Neuromuscular Rehab can maximize your safety, independence, and quality of life. Our Physical Therapists address walking, balance, coordination, movement quality, posture, and meaningful functional activities. Our Occupational Therapist will address Independent living skills, fine motor tasks and social skills needed.
The purpose of neuromuscular physical therapy is to examine, treat, and train individuals with neuromuscular diseases and injuries in order to limit their physical disability and reduce symptoms such as pain, muscle spasms and contractions, while addressing related structural and postural abnormalities.
Our Physical therapists will work to restore fitness and health, specifically locating areas of tissue spasm and helping to release it, finding and eliminating trigger points causing pain, and helping to restore postural alignment and flexibility.
The goal of physical therapy is to rebuild the strength of tissue injured by neuromuscular disease or injuries, to restore physical functioning as much as possible, and to improve the flow of blood and lymph in the body, promoting overall health.
Patients who may require neuromuscular physical therapy include people who have been injured in accidents and those who are disabled by:
- low back pain
- rheumatoid arthritis
- heart disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- head and spinal injuries
- multiple sclerosis and
- cerebral palsy
