Serious injuries and conditions that affect the nervous system can make it difficult to perform regular tasks and functions, effectively stealing your independence.
Neurological rehabilitation can help recover what you’ve lost, minimizing the impact of your condition through a customized treatment plan.
What is neurological rehabilitation?
Neurological rehabilitation (or neuro rehab) is the assessment and ongoing treatment for those with movement and functional problems caused by conditions or injuries to the nervous system.
Research on the brain shows us that this powerful organ has an incredible capacity to change and adapt, following alterations to the body or environment—such as an injury or condition. This capability to adapt is referred to as plasticity. Neurological rehabilitation specialists use this capacity to improve or create new neuropathways through various training and exercises, returning you to—or close to—the level of function you had previously. It’s all about teaching your body new ways of moving.
