Neuro Rehabilitation

Neuro rehabilitation is a complex medical process that aims to aid recovery from a nervous system injury, and to minimize and/or compensate for any functional alterations resulting from it.

Stroke causes the sudden death of brain cells due to lack of oxygen caused by blockage of blood flow or rupture of an artery to the brain. Sudden loss of speech, weakness or paralysis of one side of the body can be symptoms.

With neuro rehab, the goal is to help you return to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living. It also aims to help the survivor understand and adapt to difficulties, prevent secondary complications and educate family members to play a supporting role.

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive disease of the nervous system marked by tremor, muscular rigidity and slow imprecise movement, shuffling gait, slow speech and a masklike facial expression. Parkinson’s disease affects middle aged and elderly people.

The neuro rehab goal is to slow down the progression of the disease, improving the flexibility, strengthening and cardiovascular conditions by using traditional physical therapy rehabilitation or LSVT Big Protocol. These treatments can improve balance, walking and overall functional ability.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) involves an immune mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is diverted against the central nervous system. MS causes many different symptoms, including vision loss, pain, fatigue and impaired coordination.

The symptoms, severity and duration can vary from person to person. Some people may be symptom-free most of their lives while others can have severe chronic symptoms that never go away.

The neuro rehab goal is to improve and maintain function, and to provide education and strategies designed to promote good health and overall conditioning, reduce fatigue and help you feel and function at your best at home and at work. If symptoms begin to interfere with every day activities, rehabilitation can address these problems.

Brain Injury refers to the occurrence of the insult to the brain that causes damage. Because each injury damages a different part of the brain, every injury is unique and often described as either traumatic or acquired based on the particular cause.

The neuro rehab goal is the restoration of functions that can be restored and learning how to do things differently when functions cannot be restored to pre-injury level.
