Neurological Rehabilitation

In our physical and occupational therapy clinics, trained therapists provide neurological rehabilitation for nervous system disorders, defects and injuries that affect your daily life. Our therapists conduct a thorough evaluation to assess neurological deficits to help you meet your individual rehabilitation goals.  Our team can address difficulties with activities of daily living, balance, weakness, mobility, pain and more. Our goal is to move you toward greater independence and optimal function for a better quality of life.
