Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurology rehabilitation is a doctor-supervised program designed for patients with injuries 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 they spend on therapy each day after an illness or injury, the better their 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 specifically target their individual problems. Therefore, comprehensive rehabilitation therapy should focus on the areas that will help you return to your normal daily activities. To accomplish this, you should look for a rehabilitation provider that offers care for your individual needs and includes programs focused on improvements in:

  • Sitting
  • Balance
  • Walking
  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Swallowing
  • Proper diet
  • Speech
  • Memory
  • Dressing, bathing and daily life 

Our inpatient rehabilitation programs are designed to help patients improve in all of these areas. Our team of medical experts is trained in helping neurology patients achieve the best recovery possible so that they can get back to a more normal daily routine as soon as possible.
