Neuro Rehabilitation

 

What is neurological rehabilitation?

It is a doctor-supervised program designed for people with diseases, injury or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehab can often improve function, reduce symptoms and improve overall well-being of the patient.

Injuries, infections, degenerative diseases, structural defects, tumors, and disorders in the circulatory system can impair the nervous system. Some of the conditions that may benefit from neurological rehab may include:

Vascular disorders, such as ischemic strokes (caused by blood clots), hemorrhagic strokes (caused by bleeding in the brain), subdural hematoma, and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)

Infections, such as meningitis, encephalitis, polio, and brain abscesses

Trauma, such as brain and spinal cord injury

Structural or neuromuscular disorders, such as Bell’s palsy, cervical spondylosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain or spinal cord tumors, peripheral neuropathy, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome

Functional disorders, such as headache, seizure disorder, dizziness, and neuralgia

Degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer disease and Huntington chorea

Neurological rehab programs can be done on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Many skilled professionals are part of the neurological rehab team, including:

  • Neurologist/neurosurgeon
  • Orthopedist/orthopedic surgeon
  • Internist
  • Other specialty doctors
  • Rehabilitation specialists
  • Registered Dietitian
  • Physical therapist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Speech/language therapist
  • Psychologist/psychiatrist
  • Recreational therapist

A neurological rehab program is designed to meet your individual needs, depending on your specific problem or disease. Active involvement of you and your family is vital to the success of the program. The goal of neurological rehab is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life — physically, emotionally and socially.

To help reach these goals, neurological rehab programs may include:

Help with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, handwriting, cooking, and basic housekeeping

Speech therapy to help with speaking, reading, writing or swallowing

Stress, anxiety and depression management

Bladder and bowel retraining

Activities to improve mobility (movement), muscle control, gait (walking), and balance

Exercise programs to improve movement, prevent or decrease weakness caused by lack of use, manage spasticity and pain and maintain range of motion

Social and behavioral skills retraining

Nutritional counselling

Activities to improve cognitive impairments, such as problems with concentration, attention, memory

Help with obtaining assistive devices that promote independence

Education and counselling

Safety and independence measures and home care needs
