Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological Physical Therapy

Neurological rehabilitation involves treatment and management of patients with movement disorders resulting from injury or disease process of the nervous system. Down below are some of the conditions we treat at our physical therapy clinic.

Neurological conditions we commonly treat

  • Stroke: Sometimes known as cerebrovascular accident, stroke occurs from a blockage of blood to the brain or from hemorrhage. Within a few minutes to hours brain cell death occurs causing impairment accordingly. Some of the problems noted are :
    muscle weakness
    spasticity
    coordination deficits and sensory loss
    loss of balance and difficulty walking
    Decreased awareness & neglect of one side of the body
  • Parkinson’s disease: Sometimes called the ‘punch-drunk’ syndrome, this is a progressive disease characterized by degeneration of the nervous system, mainly involving the basal ganglia. It is considered to be on the rise in the older population and has tremendously increased the burden of care as in stroke.
    Some of the problems noted are:
    muscle rigidity
    coordination deficits
    increased fall risks
    flexed posture
    osteoporosis
  •  Multiple Sclerosis: this is progressive disease affecting the brain and the spinal cord, wherein the nerve cells lose their myelin sheath causing nerve conduction impairment. Some of the symptoms experienced are :
    Pain, numbness and tingling
    Muscle wasting and weakness
    Vision problems
    Walking and balance difficulty
    Fatigue
