Neurological rehabilitation is a program designed for people with diseases, trauma, or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehabilitation can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient. The goal of neurological rehabilitation is to help the patient return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving the overall quality of life — physically, emotionally, and socially.

  • Stress, anxiety, and depression management
  • Bladder and bowel retraining
  • Activities to improve mobility (movement), muscle control, gait (walking), and balance
  • Exercise programs to improve movement, prevent or decrease weakness caused by lack of use, manage spasticity and pain, and maintain range of motion
  • Social and behavioral skills retraining
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Activities to improve cognitive impairments, such as problems with concentration, attention, memory, and poor judgment
  • Help with obtaining assistive devices that promote independence
  • Patient and family education and counseling
