Neurological rehabilitation

Neurological rehabilitation is designed for patients with injury to the brain, spinal cord or nerves. People with neurological injuries or disease sometimes have difficulty moving freely, speaking, swallowing, breathing, or learning. Rehabilitation facilities that specialize in these types of injuries or diseases focus on improving function and helping patients return to a more normal life.

Although there are more than 600 neurological diseases, common diagnoses include:

  • Parkinson's
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Neuromuscular Disorders
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Myopathy

Most important, the quicker you enter rehabilitation therapy, the better chance you have of recovery. In fact, it has been shown that the sooner a person starts inpatient rehabilitation, and the more time spent on therapy each day after an illness or injury, the better one's recovery is likely to be.

What should you look for in a neurology recovery program?

While treatment varies from patient to patient, all patients should participate in exercises that help with their individual problems. Therefore, comprehensive rehabilitation therapy should focus on the specific areas that will help you return to your normal daily activities.

  • Sitting
  • Balance
