Neurological Disorders Care & Recovery
Perfecting the Art of Recovery – One Step at a Time
The Importance of Rehabilitation for Neurological Disorders
When your loved one suffers a neurological injury such as a stroke, rehabilitation services will likely begin while they are in the hospital receiving treatment. This is because the earlier the intervention, the better their recovery outcome can be. It is also important to start rehabilitation if your loved one is diagnosed with a neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease).
How Long Does Rehab for Neurological Disorders Last?
Each person who is going through rehabilitation for conditions such as stroke will have an individualized length of stay at Stone Rehab. Some will recover rather quickly, while others may require a longer recuperation or transition to a long-term care facility after their stay at Stone Rehab. The team assigned to you or your loved one continuously assesses recovery while addressing individual needs.
The Stone Rehab Difference
Neurological disorders and injuries require customized care. Since people recover differently, Stone Rehab utilizes a team of highly specialized physical, occupational and speech therapists who work closely with our physicians to create a personalized treatment plan. Physical therapy focuses on strengthening muscles, ensuring there is no atrophy and increasing range of motion. Occupational therapy assists in regaining independence and accomplishing activities of daily living. This includes showering, brushing teeth, getting dressed and more. Speech therapy addresses any communication problems and helps with swallowing, as well as speech and language difficulties. Our team finds the best way to treat you or your loved one, helping regain a sense of independence and enjoyment of each day.
As you work with our therapists, you will see an improvement in motor skills, balance, speech and more. Our team is committed to helping you reduce the risk of another episode, control potential life-threatening complications and stabilize your current situation.
