Programs and services : Sanford Rehabilitation Center: Specialty Therapies

Sanford Rehabilitation Center

Specialty Therapies


After many years of helping individuals recover from stroke, the Rehab Center can help clients achieve functional gains in a timely, cost-effective manner. This pathway to recovery allows our patients to become more functionally independent and understand how to incorporate lifestyle changes that reduce the risk of future strokes or other complications.

Low vision services

Sanford Rehabilitation Center is pleased to offer low vision services, a new and innovative program helping people with low vision in their daily activities to maintain an independent lifestyle.

Low vision services are for patients with visual impairments that cannot be corrected by medical treatment or conventional eyeglasses, including glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy or vision impairment caused by stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis and other disorders.

Patients must be referred by an optometrist or ophthalmologist with a low vision specialty. For more information, call Sanford Occupational Therapy at (701) 323-6153.

Neurological disorders

The Sanford Rehabilitation Center assists patients with chronic progressive conditions such as Parkinson's disease and acute remitting diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis. By following a rehabilitation plan designed to achieve functional gains, patients become more functionally independent and learn how to reduce the risk of future medical problems.

Spinal cord injuries

Spinal cord rehabilitation is an intricate and complicated process that requires staff to enhance a patient's abilities on physical, cognitive and emotional levels. Based on a patient's limitations, the staff establishes an individualized treatment plan. Each plan of care incorporates specific methods that encourage the client to develop pragmatic problem-solving approaches appropriate for his or her rehabilitation and continuing care.


The healing and recuperative effects of water have long been known. The hydrotherapy pool at the Sanford Rehabilitation Center soothes aching muscles.

Supporting a patient's weight with water makes some exercises easier during the early stages of rehabilitation from stroke, burns, arthritis or joint injuries.

The Rehabilitation Center has two 16' X 30' therapeutic pools that provide a warm and comfortable environment that relaxes muscles so they can move and stretch more comfortably.

Under the gentle and helpful guidance of a physical therapist, patients ease their way to recovery in the warm water therapeutic pool and whirlpools.


In working with children and adults who have lost a limb, our goal of therapy is maximum function and mobility. Our highly skilled rehabilitation staff works with the patient and their family through decisions on treatment and selecting, adapting and caring for a prosthesis.

Baclofen pump

If you suffer from cerebral palsy the baclofen pump may allow you to function more independently. The pump delivers a continuous supply of baclofen, a muscle relaxant, to your spinal canal. The result is a reduction of the muscle spasms you experience with cerebral palsy.

Brain injury

Every 21 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a traumatic brain injury.

Traumatic brain injury is an insult to the brain caused by an external force that can produce an altered state of consciousness, which results in impaired cognitive abilities and/or physical functioning. What are the symptoms of a brain injury?
  • Body numbness/tingling
  • Confusion
  • Headache
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Slow pulse/slow breathing
  • Vision changes
  • Vomiting

Anyone with a suspected brain injury should seek immediate medical attention.

For more information, call Sanford Rehabilitation Center at (701) 323-6197 or visit with your Sanford Health doctor.

Wheelchair seating, positioning and mobility clinic

We offer a comprehensive evaluation to determine the seat positioning and mobility need of physically challenged patients. Our team approach to identify specific needs includes an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, a rehab technology specialists, the patient and a family member or caregiver, and when needed, a speech therapist.

By recommending the appropriate equipment, your optimal function, comfort and performance are assured.


Orthopedic rehabilitation treats musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. The pathway to recovery for patients with orthopedic conditions will help them achieve and maintain functional gains in a timely, cost-effective manner. The program is individualized according to a patient's needs, functional goals, and extent of injury.
