Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Support Groups

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation on Facebook


Did you know we have a Rehab Facebook group? It's is a safe place to go for support, give encouragement to others, share your experiences as well as communicate with the St. Luke's Rehab staff. Recovery is a physical as well as emotional process, and connecting with others in similar situations can be very beneficial!
The group is private, so you can post without worry.
