Neurological Rehabilitation

What Is Neurological Rehabilitation?

Neurological rehabilitation is a therapy program designed for patients who have experienced trauma or a medical diagnosis pertaining to the nervous system. The brain and spinal cord and the central nervous system control movement and sensation. Injuries to these areas, the brain or spinal cord can cause death of the cells that control certain movements and sensations, and therefore people lose function. Often trauma or a diagnosis of this nature can cause physical disability or impairment which alter normal, day to day activities. Although there are more than 600 neurological diseases, the most common diagnoses that we treat include:

  • Parkinson’s
  • Stroke
  • Bell’s Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Balance and Gait Disorders
  • RSD- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Neuropathies
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome

How Physical Therapy Can Help?

Neurological Physical Therapy encompasses specialized comprehensive evaluation and treatment of individuals with movement problems due to disease or injury of the nervous system. Following a neurological injury, patients may lose many functions and not be able to perform certain activities. Decreased intensity of activity leads to many other health problems such as diabetes, heart problems, lung problems, decreased independence, and an overall poor quality of life. Our expert physical therapists are very well-informed about human movement and can teach you how to move correctly again. Your therapist will design a neurological rehab program to meet your individual needs. Depending on your current functional abilities and your therapist’s initial evaluation, your physical therapy program may include a variety of treatments and recovery exercises such as:

  • Restore range of motion
  • Improve functional movement and strength
  • Mobility improvement exercises
  • Home care and safety measures
  • Cognitive improvement
  • Skills and exercises for performance of daily activities
  • Exercises to prevent muscle degeneration
  • Pain and stress management
  • Gait Training
  • Postural re-alignment
  • Improve safety of transfers and mobility
  • Balance re-training and decrease risk of fall
  • Core stabilization
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) performance
  • Visual Perceptual Skill retraining
  • Cardiovascular endurance
  • Improve motor planning and motor control
  • Decrease spasticity/tone
  • Prosthesis/orthoses training
  • Equipment evaluation/recommendation to include wheelchairs, cane, walkers or crutches

Active involvement of you and your family is vital to the success of a good neurological rehab program. The goal of each individualized rehabilitation plan is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life — physically, emotionally, and socially.
