Physical Therapy for Neurological Conditions

You don’t have to travel far from home for high-quality neurological physical therapy. The therapists at Fox Valley Physical Therapy and Wellness have unique skills for treating brain and spinal cord conditions. 

What is neurological physical therapy?

Many people think a physical therapist only treats patients recovering from surgery or physical injuries. With specialized training, our therapists also provide physical therapy for brain and spinal issues. The goal is to improve mobility and how a person functions in day-to-day life.

What neurological problems can physical therapy help?

The physical therapists at Fox Valley Physical Therapy and Wellness help patients with a wide range of conditions and injuries. Their unique qualifications combined with our practice-wide dedication to personalized care make our neurological physical therapy clinic one of the best in the area.

Some of the brain and spinal cord conditions we treat are:

  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Brain tumors
  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic back pain
  • Spine injury and trauma
  • Spinal surgery
  • Balance issues

Who can benefit from this type of therapy?

This specialized form of therapy can help people of all ages. Our pediatric physical therapy specialists can help babies and small children with central nervous system damage. Seniors who find themselves with balance issues are also great candidates for neurological physical therapy. Anyone with a brain or spinal cord issue should consider this type of therapy.

What should I expect from physical therapy for neurological conditions at Fox Valley Physical Therapy and Wellness?

Our practice mission is to give personalized, specialized care to each client. Of course, this commitment extends to our neurological physical therapy team. First, we will perform a thorough medical evaluation and discuss your symptoms with you. Then, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan that will work for you, both in the short- and long-term.

There are many treatment options that can improve mobility and function. Brain and spinal conditions usually respond well to these treatments. Depending on your condition, your plan may include one or more of the following treatments:

  • Exercises to improve flexibility and strength
  • Training on our AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
  • Neuromuscular reeducation to rebuild the connection between your neurological system and muscles
  • Movement retraining to help you learn new, more comfortable ways of moving
  • Vestibular rehabilitation to address inner ear balance issues
  • LSVT BIG treatment to help Parkinson’s patients improve mobility

Your personal physical therapy program will match your specific needs and treatment goals.

Ultimately, we will work together to improve and even restore your mobility after neurological damage. One of our primary goals is to reduce the need for more invasive treatments or surgeries. That said, if you’re not able to avoid invasive treatments, physical therapy for brain or spinal issues can help restore your mobility to its pre-treatment status or better.
