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.
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:
Every treatment program that falls under this type of care is unique and designed specifically to meet individual patient needs. In each case, however, the goal is to help the patient return to their highest level of function, independence, and quality of life. Our practice in particular focuses on the physical therapy aspects of neurological rehabilitation, and we strive to help patients improve their mobility and range of motion, muscle control and strength, and balance.
Any disease that affects the central nervous system can also cause balance problems. But by customizing treatment plans for every patient, we can address balance issues with targeted physical therapy treatments. Exercise programs and balance training in general can also improve movement, prevent or decrease muscle weakness, manage pain, and maintain range of motion - all important parts of managing neurological deficits symptoms.
We help our patients achieve the highest level of functional independence by improving their strength, mobility, balance, and coordination! Our ultimate goal is to return you to a normal, pain-free lifestyle. If you have questions about our practice and services, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 412-344-9044.
