Neurological Rehabilitation

Our Physical and Occupational therapists provide comprehensive assessments and individualized treatment plans for a variety of patients including patients suffering from:
  • Stroke

The goal of our treatment program is to maximize a client’s functional capacity in the home, work and community setting.

Interventions used in neurological rehabilitation may include:
  • Therapeutic exercise programs focused on improving function
  • Adaptive equipment training (i.e. one handed cutting board, etc)
  • Neuromuscular re-education of movement and activity patterns and tasks
  • Compensatory techniques and methods to improve independence
  • Balance and falls intervention
  • Recommendations for assistive devices
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Patient and family education
  • Visual-perceptual skills
  • Transfer and gait training
  • Self-care abilities/activities of daily living
  • Fine Motor skills
  • Instruction in a home therapy program
  • Decision making, problem solving, safety, and judgment issues

Patients are typically seen two to three times per week and sessions are coordinated between occupational and physical therapy. Progress is closely monitored and discharge from therapy is based upon achievement of treatment goals.
