Mobility Clinic


The goal of the Mobility Clinics is to help patients with physical disabilities, and their
primary care providers, with health care needs that are difficult to manage due to a
patient’s disability or accessibility issues. That might include a patient who has difficulty
getting on to a typical high examination table and would benefit from the use of a more
accessible examination room equipped with an electronic lowering exam table,
overhead ceiling lift or just more time for a detailed assessment.

The Mobility Clinics are run by inter-professional teams that involve a physician,
nurse, chiropractor, occupational therapist, social worker and pharmacist who provide
additional primary care to patients with spinal cord injuries or other health
that impact mobility (e.g., ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, stroke, severe Arthritis).


  • The clinics are fully accessible and equipped with a hi-lo exam table, overhead lift and wheelchair scale.
  • The clinic can address general needs of those with physical disabilities or specific requests (e.g., general assessments, spasticity, mobility, bowel/bladder, pap tests, weights, etc.)


  • Assessments take 1-1.5 hours and feedback is provided to the patient and to the
    patient’s primary care practitioner.
  • Follow up is done either by telephone or repeat visit.
  • In some cases, the Mobility Clinic staff will see patients in their own homes/living
    environment for assessment.
  • If you are booked to come to a Mobility Clinic, please bring the shoes you typically wear, any braces, canes, walkers or wheelchairs, plus your medications.
