Understanding Your Pain:

Do you have pain from a recent injury, illness or surgery? Baton Rouge Rehab wants to help you learn about managing your pain before it gets out of control. Pain can be debilitating and is a different experience for each person. Our acute pain class provides education and techniques to manage pain outside of traditional medical management, as well as a focus on the emotional aspect of pain.

The class will be led by our Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Physical Therapist and is offered on the 2nd Thursday & 4th Wednesday each month from 12:30 – 1:30 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Baton Rouge Rehab Hospital at 225-231-3123 or email

Spinal Cord Injury Survivor Shares Motivational Story at Free Lunch & Learn

BATON ROUGE, La. – As part of National Rehabilitation Awareness week, Baton Rouge Rehab Hospital (BRRH) will host a September 17 Lunch and Learn event featuring Paul Erway, spinal cord injury survivor and motivational speaker.

Erway had his first life-changing accident in 1980, with a second major accident in 2006. His story is unique, but his insights are relevant to anyone, regardless of abilities or disabilities.

He is the author of “50 Abilities, Unlimited Possibilities: Wheeling through the 50 States, from Jackson to the Boston Marathon Bombing.” In the book, Erway chronicles his team on their goal to complete 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks through the Christopher & Dana Reeves Foundation.

The noon event will be held at BRRH, in the 2nd floor dining room. Seating is limited, so to RSVP please call (225) 231-3123 or email

BRRH will host multiple events as part of National Rehab Week, including the Roll On! Bowl On! Bowling Tournament on Sept. 17 to raise awareness for spinal cord injuries and an Amputee Support Group meeting on Sept. 20. Find more details here.
