Neurological Rehabilitation is designed for patients that have experienced an injury to the brain, spinal cord, or nerves. People with neurological injuries or diseases sometimes have difficulty moving freely, speaking, swallowing, breathing, or learning. Rehabilitation specializing in these types of injuries or diseases focuses on improving functional participation in their daily life.
Although there are more than 600 neurological diseases, common diagnoses include:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Cerebral Palsy
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Neuromuscular Disorders
- Guillain-Barre Syndrome
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 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.
To accomplish this, you should look for a rehabilitation provider that offers care for your individual needs and includes programs focused on improvements in:
- Getting in and out of bed
- Proper diet
- Dressing, bathing and daily life
Our inpatient rehabilitation programs are designed to help patients improve in all of these areas.
