates and treats the patient’s ability to move their body. The physical therapist helps improve physical function by focusing on regaining muscle strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, and coordination. The goal of physical therapy is to increase independent ability with physical tasks as well as patient education for individuals and their family.
Case Manager/Social Worker
A case manager or social worker is responsible for facilitating appropriate treatment and appointments, locating needed services, providing resource information, and assisting with discharge planning. They maintain contact with the patient’s insurance carrier, referring physician, and family and caregivers to make sure treatment goals are being met.

Hippotherapy
An occupational therapist, physical therapist, and/or a speech-language pathologist use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement to engage sensory, neuromotor, and cognitive systems to achieve functional outcomes. In conjunction with the affordances of the equine environment and other treatment strategies, hippotherapy is part of a patient’s integrated plan of care.
Speech-Language Pathologist
Speech-language pathologists identify, evaluate, and treat communication, cognitive, and swallowing disorders. Communication difficulties may include such things as understanding what is heard, being able to speak clearly, thinking of the words to express ideas, and problems with reading and writing. The speech-language pathologist also treats cognitive deficits such as attention, thinking skills, memory, executive functions, and social interactions with others. Training in the use of assistive technology for communication and cognitive impairments may be provided.
Aquatic Therapist
An aquatic therapist is an occupational therapist, physical therapist, or recreational therapist with specialized training to provide therapy in a heated water pool. Aquatic therapy is used to increase strength, coordination, ambulation skills, endurance, muscle movement, and to reduce pain.

A professional who assists injured individuals in assessing their strengths and weaknesses and selecting jobs or careers that maximize their potential to become more involved in their community by allowing them to contribute to society, make money, increase independence, and regain self-confidence and support from others. The vocational counselor works as a member of the rehabilitation team to formulate a plan designed to achieve vocational goals.
Modified Yoga & Meditation Instructor
a specialized practice, tailored to the meet the needs of a person with disabilities or chronic health conditions. Other than strengthening muscles, improving balance and flexibility and naturally realigning the spine, modified yoga offers a chance to reconnect with the mind, body and spirit in a positive way.

The powerful health and healing benefits of this practice change our minds and bodies for the better.
Recreational Therapist
provides activities to improve and reduce stress, depression and anxiety by enhancing self-esteem, social skills, motor skills, coordination, endurance, cognitive skills, and leisure skills to help build confidence and socialize in their community. Recreational therapists plan community outings to allow individuals to apply learned skills in social settings. Additional programs provided by recreational therapists may include pet therapy, leisure education, wheelchair sports, art therapy, cooking, music therapy and gardening.
Spiritual Counselor
