What is Neurological Rehabilitation?

Neuro rehab or neurological rehabilitation is a doctor-supervised program designed for individuals with injury, disorders or diseases of the nervous system. It helps reduce symptoms, improve function and enhance the individual’s well-being.

Why is Neuro Rehab the Need of the Hour?

Neuro rehab services are the need of the hour for several reasons, including:

  1. Increasing incidence of Neurological conditions:

    Neurological conditions, like Stroke, Traumatic Brain injury, and Multiple Sclerosis, are becoming increasingly common. This is partly due to an ageing population and an increase in risk factors such as sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition, and high-stress levels.

  2. Improved survival rates:

    Medical technology and emergency care advances have improved survival rates for patients with neurological conditions. However, many patients require ongoing rehabilitation to regain their function and independence.

  3. Economic impact:

    Neurological conditions can have a significant economic impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole. Rehabilitation can help reduce healthcare costs by preventing or minimising the need for long-term care.

  4. Quality of life:

    Neurological conditions can have a profound impact on a person’s quality of life, affecting their ability to work, socialise, and engage in everyday activities. Rehabilitation can help improve a person’s physical, cognitive, and emotional function, enhancing their quality of life.

  5. Multidisciplinary approach:

    Neurological rehabilitation requires an interdisciplinary approach, with input from neurologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals. This approach ensures patients receive comprehensive, personalised care that addresses their unique needs and goals.

1. How does Neurorehabilitation help with Stroke recovery?

Individuals who experience stroke suffer substantial Brain damage, which, if not attended to, can cause morbidity and mortality risk. Neurorehabilitation utilises occupational and physical therapy and the support of the individual’s family to help people who suffered from stroke regain their motor skills and adapt to re-learning based on their current abilities. It allows the individual to build their self-esteem and enables them to retrace their way back to community life.

3. What role does physical therapy play in Stroke recovery?

Physical therapy is crucial and essential part of stroke recovery and neurological rehab.

Stroke causes weakness or paralysis, making it difficult to perform daily activities. Physical therapy helps these individuals overcome these challenges and regain their independence. It also helps restore motor skills, improve balance and coordination and promote mobility and independence.

4. What is Neuromuscular electrical stimulation physical therapy?

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation physical therapy (NMES) is a type of physical therapy that uses a device that sends electrical impulses to nerves, causing muscles to contract. This electrical stimulation causes an increase in strength and range of motion. This treatment is used to re-train the muscles to function and build strength after surgery or a period of disuse.

5. What are our options for Stroke rehab?

Depending upon the individual’s condition, there is the following type of Stroke rehab options available:

  • In-patient rehab
  • Outpatient rehab
  • Home-based rehab
  • Tele-rehab
  • Community-based rehab

6. What are the physical symptoms associated with Brain injury?

Depending on the location and extent of the injury, Brain injuries can cause a wide variety of physical symptoms. The following are some of the most typical physical signs of Brain damage:

  • Headaches,
  • Lightheadedness and nausea,
  • vomiting,
  • exhaustion,
  • sensory alterations,
  • Changes in mood or behaviour,
  • Weakness in the muscles,
  • Seizures,
  • Issues with balance and coordination,
  • Trouble speaking or swallowing

It’s crucial to remember that a Brain injury’s symptoms can differ greatly from person to person and aren’t usually immediately obvious. It’s crucial to get medical help as soon as you can if you’ve had a head injury or believe you may have a Brain injury.

7. How does rehabilitation influence Brain Tumour surgery?

Rehabilitation can play an important role in the recovery process following Brain Tumour surgery. Brain Tumour surgery involves the removal of a portion or all of a tumor from the Brain, which can result in damage to surrounding healthy Brain tissue. This can lead to a range of neurological symptoms and deficits, including cognitive impairments, speech and language difficulties, motor deficits, and changes in mood and behavior. Rehabilitation can help to address these deficits and improve the overall functioning of the Brain following surgery. This may involve a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and cognitive rehabilitation. The specific approach to rehabilitation will depend on the individual patient’s needs and the extent of the damage caused by the surgery. Overall, rehabilitation can help to promote recovery and improve outcomes following Brain Tumour surgery. It is important for patients to work closely with their healthcare providers to develop an individualized rehabilitation plan that addresses their unique needs and goals.

8. Will a person with Spinal Cord Tumour recover?

The recovery from a Spinal Cord Tumour depends on various factors such as the size and location of the Tumour, the type of Tumour, and the overall health of the person. Some Spinal Cord Tumours are benign and slow-growing, while others are malignant and can rapidly spread to other parts of the body. The treatment options for a Spinal Cord Tumour may include surgery, Radiation therapy, and Chemotherapy, depending on the type and location of the Tumour. In some cases, a combination of these treatments may be required. In some cases, a person may experience partial or complete recovery after treatment, while in other cases, they may have long-term neurological deficits. It is important to discuss the potential outcomes and risks with the medical team to get a better understanding of what to expect out of Rehabilitation.

9. How to distinguish Spinal Cord injury from common symptoms like leg pain?

Spinal Cord injury (SCI) can result from damage to the Spinal Cord due to trauma, disease, or other medical conditions. The symptoms of SCI can vary depending on the severity and location of the injury. Leg pain can be a common symptom of SCI, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as a Herniated disc, Arthritis, or Nerve compression.

Here are some factors that can help differentiate between SCI and leg pain caused by other conditions:

Location of the pain:

In SCI, the pain typically affects both legs and is often accompanied by numbness or tingling in the legs or feet. In contrast, leg pain caused by other conditions may be limited to one leg or a specific area of the leg.

Presence of other Neurological symptoms:

In addition to leg pain, SCI can cause other neurological symptoms such as weakness or paralysis in the legs, loss of sensation, and difficulty controlling bowel or bladder function. These symptoms are not usually associated with leg pain caused by other conditions.

History of trauma:

SCI is often caused by a traumatic event such as a car accident, fall, or sports injury. If you have a history of such an event and are experiencing leg pain, it is important to seek medical attention to rule out SCI.

Timing of onset:

Leg pain caused by SCI may develop suddenly after a traumatic event, while leg pain caused by other conditions may develop gradually over time.

If you are experiencing leg pain and are unsure of the cause, it is important to seek medical attention. A healthcare professional can perform a physical exam, order imaging tests, and conduct neurological tests to help determine the cause of your symptoms.

10. How to take care of patients after Tracheostomy?

Tracheostomy is a procedure where a surgical incision is made in the neck to create an opening in the trachea (windpipe) to help the patient breathe. After a Tracheostomy, patients require proper care and management to prevent complications and promote healing. Here are some tips on how to take care of patients after Tracheostomy:

  • Keep the Tracheostomy site clean.
  • Monitor the patient’s breathing.
  • Check the Tracheostomy tube regularly.
  • Encourage mobility and activity.
  • Provide emotional support.

Our In-patient Rehab centre includes round-the-clock patient care along with emergency diagnosis test access.
