Neurological Rehabilitation
Neurological rehabilitation is a physician-supervised program designed for people with diseases, trauma, or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehabilitation can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient.

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

In order to help reach these goals, neurological rehabilitation programs may include the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLís) such as eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, handwriting, cooking, and basic housekeeping
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression management
  • 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
  • Activities to improve cognitive impairments, such as problems with concentration, attention, memory, and poor judgment
  • Help with obtaining assistive devices that promote independence
  • Patient and family education and counseling
  • Safety and independence measures and home care needs
  • Pain management
  • Stress management and emotional support
  • Speech therapy to help patients with speaking, reading, writing, or swallowing
  • Vocational counseling
