Neuro Rehab: A Second Chance At Life

Cadabams Neuro rehab is regarded as one of the best neuro care programs in Bangalore with a legacy of innovation and excellence. It is a comprehensive activity-based neurorehabilitation program aiming to help patients to regain strength, mobility, confidence and to improve quality of life after a stroke, spinal cord injury, major surgery or other neurological disorder.

What is Neurological Rehabilitation?

Neurological disorders or Neurosurgery may have serious complications that affect a patient’s mobility and motor function. It leaves the patient disabled in many ways like partial or complete paralysis, muscle weakness, loss of sensation, seizures, unexplained pain, and in some cases poor cognitive abilities. 

To overcome these neurological problems and reclaim motor function, patients may need extensive neurorehabilitation and neuro physiotherapy. Neuro rehab is a program where the patient is constantly under the supervision of Neurologists and Neuro Physiotherapists and a regimen is custom-tailored to help the patient regain mobility. 

Benefits of Neuro Rehab:

Patients who suffer from various neurological conditions experience loss of muscular functions, weakness, less stamina, a decrease in balance, and so on. Neurorehabilitation physiotherapy helps by working on the patient’s mobility-related disorders. It also helps provide a good outlook and confidence by improving their lost mobility: 

  • Enhanced balance and coordination
  • Improved walking
  • Optimizing the functions of affected areas
  • Increasing endurance and stamina
  • Enhances strength and reduces tension in affected muscles
  • Reduces any contractions
  • Encourages and optimizes independence
  • Relief from pain and inflammation
  • Posture correction
  • Increase in range of motion for joints
  • Improves cardio, especially respiratory functions
  • Enhances the quality of life for stroke patients

Neurological physiotherapy works by targeting and enhancing movement, strength, coordination, and balance. A neuro physiotherapist in Bangalore will start their treatment working on stimulating damaged nerves, and they will do so with various activities and exercises.

Approaches used during rehabilitation:

Bobath approach: Is used to improve functional movement. It relies on practising movement patterns and is launched as a step by step with the facilitation process that is initiated by a physiotherapist.

Brunnstrom approach: Here the patients will have to focus on functional movements, and it uses combinations of stimuli to elicit muscular movements.

Carr and Shepherd approach: This approach is used for enhancing functional movements which involve practicing the functional movements, as a whole process. This means that the patient cannot rely on just correctly performing the movements, but they have to keep rehearsing them repetitively to achieve the desired result.
