Beyond Therapy® Overview
Shepherd Center created Beyond Therapy® as an intensive neurological rehabilitation program that integrates the disciplines of physical therapy and exercise physiology.
Advanced Neurological Rehabilitation
The program facilitates neurological and functional recovery in people who have sustained a neurological injury, such as a spinal cord injury, brain injury or stroke, and have exhausted traditional means of outpatient therapeutic intervention.
Beyond Therapy® is based on research suggesting the central nervous system is capable of synaptic plasticity and anatomical reorganization through “activity-based” therapy. This process is called neuroplasticity. Beyond Therapy® combines the concepts of athletic training and physical therapy to promote health, wellness and recovery.
