Rehab Oasis will help you Regain Your Independence

Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological rehabilitation focuses on helping individuals improve function, who have a neurological injury or disorder. Physical therapy will help you to achieve a higher level of function and independence. Neurological injuries and disorders include a variety of problems that can be caused by injuries, infections, age-related degeneration, structural defects, and tumors.

 

Physical therapy is very important for patients who have a neurological disease or injury. The brain and spinal cord control movement and sensation, but injuries to the brain and spinal cord can cause these cells to die. Without physical therapy this can result in the loose of movement and function. Following an injury there is a period of time when the healthy cells in the brain and spinal cord can learn to control the functions that have been affected. Neurological rehabilitation will help prevent the loss of function during this time by teaching patients how to move.

Rehab Oasis has a team of neuromuscular rehabilitation specialist with additional training in the evaluation, treatment and education of patients with neurological disorders.

What conditions can benefit from neurological rehab?

 

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:

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

  • Trauma, such as brain and spinal cord injury

  • Structural or neuromuscular disorders, such as Bell 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 disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer disease, and Huntington chorea
