Neurological Rehabilitation is a treatment method aimed at restoring or maximizing current functioning after diseases or traumas that cause disorders of the nervous system. This treatment requires many different specialists to work together to meet the physical, emotional, social and functional needs of the person.
Conditions covered by Neurological Rehabilitation include
- Brain and spinal cord trauma
- Brain and spinal cord tumors
- Nervous system infections
- Neurological diseases (e.g. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, ALS)
- Head traumas
- Diseases of the vessels of the brain and spinal cord
- Paralysis stroke partial paralysis (hemiplegia)
During the rehabilitation process, we first assess the person's functions and needs. Then, we create a personalized treatment plan and begin to implement it. The treatment plan may include different treatment modalities such as physical therapy, functional training, updating therapy, emotion and thought therapy.
The rehabilitation process can vary according to the person's needs and goals. For example, one person may want to regain the functions lost as a result of brain trauma, while another person may want to minimize the damage caused by a stroke. Our goal is to restore the person's quality of life and functionality at the highest level. Therefore, the rehabilitation process is continuous and should take into account that the person's needs may change.
Also, the person's family or close environment should be actively involved in the rehabilitation process. This helps the person to better adapt to the treatment and ensures better long-term outcomes. It is important that the family and close environment are informed about how to involve the person in the treatment, how to support them during the treatment process and how to move on in life after rehabilitation.
In conclusion, neurological rehabilitation is a treatment modality aimed at restoring or maximizing a person's function after diseases or traumas that cause disorders of the nervous system. During the rehabilitation process, an individualized treatment plan is created and different treatment methods are applied. At the same time, the person's family or close environment should be actively involved. Our aim is to restore the person's quality of life and functionality at the highest level.
