Neurologic Therapy

Advanced therapy to ease pain and restore hope

Physical therapy is very important for people who have previously experienced or currently have a neurological disease or injury. Your spinal cord and brain control both your sensations and your movement. An injury to a person’s brain or spinal cord may cause death of cells that control specific movements and sensations, leading to loss of function.

Neurological Disabilities Treated with Physical Therapy Include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Stroke
  • ALS
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Spinal cord injuries

Neurologic Health Impairments

Common types of impairments associated with neurologic conditions can include:
  • Balance
  • Vision
  • Walking
  • Movement
  • Activities of daily living
  • Speech
  • Loss of functional independence

Benefits of Neurologic Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can help to prevent loss of function, helping you remain able to perform certain activities. Not doing this therapy could cause you to have additional health problems that can include lung or heart problems, decreased independence, diabetes, and an overall reduction in their quality of life.

Neurological disorders affect a person’s nervous system and can happen in people from all age groups. Our neurological physical therapists work with you to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Improve your balance and coordination
  • Help to restore your range of movement and motion
  • Ensure nerve cells and motor functions work
  • Reduce motor defects
