Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological Physical Therapy

Neurological physical therapy focuses on treating and managing individuals with neurological conditions or injuries, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. It aims to improve mobility, strength, coordination, and function, empowering individuals to reclaim their independence and quality of life.  Down below are some of the conditions we treat at our physical therapy clinic.

Neurological conditions we commonly treat

Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Cerebral Palsy, Guillain-Barré Syndrome
  • 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

Key Components of Neurological Physical Therapy

  • Comprehensive Assessment: Evaluates the individual’s movement patterns, strength, coordination, balance, and functional limitations to develop a personalized treatment plan.
  • Task-Specific Training: Engages in repetitive, task-oriented exercises to target specific functional goals and promote neuroplasticity.
  • Gait and Balance Training: Utilizes exercises and activities to improve walking ability, balance, and fall prevention.
  • Strength and Endurance Exercises: Focuses on building muscle strength and endurance to support functional activities.
  • Neuromuscular Reeducation: Facilitates relearning of movement patterns and coordination through hands-on techniques and feedback.
