Neurological / Neuromuscular Disorders

Neurological disorders can severely impact your quality of life. Disease or injury to the nervous system can cause problems with walking, grasping objects, balance, vision or hearing. In severe cases, patients may experience pain, tremors and even paralysis. 

Physical therapy for neurological disorders leads to increased strength and greater levels of functioning. At Lake Regional, we listen to you, evaluate your needs and create a comprehensive plan to help you feel and function better.

Conditions we Treat

Neuromuscular disorders affect the nerves that control voluntary muscles. When these nerves are disrupted, it becomes difficult or impossible to control movement in affected areas, such as arms and legs. Neurological physical therapy includes evaluation and treatment of patients with movement problems due to disease or injury to the nervous system. 

Our physical, occupational and speech therapists are skilled in treating a variety of neurological disorders, including:

  • Stroke
  • Head Injury
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
  • Developmental delays/disorders

Treatment 

Lake Regional physical therapists help neurological patients by teaching them exercises that maintain muscle mass, improve walking skills, joint function and reduce muscle spasms. We focus on helping you achieve maximum recovery and improve your quality of life, using the most current technologies and evidence-based treatment methods.
