FAQs on Neurological Therapy for Balance Problems:

What is Neurological Rehabilitation and Therapy? 

Neurological rehabilitation and therapy is a specialized treatment method for diseases, injuries, or disorders of the nervous system. To help treat these issues, neurologic physical therapists work with patients to improve or restore their mobility, which is often negatively affected by conditions of the nervous system.

What Are Examples of Health Issues That Benefit From This Type of Care?

There are numerous examples of potential conditions that could impair the nervous system and require specialized physical therapy and rehabilitation. A handful of these include:

  • Vascular disorders, which lead to abnormal blood vessel health and function
  • Certain infections, such as meningitis
  • Trauma, such as brain and spinal cord injury
  • Structural or neuromuscular disorders, such as Bell palsy, carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, muscular dystrophy, etc.
  • Functional disorders, such as headaches, seizure disorder, dizziness, and neuralgia
  • Degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer disease, and Huntington chorea

How Exactly Does Neurological Rehabilitation And Therapy Help With These Conditions?
