Neurological Injury

Neurological Injury

Neurological injuries are vast and varied and can occur without warning. Some injuries have a gradual onset, while others are sudden. Common diagnoses include cerebrovascular accident (CVA/stroke), brain tumors, Parkinson’s Disease, and paralytic injuries.

Common symptoms of neurological injury include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Imbalance
  • Ataxia
  • Paresis or paralysis in part or all of an area
  • Difficulty with daily activities
  • Spasticity

The goal of physical therapy in treating neurological injuries is to work to maximize function. This may include training to help with walking or daily activities, exercise to restore or improve strength, balance treatments, and improving overall functional movements.

Our therapists have years of experience in treating neurological injuries and work to return as much function as possible after injury.
