Brooks Rehabilitation offers the opportunity to conduct clinical research at multiple levels at the Brooks Clinical Research Center, Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital, Brooks Outpatient Centers or Brooks Center for Sports therapy. Each of these facilities has been designated for pilot or case studies at various levels and sizes.

Brooks is proud to be involved in over 20 clinical research trials to improve our evidence based practice and quality of care for our patients.
