Neurorehabilitation is a collection of processes that are case specific which focus on aiding a person’s recovery, or help that individual to live a more normal, active, and independent life. The quality of life of a person can be greatly affected by a brain or spinal cord injury, or a medical condition which affects the mobility, cognitive functions, or other physical or psychological processes that have been affected by changes in the nervous system. The goal of neurorehabilitation is to combat those changes and improve quality of life by various therapies.
Conditions Commonly Treated by Neurorehabilitation
Physical and occupational therapies are important parts of neurorehabilitation. Physical therapy in helping patient’s recovery includes: balance retraining, gait analysis and transfer training, neuromuscular retraining, orthotics consultations, and aqua therapy. It is usually a long process and requires a lot of patience and work by a therapist.
