Advanced Recovery from Injury and Illness
advanced physical therapy provides neurological therapy for clients recovering from strokes or traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries as well as clients with multiple sclerosis and other nerve-related pathologies. In addition to comprehensive evaluations, hands-on manual therapy, intensive one-on-one movement, and skills training with strengthening and conditioning as needed, clear communication between the patient, caregiver, and therapist will result in improved cognitive processing and performance.
Comprehensive evaluations may include one or more of the following:
- Activity tolerance
- Strength and balance
- Spasticity and coordination
- Gait analysis and functional motion
- Clinical examination to determine associated, painful orthopedic disorders
Rehabilitation involves focused attention and care for you as well as your current conditions. Functional gains are enhanced with the use of specialized equipment like unweighting equipment, a standing frame, BionessTM, Nintendo Wii-Fit training, or video recording.
