Neurological
Services

Physical therapy can help people recover more quickly from neurological injuries so you can get back to life faster. Every brain and nervous system is unique and our individualized patient centered approach is the key to your success.

Brain Scans

Conditions Treated

Neurological Conditions fall into several categories:

  • Balance problems/falls

  • Neuropathy

  • Stroke/Cerebrovascular Accident

  • Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

  • Transverse Myelitis

  • Parkinson's Disease

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Guillain Barre 

  • Bell's Palsy

  • Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome

  • Vasovagal Disorders

  • Vertigo/Vestibular Disorders

Falls and Balance Problems

Falls cause billions of dollars per year in health care costs. If possible, the time to deal with a balance problem is before you break a hip, not after injury has occurred. Physical therapy can help optimize your balance to help keep you independent.

We offer:

  • Balance screening to assess your risk.

  • Balance training programs to target the areas where you struggle.

  • Physical therapy services after a fall to help you regain your independence.

Parkinson's Disease

     People with Parkinson's Disease report a variety of symptoms including tremors, freezing, difficulty walking, shuffling their feet, frequent falls, difficulty with fine motor tasks (like handwriting and buttoning shirts), and decreased voice volume when talking. They can also experience depression, anxiety, insomnia, and hallucinations. So how do we treat it?

     LSVT Big is a Parkinson's targeted exercise program to help manage the physical and social impact of Parkinson's on a patient's quality of life.

Looking for something more individual? We will tailor an exercise program to meet your specific symptom complaints if you've already tried LSVT in the past and are looking for something new.

Specialty Services

Healing your nervous system sometimes requires special expertise. Our staff are pleased to offer

  • LSVT Big Program for Parkinson's Disease

  • Vibration plate assisted therapy for patients with neurological muscle tone and spasticity

  • Dry needling for neurogenic pain and muscle tone regulation

  • Facial Electrical Stimulation - a specialized treatment to help muscles in the face move again in people with Bell's Palsy.

  • Mirror therapy - targeting the mirror neurons in the brain to help with recovery

What to Expect

     Your physical therapist will take time to listen to your concerns, ask questions about your condition and understand your personal goals. Next, they will take you through a series of movements and tests to assess the function of your nervous system and how it affects your muscles and other tissues.

     After establishing the areas that need improvement, your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan to help your nervous system heal and communicate with the rest of your body more effectively. This may include exercises, manual therapy treatments, neural stimulation techniques, education and other strategies to improve your symptoms and functional limitations.

Brain Injury/Stroke

     Every person's brain is unique and your physical therapy should be too. We offer one on one patient care so your provider can focus on learning about your individual needs and creating a rehabilitation program to help you meet your goals accordingly.

     We strive to make healthcare as accessible as possible. Getting in quickly can make all the difference when it comes to recovery from brain injuries. To streamline the process, we don't require a referral for you to be evaluated.

     If your injury has limited your ability to drive, we also offer concierge services where a therapist will come to your home.

Bell's Palsy

Bell's Palsy is a paralysis of the facial muscles. While 90% of cases will resolve independently without treatment within a year, that is a long time to wait. To speed your recovery, physical therapy treatment may involve:

  • Facial exercises

  • Neurological facilitation techniques

  • Dry needling to stimulate blood flow

  • Electrical stimulation targeted to the facial muscles

  • Education on compensation strategies while you are healing.
