Neurological Physical Therapy
Neurological physical therapy focuses on helping individuals improve movements who have a neurological injury or disorder. Physical therapy will help you to achieve a higher level of function and independence. Neurological injuries and disorders include a variety of problems that can be caused by injuries, infections, age-related degeneration, structural defects, and tumors.
Physical therapy is very important for patients who have a neurological disease or injury. The brain and spinal cord control movement and sensation, but injuries to the brain and spinal cord can cause these cells to die. Without physical therapy this can result in the loose of movement and function. Following an injury there is a period of time when the healthy cells in the brain and spinal cord can learn to control the functions that have been affected. Physical therapy will help prevent the loose of function during this time by teaching patients how to move.
