Rehabilitation begins when all the neurological impairments and functional deficits have been identified/documented. Objectives then developed and rehabilitation tools used to achieve the objectives.
Range of motion exercises:
Range of motion should be maintained in all joints affected by neurological diseases. Skeletal muscle loose tone if not used and joints can develop contractures passive range of motion exercise used to overcome these deleterious effects of immobility.
Muscles of swallowing are be affected by many neurological disorders speech therapy
Loss of control of bladder emptying and bowel control is common in neurological conditions important part of neurorehabilitation program.
Patients are trained to use their joints and muscles efficiently.
More than just exercise – co-ordinated use of all structures that is involved in desired movements.
Restoration of sensory appreciation is just as important as motor education.
Ultimate goal of neuromuscular re-education is achieving a satisfactory gait.
Used to support, brace, control, immobilise body segments.
