Neuro-rehabilitation is the sub-speciality that deals with diseases, injury, or disorders of the nervous system. It can normally improve function, reduce symptoms, furthermore helps recover the well-being and quality of life of the individuals.

Neuro Rehabilitation can help manage the following Disorders:

  • Vascular system disorders such as ischemic heart disease, hemorrhagic strokes, and subdural hematoma
  • Meningitis
  • Encephalitis
  • Polio
  • Brain abscesses
  • Injuries of the brain and spinal cord
  • Bell palsy
  • Cervical spondylitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Parkinson disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Neuro Rehabilitation

The neurological therapy panel comprises of the Neurosurgeon, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Rehabilitation Specialists, Occupational Therapist, Language Therapist, Audiologist & a Vocational Counsellor. The specifically formulated rehabilitation programs help meets individualized needs based on the specific disease. Goal of neurological rehabilitation is to achieve the utmost level of function while improving the quality of life of the individuals both emotionally as well as physically. To attain these goals our programs comprise of the following list of activities,

  • Speech therapy to help assist speaking, reading, and writing

  • Activities to enhance movement, gait and balance coordination
  • Counselling regarding the nutrition

Therapies of neurorehabilitation

  1. Constraint-induced movement therapy and other intensive, experience-dependent learning may improve rehabilitation outcomes in people with hemiparesis from stroke and other brain disorders.
  2. Constraint-induced language therapy and other methods to stimulate speech and motor output may improve rehabilitation outcomes in aphasia.
  3. Prism adaptation therapy and therapies using virtual feedback and implicitly integrating 3D motor and perceptual function may improve function in spatial neglect.
  4. Transcranial magnetic stimulation may induce a permissive brain state therapeutic for depression and promoting better motor and cognitive recovery.
  5. Transcranial direct current stimulation may promote better mood and motor and cognitive rehabilitation outcomes and has an appealing risk/cost profile for feasible future implementation
