Rehabilitation gives you physical therapy and support when you need it most

Recovering from a serious illness or injury such as a concussion or stroke calls for a serious personal commitment. You can rely on the rehabilitation specialists at Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center to offer the support and care you need as you work toward your wellness goals.

If you come into our hospital during a medical emergency, you may receive physical, occupational or speech therapy in addition to services that address your urgent healthcare needs. When you are healthy enough to safely return home, your providers will continue to support you. Your doctor may recommend outpatient services at a nearby Novant Health rehabilitation center. These programs can help you get back to your routine after a hip or joint replacement, surgery or sports injury.
