What is neurological care?

Physical therapists specializing in neurological care have completed additional training to treat conditions such as a stroke, Parkinson’s disease, dizziness and multiple sclerosis, among others. Therapy techniques may include constraint-induced movement therapy, functional electrical stimulation, motor imagery and mental practice, positioning, virtual reality and partial body weight support. Because some medications used to manage symptoms may have an immediate effect, your therapist will take special care to time treatments, exercise and activity based on both the schedule and the impact of their medications to get the best results.

What are the benefits?

Physical therapy is at the forefront of innovating techniques for rehabilitation and management of symptoms related to neurological disorders. Your physical therapist will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. Physical therapy can help improve balance and walking, regain strength and function, decrease the likelihood of depression in patients with Parkinson’s disease and help you with the functional skills necessary to participate in activities important to you.
