Neurological Rehabilitation Program

The Elliot Rehabilitation Services Neurological team is focused on maximizing the functional potential of each individual we treat. Neurological disorders can range from minimally involved to extremely involved where a patient’s entire way of life is completely disrupted. The neurological diagnoses that we treat include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Stroke/CVA
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • ALS - Lou Gehrig’s Disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Guillian-Barre Syndrome
  • Down Syndrome
  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy
  • Vestibular Disorders
  • Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion
  • Spinal Cord Injury – partial
  • Muscular Dystrophy

Neurological diagnoses/injuries can have a dramatic impact on someone’s life. The daily routine, from work to recreation, walking to dressing, speech to swallowing, can be affected. With the help of skilled therapists, patients can maximize function or learn new strategies to manage more involved limitations.


Approach

Our comprehensive team of caring clinician work together to meet the needs of everyone involved, from the patient to their family members. After a comprehensive evaluation, a customized treatment plan is established to achieve the patient's goals. We utilize a variety of advanced therapy techniques and modalities, including:

  • Gait Retraining
  • Balance Training
  • Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) - a hands-on therapeutic technique that influence relaxation, muscle tone, and muscle lengthening
  • Mobility Aids, such as, assistive devices and bracing options
  • Aquatic Therapy
  • Oral Motor and Swallowing Assessments


Advanced Care/Expertise

Our therapists enjoy working together on cases where an interdisciplinary approach is warranted. Having all disciplines (PT, OT and SLP) at one location helps aide communication among clinicians to ensure the patient is receiving the best and most appropriate care. Our staff has advanced neurological rehabilitation training and experience to capitalize on patient’s functional gains during therapy sessions and assure appropriate carryover into the home setting.

Additionally, our therapists work closely with various medical providers to assure the progress of the care plan is communicated.
