cOMPREHENSIVE CARE

FOR other neurological disorders

 

“More significant progress in my strength and ability than I have ever experienced at any other facility…attribute to the dedication, passion and expertise of the staff and volunteers”

- Letitia C., Transverse Myelitis Patient

 

TREATING OTHER DISORDERS

We may also able help patients living with other kinds of chronic neurological disorders, such a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and hereditary diseases, like Ataxias. If you have such a disorder of know of someone who has, feel free to call to discuss the need and consider an evaluation, from which we will assess the extent to which we can help and make a recommendation. As with all our evaluations, we would seek the approval of your physician before starting any therapy.

 

OUR APPROACH TO TREATMENT

For example, we might recommend an exercise program with our Director of Exercise Therapy - who is highly skilled in shaping the exercise to address specific issues arising from a chronic neurological condition, like mobility and strength. On the other hand, we may suggest you join in our Stroke/TBI or PD programs. Possible therapeutic activities are listed below.
