Rehab for Other Neurological Conditions.

- Post-concussive syndrome
- Toxic exposure such as toxic leukoencephalopathy
- Brain and central nervous system tumors
- Brain infections
- Angelman syndrome
- Down syndrome
- Prader Willi syndrome

Our approach to treating neurological conditions
Regardless of diagnosis, our goal is to help patients who have neurological conditions live as fully and independently as possible. For example, Rehab Without Walls helps patients with neurological conditions:
- Maintain or improve mobility as much as possible
- Relearn fine motor skills
- Participate in exercises appropriate to their diagnosis
- Develop strategies to make daily life safer and easier
- Learn how to use adaptive equipment, assistive technologies
- Properly use medications and devices (such as infusions and implantable pumps)
- Manage the emotional challenges of their diagnosis
Like with all of our rehab programs, we work with the patient and family to set functional and personal treatment goals. We then build a multidisciplinary team and create a customized rehab program around those goals. We also provide supportive services, connecting patients and families with support services in the community.
