Neurological Physical Therapy encompasses specialized comprehensive evaluation and treatment of individuals with movement problems due to disease or injury of the nervous system. Nervous system disorders comprise a diverse group of disorders that include brain, spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system. The common thread among all these injuries is the debilitation that typically results, which is often severe and chronic. Common impairments associated with neurologic conditions include weakness of limbs, impairments of vision, balance, ambulation, activities of daily living, movement, speech and loss of functional independence.
The department of Neurology at WellnessOne provides individualized one on one treatment with primary focus on restoring function and improving overall quality of life. The department offers specialized physical therapy and rehabilitation to those patients who have had or who currently have neurological diseases or injuries. These include Alzheimer's disease, ALS, brain injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, stroke and peripheral neuropathy. Our specialist neuro physiotherapists can help patients regain the functions they lost because of the injury. Most of the patients can learn to live their lives independently again, which makes them happier and contributes to their overall quality of life.
