What is neuro-rehab?
is the application of methods from neurology, psychiatry, pain
medicine (algology), rheumatology, neuropsychology, physical and
rehab medicine, and general medicine, to improve the functioning,
and thus the lives, of patients who have had injuries to some part
of their nervous system.
These conditions can include injury to the brain itself,
injuries to muscles and the nerves therein, injuries to the spinal
cord, and injuries to peripheral nerves and the joints they
The common denominator across all of the above conditions is that
they all result in some degree of loss of function in the patients
That is, they reduce the patient's ability to go about
their lives in a normal manner.
The condition might limit the patient's ability to
communicate or perform cognitive tasks.
It might limit the patient's ability to walk for any
distance, or to lift normal objects.
It might destroy the patient's ability to grasp and hold
objects, or it might cause in inability to perform one's normal
work activities or those around the home.
attempts to restore the functions lost to the disabling disease or
is done through the use of medications, taken orally or injected
into target regions (e.g. joints), electromedicine interventions,
physical therapy, guided exercise programs, nutritional counseling,
and paced re-entry into former activities.
Also, neuro-rehab involves directly treating co-morbid
conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, and obesity, that
literally combine with the disabling condition to further disable
the patient and reduce function.
