What is neurological therapy?

Neurological therapy is rehabilitation designed for people with injuries, diseases, or conditions that affect the nervous system. This includes patients with ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, MS, or spinal cord injuries, as well as those who are recovering from strokes.

These types of conditions can result in difficulty with balance, movement, and speech, all of which can be greatly improved with the help of an experienced physical therapist. In addition, physical therapy can slow or prevent greater loss of function.

Why do patients need neurological therapy?

Patients with diseases that affect the brain, or who have experienced injuries or other traumatic events that have resulted in brain damage, are often strong candidates for neurological therapy. Neurological therapy is used both to improve mobility and functioning and to prevent further injury, as patients with neurological conditions tend to have difficulty with balance and are susceptible to falls.

The most common reasons for neurological therapy include:

  • Spinal cord or brain injuries
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis

Physical therapy for Neurologic therapy in Santa Monica, California

Because neurological physical therapy can be used to treat a wide range of neurological conditions, treatment plans vary vastly from patient to patient. Generally, a plan will include gentle exercises that a patient can perform on their own, such as flexibility and strength exercises, mobility training, neuromuscular re-education, and motor retraining.

A neurological physical therapist will begin a treatment program with a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s needs, condition, and goals. Over time, a physical therapist can help the patient regain much of their lost function and return to a life of independence.
