Neurological Rehabilitation Q & A

What is Neurological Rehabilitation?

Neurological rehabilitation is a program supervised by doctors that aims to help people recover from diseases, disorders, or injuries affecting the nervous system.

Neurological conditions often cause debilitating weakness, poor balance, and reduced mobility that can interfere with your ability to perform daily activities.

The neurological rehabilitation program at NJ Spine and Wellness helps you regain your balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility. The goal is to improve your quality of life through the use of specific therapeutic exercises.

Who can Benefit from Neurological Rehabilitation?

You could benefit from neurological rehabilitation if you have a brain or spinal cord injury, or any of the following disorders:

  • Vascular Disorders: Vascular disorders include ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), and subdural hematomas.
  • Infections: Infections may include meningitis, polio, encephalitis, and brain abscesses.
  • Structural or Neuromuscular Disorders: Structural or neuromuscular disorders include Bell's palsy, brain or spinal cord tumors, peripheral neuropathy, cervical spondylosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and muscular dystrophy Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome, and myasthenia gravis.
  • Degenerative Disorders: Including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), and Huntington's chorea.
  • Functional Disorders: Functional disorders include headaches, seizure disorders, and dizziness could also benefit from neurological rehabilitation.
