What is neurological physical therapy?

Neurological physical therapy helps patients dealing with neurological disorders. The nervous system controls all the workings of the body, so when it’s negatively affected, you can experience difficulty with movement, balance, speech, swallowing, and breathing. Neurological disorders can affect your memory and ability to learn. Neurological physical therapy helps to counter these negative impacts and allows patients to maintain independence.

Benefits of neurological physical therapy

After a comprehensive evaluation of function and a discussion about challenges, your neurological physical therapy treatment will be tailored to your specific needs. Through strengthening, manual therapy, balance, gait training, and assistive technology, we help you maintain and regain function due to injury or the impact of a disease.
