Neurological physical therapy is extremely important for those patients who have had or who currently have neurological diseases or injury. Without neurological physical therapy following a neurological injury, patients may lose many functions and not be able to perform certain activities. Decreased intensity of activity leads to many other health problems such as decreased independence, lung problems, and overall poor quality of life.

Our specialized neurological team has received comprehensive training in the rehabilitation of patients who have been diagnosed with a neurological disease or injury.
