Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological Rehabilitation

Our neurological rehabilitation program is designed to meet the needs of the individual, depending on the specific problem or disease. Active involvement of the patient and family is vital to the success of our program.

The goal of neurological rehabilitation is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life — physically, emotionally, and socially.

In order to help reach these goals, neurological rehabilitation programs may include the following:

  • 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 behavioural skills retraining
  • Nutritional counselling
  • Involvement in community support groups
  • 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 counselling
  • Safety and independence measures and home care needs
  • Pain management
  • Stress management and emotional support
  • Nutritional counselling
  • Vocational counselling

  • Vascular disorders, such as ischemic strokes (caused by blood clots), hemorrhagic strokes (caused by bleeding in the brain), subdural hematoma, and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)
  • Trauma, such as brain and spinal cord injury
  • Structural or neuromuscular disorders, such as Bell palsy, cervical spondylosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain or spinal cord tumors, peripheral neuropathy, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Functional disorders, such as headache, seizure disorder, dizziness, and neuralgia
  • Degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer disease, and Huntington chorea
