M&M Physical Therapy professionals can provide extremely beneficial treatments for patients with a variety of neurological conditions including, but not limited to: Cerebral Vascular Accidents (stroke), Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Spinal Cord Injuries. Neurological conditions can affect a person’s strength, range of motion, balance, cognition, walking ability (gait), and overall functional mobility. After receiving your initial neurological physical therapy evaluation conducted by a licensed M&M physical therapist, your personalized treatment program will be developed and monitored for progress as appropriate for your condition.
Based on your evaluation, your customized M&M Physical Therapy treatment may consist of:
- Strengthening exercises for your upper and lower body
- Stretching exercises
- Balance training
- Assistive device/gait training
- Stair/curb training
- Transfer training (including: standing up from a chair, bed mobility, getting up from the floor, getting in and out of a car)
- Education regarding safe mobility as well as education about home exercise programs.
It is important to note that no two patients with a neurological condition are alike, therefore, individualized physical therapy treatment is essential for your optimal recovery. At M&M Physical Therapy’s Center for Balance and Gait Dysfunction (link), our focus is developing personalized physical therapy strategies that are necessary for you to achieve your specific functional goals.
