Is Neurological Rehabilitation Right for You?
The types of patients and diagnoses seen at the Neurological Rehabilitation Program at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center may include, but are not limited to:
Stroke survivors/brain injury survivors
Stroke survivors/brain injury survivors may be seen anywhere from a few days after injury to many years later. Therapy services can continue to address motor recovery with the newest technology and latest treatment strategies. We address skills for improving self care, walking, and community independence and provide strategies to help with memory loss.
Parkinson’s disease patients see therapists skilled at providing treatments to improve balance and safety with walking. We promote the highest level of independence by using some strengthening and compensation strategies, as well as voice and swallowing impairments. Our speech and language pathologist is skilled in the Lee Silverman Voice Therapy LSVT LOUD™ voice treatment.
A specially trained therapist can address a number of voice disturbances such as dysphonias related to functional or neurological changes.
Return to driving. Speech pathologists and occupational therapists can test in-clinic skills related to driving, and provide strategies to treat specific impairments and recommend behind-the-wheel testing as appropriate.
Chronic motor impairments
We can coordinate with physicians to provide Botox, serial casting or other antispasticity treatments and acquire splinting, positioning, retraining devices like the Saebostretch, AFOs, and NMES for home.
Other diagnoses include
- Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA)
- Brain Tumors
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Adults with Cerebral Palsy
- Some Spinal Cord Injuries/Impairments
All of these types of patients and/or diagnoses may benefit from the skills, technology and treatment programs we offer.
