Neurological Therapy

Coastal Rehabilitation offers a complete range of services to address neurological issues. Neurologic physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy in which treatment is focused on movement problems due to disease or injury of the nervous system. The nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and a network of peripheral nerves; these control your sensations and movements. When there is damage (from injury or disease) to any part of this system, the impaired sensation or motor control can lead to loss of function.

CRI physical therapists are experts in funtional movement. Your physical therapist will teach you how to move and regain function again. CRI physical therapists are qualified to examine you and develop an individualized program designed to help address the impairments from neurologic conditions. Physical therapists help you move better, function optimally, and prevent disability or progression of disability. Your physical therapist can help to improve your mobility and function and to improve your quality of life.

Neurologic physical therapy not only provides an individualized program to restore mobility and function; your physical therapist will educate you on how to prevent or manage your health condition. CRI physical therapists motivate you throughout your sessions so you can gain maximum functional mobility and heighten your quality of life. A primary long term goal in neurologic physical therapy is for your physical therapist to work with you to help you understand your body and any neurological conditions to maximize your long term health and function.

Neurological physical therapy treats many neurological conditions including (but not limited to): ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, radiculopathy, Guillian Barre Syndrome, Ataxia and many more.

Neurologic physical therapy focuses on the impairments associated with neurologic conditions such as: balance, vision, ambulation, mobility, function, activities of daily living, postural control, and safety.
