Neurological Disorders

Diseases and injuries to the nervous system can have dramatic effects across the body affecting one’s ability to function. Simple tasks can become extremely difficult and one’s independence can be lost. The nervous system controls the muscles of the body, joint movements, balance, and coordination. It is important to note that with the right kind of therapy you can improve your level of function, relieve pain, improve your balance, and enhance walking and safety. Receiving a diagnosis of a neurological condition, or experiencing something like a stroke or spinal cord injury can be scary. But, we have an experienced team of physical therapists that can help you navigate the ups and downs of your recovery, or guide you as you adapt to your “new normal.”

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Stroke (CVA) – Cerebrovascular Accident
