Rehabilitation for Stroke Recovery, Parkinson’s and Neurological Conditions

December 30, 2016 4:01 pm

Major brain injuries and degenerative neurological conditions are life-changing diagnoses that will often involve long-term rehabilitation. With a focus on helping patients reach their best quality of life, the physical medicine experts and rehabilitation specialists at The NeuroMedical Center offer both inpatient and outpatient rehab under one roof. Neurological rehabilitation helps to improve physical functioning and reduce movement limitations and pain associated with disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, peripheral neuropathy and other neurologic disorders, and brain injuries such as stroke. At The NeuroMedical Center, experienced physical medicine and pain management physicians work side-by-side with a team of certified physical, occupational, and speech therapists to provide comprehensive treatment to restore health, mobility, and self-confidence for patients.

Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility at The NeuroMedical Center

After experiencing a serious neurological event or brain injury, patients may require surgical interventions followed by extended rehabilitation. For stroke patients and individuals with disorders such as Parkinson’s or ALS who need more intensive rehab, The NeuroMedical Center offers an inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital that is located on the same campus as the main clinic and the physician offices. With a state-of-the-art, in-house rehabilitation facility within the same building, physicians are able to see their patients throughout their inpatient rehabilitation stay and during the course of their therapies. This fosters a seamless transition after neurosurgical intervention within an environment of coordinated care where the physician can be closely involved in their patient’s recovery. Additionally, the interdisciplinary team of physical medicine and pain management physicians, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropsychologists, speech language pathologists, physical, occupational and hand therapists collaborate to provide comprehensive and customized treatment. At The NeuroMedical Center Rehabilitation Hospital, patients receive the highest quality 24/7 care in a comfortable setting with the goal of restoring their independence and highest level of functioning after a stroke or other neurologic injury.

Advanced Outpatient Therapy Centers Across The Region

Following discharge from inpatient rehabilitation, most survivors of a brain or spine injury need outpatient therapy to continue regaining and refining their specific skills. The NeuroMedical Center offers patients convenient options for outpatient rehabilitation at its three Outpatient Therapy Centers across the region. The Outpatient Therapy Centers are staffed by highly trained physical, occupational and certified hand therapists that specialize in helping patients who are recovering from a brain or spinal injury. Committed to delivering the highest quality care and offering the latest therapy modalities available, the therapists at The NeuroMedical Center has achieved some of the top clinical designations in their areas of expertise. With specialized training in neurodevelopmental treatment, the Outpatient Therapy team is skilled in the latest hand-on therapy methods and utilization of the most advanced adaptive devices for treating the full spectrum of neurological and neuromuscular disorders and injuries.

The NeuroMedical Center’s Outpatient Therapy Centers offer leading-edge rehab technologies to assist the team of therapists in helping patients regain the control, physical capabilities and motor skills that patients need to perform daily tasks and live their lives independently. Our physical therapists are experts in gait training techniques to help patients achieve the strength and balance necessary to walk steadily and safely again. Patients who have suffered a stroke must often re-train their bodies to do everyday activities and patients who have lost physical functioning due to a neurological condition may need to develop new muscle skills to operate a wheelchair if they can no longer use their legs. To help facilitate patients’ return to functioning on their own as much as possible, our physical and occupational therapists provide specialized therapies to re-train the arms, legs and trunk of the body. The NeuroMedical Center’s Outpatient Therapy team also offers the FallTrak Balance System to help evaluate and develop a treatment plan for patients at risk for falls. In addition, the rehabilitation team provides guidance and recommendations on the most effective assistive equipment to meet a patient’s specific needs and impairments.
