Neurological rehabilitation has the goal of helping you to relearn functional movement patterns to return to performing tasks of everyday life. Neurological physiotherapy can improve function, reduce symptoms, and the overall quality of life of the patient.
What is Neurological Rehabilitation?
Neurological rehabilitation has the goal of helping you to relearn functional movement patterns to return to performing tasks of everyday life.
Retraining of functional movement patterns, including transfers, sit to stand and walking
Strengthening and conditioning
Reduce risk of secondary complications (e.g. shoulder subluxation, pressure sores)
Home environment assessment and modification
Patient education on lifestyle and activity pacing
Neurological conditions may present with various challenges, including cognitive deficits, communication difficulties, and spatial awareness issues, but our physiotherapists will assess and work with you for an individualized treatment approach.
Why the need for Neurological Rehabilitation?
When an incident causes a problem within the nervous system (this is made up of the spinal cord, brain, and nerves), this could lead to problems with mobility. Such neurological diseases would include events such as a stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, and so on.
Neurological conditions can have a devastating impact on the lives of the sufferers, along with family and friends. Disturbances in the neurological path of messages between the brain and the body can result in the loss of movement, sensation, coordination, and balance. Other aspects of bodily function, such as perception, speech, memory, cognition, and behaviour may also be affected.
Who is Neurological Rehabilitation for?
Neurological rehabilitation is intended for individuals who have experienced conditions or injuries affecting the nervous system, such as stroke, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease, neuromuscular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and more.
These conditions can result in a range of common impairments, including spatial awareness issues, sensory deficits, and secretion management difficulties that may necessitate chest physiotherapy. The goal of neurological rehabilitation is to address these impairments, helping patients regain function, manage their specific condition, and enhance their overall quality of life.
