Neurological Disorders

Any individual who has neurological issues can benefit from specialized physical therapy. Unlike other therapies that focus on specific bone or muscle injuries, neurological therapists focus on the brain and the body. People suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, healing after a traumatic brain injury or recovering from a stroke are all potential candidates for this type of therapy. Therapists can work to increase the response of limbs, undo some forms of paralysis and strengthen muscles that have started to atrophy. Some neurological therapists are able to help patients get back to a state where living independently is possible again.
