TIRR Memorial Hermann Adult Outpatient Rehabilitation offers different levels of care, according to the special needs of each patient. At all levels of treatment, specialists from many disciplines are brought together to help patients progress.

Outpatient Rehabilitation in Houston

Rehabilitation has rapidly developed and expanded in recent years, permitting many people with injuries or disabilities to achieve far greater levels of function and independence than previously thought possible. These medical and technological advances - along with timely intervention - have prevented complications, improved quality of life and reduced lifetime medical expenses.

Patients who have had catastrophic injuries or illnesses often need lifelong follow-up through outpatient rehabilitation to detect and prevent complications and address issues of aging with a disability. Our outpatient rehabilitation locations provide a comprehensive range of therapeutic services to adults and children, all customized to meet an individual's specific needs and goals.

Outpatient rehabilitation allows the patient to:

  • Continue with needed treatment, yet be at home with family
  • Problem-solve issues they are encountering in the real world
  • Immediately practice and apply skills learned during a therapy session in the home and community

Patients who may not need the intensity of inpatient treatment or may not meet the requirements of inpatient hospitalization can still receive the skilled services of the specialized rehabilitation staff. Patients who were not treated at TIRR as an inpatient are welcome to TIRR Memorial Hermann. Since we care about your health and well-being, we have designed TIRR Memorial Hermann Strength Unlimited to provide specialized strength and cardiovascular training to those with physical disabilities due to neurological injury. This program offers clients the ability to improve strength, fitness and flexibility in a fully accessible environment with trained professional staff.
