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. Neurological physiotherapy can improve function, reduce symptoms, and the overall quality of life of the patient.

 

Treatment techniques can include:

  • Practicing functional movement patterns

  • Strength and Conditioning exercises

  • Stretching and Mobility work

  • Work on balance and incorporate vestibular rehabilitation

  • Designing your living environment to support your recovery

  • Provide advice on lifestyle and fatigue management

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.

What can I expect at my sessions?

 

Our physiotherapists first start with an assessment, including a comprehensive movement analysis and goal-setting. Thereafter, we will chart the treatment plan with the patient and their loved ones. You can expect to move better, feel better and thrive!
