What is Neurological Rehabilitation?
Neurological Rehabilitation is based on improving function and mobility in people with a disorder of the neurological system of the brain and the spinal cord. Our therapists are specialized in treating patients with the following diagnoses, and many more:
Stroke: Individuals diagnosed with a stroke may present with weakness on one side of the body, problems with balance, difficulty with walking, difficulty with speech, difficulty with caring for themselves, as well as problems with endurance and exercise tolerance.
Brain Injury: Individuals diagnosed with a brain injury may have difficulty with concentration, dizziness, difficulty with balance, trouble with caring for themselves, difficulty with speech, difficulty with walking, as well as problems with endurance and exercise tolerance.
Multiple Sclerosis: Individuals diagnosed with MS may have difficulty using one side of their body, problems with walking, problems with balance, difficulty with endurance due to fatigue, as well as difficulty with dizziness and concentration.
Parkinson’s Disease: Individuals diagnosed with PD may have difficulty with balance, with use of one side of their body, may have difficulty with walking. PD may also affect self care, use of your voice, fine motor movements with your hands, and your overall flexibility.
We offer LSVT LOUD and BIG programs, as well as the Otago balance program.
Spinal Cord Injury: Individuals diagnosed with SCI’s may have difficulty with use of their legs and/or their arms, may have difficulty with mobility and pressure relief, balance, as well as their fine motor movement.
When Should I Start?
Some people may be appropriate starting therapy right after you are diagnosed. People with other neurological issues are appropriate once a Medical Professional team deems you to be stable to start your rehabilitation journey. Talk with your doctor or medical team to find out if Neurological Rehabilitation would be beneficial to you.
