I1 1995, Dr. Neil Brooks and Cathy Johnson set out to create a rehabilitation facility for those with brain injuries. They wanted to help brain injury, spinal cord injury, and stroke patients in a new way: blending scientifically backed rehab protocols with the patient’s real-life activities.
Rehab Without Walls might also be called Rehab Without Barriers. The company operates in 19 US states, Canada, and the UK.
The company specializes in Post Intensive Care Syndrome, acute brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, stroke rehabilitation, various neurological conditions, and more.

In July 2012, the Arizona Speech-Language-Hearing Association selected a participant from Rehab Without Walls for its Child of the Year Award.
The parent company of Rehab Without Walls, BrightSpring Health Services, acquired Pate Rehabilitation.
