How We Heal
With CP patients, we focus on mobility, communication, self-care and education. Throughout our Innovation Centers and Ability Labs, doctors, therapists and scientists work together, toward your best outcomes.
Nerve, Muscle + Bone Innovation Center
For nearly 60 years, we’ve been recognized for the depth of our expertise with myriad conditions affecting the nerves, muscles, bones and joints in adults and children.Learn More
Legs + Walking Lab
This Lab is designed for patients and research participants with diagnoses affecting lower-body function due to brain or spinal cord injury and diseases of the nerves, muscles and bones. Researchers and clinicians focus on advancing trunk, pelvic and leg function, movement, coordination, strength and balance.
Arms + Hands Lab
The two-story Harris Family Foundation Arms + Hands Lab is a robust environment designed for patients and research participants working on recovering and strengthening complex hand and reaching skills — turning a key, picking up a pen, reaching for a glass, putting on a sweater…all the many things we do with our hands, arms and fingers.
Strength + Endurance Lab
This Lab is designed for patients and research participants working on building stamina and resilience. Therapy is targeted to improve complex motor and endurance activities, coordination and higher-level activities of daily living (cooking, dressing, gardening, sports).
Think + Speak Lab
Recovering the ability to think, reason, perceive, swallow, eat, talk, interact with others and make decisions are key for returning to yourself, loved ones and life. In this Lab, combined therapeutic care and scientific application help you recover these building blocks of ability.

Meet our doctors who have dedicated their lives to helping children and adults with CP.
We have 350 clinical studies under way — some specifically CP-related. For example, we’re testing novel stretching and assistive devices (software, toys, splints), as well as exploring CP at the cell level. We offer you access to the world’s most advanced research that can directly impact your outcome.
Clinical Trials & Research Studies

The aim of this project is to develop a research registry of research volunteers for recruitment purposes at the Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes Research (CROR).
Participants will be contacted if they are eligible for future studies.
