Neuro-rehabilitation is a program supervised by a medical professional for people with neurological diseases, injuries, or disorders. It often results in a reduction of symptoms and improvement of function and well-being of the patient.
Patients suffering from infections, injuries, structural deformities, degenerative diseases, and circulatory system disorders can have nervous system impairment. Following are some of the neuro conditions that may benefit from neuro-rehabilitation:
The neurological rehab team consists of many skilled medical professionals, including a neurosurgeon or a neurologist, orthopaedic surgeon or an orthopaedist, psychiatrist, internist, registered dietitian, rehabilitation specialists, occupational therapist, physical therapist, speech therapist, psychologist, recreational therapist, audiologist, vocational counsellor, social workers, and allied staff.
A neuro-rehabilitation program is designed to meet the individual needs of the patient, depending on their specific disease or disorder. Its goal is to help the patient return to a normal level of function and independence as much as possible while improving the physical, emotional, and social quality of life of the patient.
To achieve these goals, neurological rehabilitation programs help the affected patients with anxiety, stress, and depression management, return to daily activities like eating, handwriting, dressing, cooking etc., retraining for social and behavioural skills, nutritional counselling, and exercise programs to increase the strength of the muscles, and speech therapy.
