Rehabilitation of Neurological Conditions
Neurological rehabilitation is designed for people with diseases, injury, or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehab can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient.
What conditions can benefit from neurological rehab?
Injuries, infections, degenerative diseases, structural defects, tumours, and disorders in the circulatory system can impair the nervous system. Some of the conditions that may benefit from neurological rehab may include:
- Vascular disorders, such as ischemic strokes (caused by blood clots), haemorrhagic strokes (caused by bleeding in the brain), subdural hematoma, and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)
- Infections, such as meningitis, encephalitis
- 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 tumours, peripheral neuropathy, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome
Degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer disease
