What Is Neurological Rehabilitation?

Neurological rehabilitation helps patients recover from injuries and illnesses impacting the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Both systems play key roles in basic functioning, and even minor injuries can significantly impact a patient’s ability to move, think, and interact.

With neurological rehabilitation, you can minimize the symptoms of your neurological condition, regain confidence, and get back to living an active life.

What Conditions Does Neurological Rehabilitation Treat?

Neurological rehabilitation can reduce symptoms in virtually any condition impacting the brain or spinal cord. Common examples include:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Traumatic or acquired brain injury
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Motor neuron disease

Neurological rehabilitation can improve the physical and mental symptoms of these conditions. Our physical therapists work closely with our occupational therapists to help patients re-learn essential tasks and gain independence, freedom, and control.

Our Neurological Treatment Methods

At Spero Rehab, we’re committed to providing the latest, most advanced treatment methods in neurological rehabilitation. We stay up to date on new technologies and equipment and our clinicians undergo training frequently to expand our therapies and skill-sets.

At its core, our neurological rehabilitation service hinges on the concept of neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the nervous system to adapt and change after injury. We currently offer the following treatments that apply this concept:

  • Facilitated exercise programs to target individual symptoms and goals
  • Functional electrical stimulation to induce muscular contraction
  • Aquatic therapy to improve movement quality and decrease pain
  • Lokomat exoskeleton rehabilitation to increase muscle strength and gait mechanics
  • Armeo robotic upper extremity assistance to foster functional recovery of the upper limbs
  • Virtual reality to practice motor skills in different environments

Depending on your condition, symptoms, and rehabilitation goals, we’ll develop a treatment plan using any or all of these therapies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Neuro rehab focuses on the concept of neuroplasticity to adapt and change the brain cells involved in motor function and cognition. This form of therapy may include a wide range of treatments that establish and strengthen the mind-body connection, using equipment like the Lokomat exoskeleton, Armeo robotic upper extremity device, and electrical stimulation equipment.

The most common neurological disorder is a headache, which can affect anyone at any age and vary significantly in severity. Many people don’t think of headaches as neurological disorders, but the worst headaches can cause serious pain and impact a person’s ability to complete basic activities.

Aside from headaches, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, and brain injuries are common neurological disorders that may benefit from rehabilitation.

Early warning signs of neurological deterioration include tremors, seizures, slurred speech, and muscle wasting. Addressing these symptoms early on could stop your condition from progressing and help you reverse any damage that has already occurred.

Neurological rehabilitation as a whole encompasses components like physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and swallowing therapy, language therapy, and vision therapy. Our neuro rehab services at Spero Rehab are often just one of several treatments patients undergo to improve neurological symptoms.
