Neurological Physical Therapy

At PT Plus Physical Therapy our physical therapists specialize in the evaluation and treatment of individuals who are suffering from disease or injury of the nervous system. This type of disease or injury can affect a patient’s natural movement. We aim to improve or restore mobility in these patients to improve quality of life.

Our individualized programs at PT Plus Physical Therapy will work to treat patients who have suffered conditions such as:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Guillain Barre Syndrome
  • Ataxia
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Polyneuropathies
  • Progressive neurological conditions
  • Spasticity/tone

Patients who have had or who currently have neurological diseases or injuries are at high risk of mobility loss. It is superlative that they receive neurological physical therapy to ensure a functioning quality of life. When injuries to the brain, spinal cord or central nervous system occur, it affects movement and sensation and can create loss of function within patients. Neurological physical therapy aims to increase the odds of regaining function to the body. Without therapy, patient’s physical and mental health will decrease and may lead to weight gain and other serious health problems. Essentially a poor quality of life.

Our physical therapists will educate and assist patients on how to properly function again. Most, if not all functions may be regained during this course of therapy. Thus improving over all quality of life and independence for the patient.
