What patients say About Rehab Caribbean

Read what people are saying about us.

  • Having met in a motor vehicle accident and suffered injuries to my spine, I had to be rehabilitated to experience recovery. My body began to work differently, therefore, it became necessary for me to learn how to care for this ‘new body’. I have grown to appreciate the importance of rehabilitation. It has taught me to care for, listen and respond to my body in a timely manner before it starts ‘screaming’. This process has taught me to be more disciplined in my daily activities, therefore, I am pushed to live a balanced life of not overdoing activities. The different techniques, medications and support received from Rehabilitation Institute of the Caribbean during this process is very important to me maintaining a high level of health in order to live and enjoy a normal life.

  • Facing injuries as a professional athlete has taught me that the most effective solution after a proper diagnosis is a sound rehabilitation program. Rehab allows me to focus on the areas that are weakened by getting them stronger in a healthy way

  • Consistently adhering to easy stretching and exercise regime prescribed by Dr. Dawson has kept me pain and medicine free; and able to pursue all daily activities after diagnosis of severe lumbar spinal stenosis - with no surgical intervention! Thanks Rehabilitation Institute of the Caribbean and Dr. Dawson!

  • As a non-swimmer, I welcomed the pool at Rehab Institute as my initiation into hydrotherapy. It makes it easy for me to practice the specific exercises for my spinal stenosis without feeling intimidated and distracted as I usually feel in a class in a large outdoor pool.  I have also found it to be more convenient than an outdoor pool because its use is not affected by the weather. I can recommend it without reservation

  • Amazing! Not only do I love the treatment but the support from the doctors is outstanding. I highly recommend Rehab Caribbean to anyone who wants a high quality care for their health.

  • Love the Care. This is probably one of the best decisions I have ever made. Everything about the Rehab's Care is perfect, from the attention to the end result. Stop by, you won’t regret it!
