LBB Rehab Logo

The barrier in front of you is not stronger
than what’s inside of you.

At Life Beyond Barriers, we believe in a world in which innovation in rehabilitative therapies creates opportunities and options for anyone, adults and children, who have sustained a neurological injury.

Life is recovery of mind, body and spirit. We are architects of healing who see a grand design in each person. We know there is unconditional potential in every rehabilitation, every step, every rep, and every patient’s journey to recovery.

Our goal is capability not compromise.

We offer intensive, activity-based neurorehabilitation for brain and spinal cord injuries, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, developmental delays and neurological/movement disorders. Our focus is on regaining or improving function instead of just learning how to compensate for deficiency. Each person benefits from our individualized and innovative therapy of the mind, body and spirit.

We focus on regaining function and not compensating for injury.
Each person gets a customized plan instead of a one-size-fits-all approach.
Our methods are at the forefront of evidence-based research unlike traditional, rigid and limited approaches.
We treat the whole person instead of a narrow focus on a specific area.

The barriers are many. So too are
the ways we conquer them.

Injuries and patients come in all shapes, sizes and levels of severity. To get the utmost out of rehabilitation, we use a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment.

Get better. Live better.

We’re proud to offer a world of recovery beyond injury or condition. Our innovative, neuro-based rehab programs offer personalized plans based on specific goals. Our wellness center is our commitment to getting well, being well and staying well. Together, they’re the pillars of our overall good health philosophy.
