Neuro-rehabilitation is the concept of a multidisciplinary program to aid in patient recovery after the development of a neurologic condition (Ex. stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, etc). The comprehensive program is supervised by a rehab doctor and may involve multiple rehab specialists individualized to the need of each patient. The goal is to improve patient function, reduce burden of symptoms and improve quality of life after a neurologic change. We also provide follow up and treatment for chronic complications due to a neurologic event.
Rehabilitation may take place in an inpatient hospital, skilled nursing facility, long term acute care facility, outpatient rehab clinic or your own home depending on your medical and functional needs. Interdisciplinary team members may include the following: rehab physician (aka physiatrist), neurologist or other physician specialist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, dietician, social worker/case manager, health care psychologist, recreational therapist and/or vocational rehab counselor.
