Neurological Rehabilitation (rehab) is a Physiotherapist-supervised program designed for people with diseases, injury, or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehab help to improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient.
The goal of neurological rehab is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life — physically, emotionally, and socially.
Some of the conditions that may benefit from neurological rehab may include:
1.Vascular disorders, such as ischemic strokes (caused by blood clots), hemorrhagic strokes (caused by bleeding in the brain), subdural hematoma, and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)
2.Infections, such as meningitis, encephalitis, polio, and brain abscesses
3. Trauma, such as brain and spinal cord injury
4. Structural or neuromuscular disorders, such as Bell palsy, cervical spondylosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain or spinal cord tumors, peripheral neuropathy, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome
5. Functional disorders, such as headache, seizure disorder, dizziness, and neuralgia
6. Degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer disease, and Huntington chorea
