Neurological physical therapy focuses on patients with neurological disorders and those with more severe disabilities. We have the ability to work with patients who have chronic disabilities. We also work with patients who have had amputations, spinal cord injuries, and major traumas.
We specialize in treatment of balance disorders, and assessment of fall risk and reducing the risk of falls. We treat patients with a variety of neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, strokes, myasthenia gravis, Guillan-Barré and many more.
We use standardized tests, including the Berg Balance Scale, and The Dynamic Gait Index among others to determine your risk for falls, recommend appropriate assistive devices to increase your safety during walking, and help determine appropriate strategies to keep you safer within your home and the community.
Using multiple approaches, we can work to regain function lost by a stroke. This may include the sensation and movement in your legs or trunk as well as coordination and balance. We are able to accommodate patients who are experiencing complete paralysis all the way through those who are experiencing trouble with higher level activities.
In conjunction with your physician, we can help you determine the source of your dizziness, or vertigo. If you have Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), we are able to perform maneuvers to reduce or resolve your symptoms, as well as help you learn how to manage any re-occurrences in the future.
