Other Neuro

There many different neurological conditions that can require inpatient acute rehab.  A few examples are Multiple sclerosis (M.S.), Parkinson Disease, Spinal cord injuries (non – traumatic and traumatic), and Guillain – Barre Syndrome.

The neuro rehab team identifies five key therapeutic objectives geared toward the individual neurological rehabilitation needs for the patient:

  • Provide a quality rehabilitation programs based on individual and family needs
  • Restore the patient’s abilities  to their maximum level of function
  • Educate the patient and family/caregiver on the specific type of injury/exacerbation of condition
  • Provide ongoing psychosocial support in a therapeutic environment
  • Support the patient’s long – term goals by offering continuous outpatient therapies

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

Parkinson Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly in most people. What this means is that individuals with PD will be living with PD for twenty years or more from the time of diagnosis. However, having PD does not mean you cannot have a good quality of life. Because there is no cure, your doctors will be focused and dedicated to finding treatments that help control the symptoms of PD and enable you to manage your PD.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Guillain-Barre syndrome is an uncommon disorder in which your body’s immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and numbness in your extremities are usually the first symptoms. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body. The exact cause of Guillain-Barre syndrome is unknown, but it is often preceded by an infectious illness such as a respiratory infection or the stomach flu. Luckily, Guillain-Barre syndrome is relatively rare, affecting only 1 or 2 people per 100,000.

In its most severe form, Guillain-Barre syndrome is a medical emergency requiring hospitalization. There’s no known cure for Guillain-Barre syndrome, but several treatments can ease symptoms and reduce the duration of the illness. And most people do recover completely.
