Petersen Physical Therapy offers neurological rehabilitation as a service in our east Mesa location at Power & Brown in Mesa.
What is neurological rehabilitation
Neurological rehabilitation is a specialized service that focuses on rehabilitating injuries, diseases, and disorders that affect the nervous system. These disorders are often debilitating and affect the individual’s quality of life in a major way. It can be a very complex process involving numerous modalities and techniques:
Speech therapy can be used in stroke patients and those with other disorders to aid in voice disorders, dysphagia (swallowing disorders), articulation disorders, and stuttering disorders.
Interactive metronome therapy is used to help the patient regain control over motor functions by rhythmically repeating exercises or motions.
Neurofeedback – a modality using real-time displays of brain activity in order to facilitate self-regulation of brain function. This has been shown to aid stroke survivors in maintaining positive changes in brain activity after treatment.
Brain Mapping (qualitative EEG or qEEG) is used to determine brain function and aid in neuro rehabilitation for stroke and other issues.
EMG Biofeedback as an adjunct to therapy, in order to aid the patient in gaining control in the long term.
IMPACT testing to assess the patient’s readiness to return to activities.
