Other neurological conditions
- Functional Neurological Disorder is due to a problem with the functioning of the central nervous system.
- 50% of all Canadians – about 15 million people – have had a brain disorder impact their family.
- Very few neurological conditions are curable, and many worsen over time.
- Canadian adults with a neurological condition were twice as likely to report activity limitations and symptoms consistent with depression compared with the general population.
- Neurological diseases and disorders affect people of all ages.
- Neurological conditions account for more than half of Canadians requiring continuing care.
- In many cases treatment and healing is possible in improving symptoms.
- Neurorehabilitation is a developing field, offering the opportunity for powerful knowledge translation.
- New developments of functional neurorehabilitation could significantly improve the patients' quality of life.
- Progress in Gene Therapy for neurological disorders is very promising.
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by neurological disorders
“ Neurological disorders are diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. In other words, the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscles. ”Source: World Health Organization
Most common Conditions:
• Acoustic Neuroma
• Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
• Arteriovenous Malformation
• Balance and Gait problems
• Brain Aneurysm
• Brain Tumors
• Dural Arteriovenous Fistulae
• Parkinson's Disease
• Peripheral Neuropathy
• Post-Herpetic Neuralgia
• Spinal Cord Tumor
• Memory Disorders
• Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
We have developed experience with conditions such as :
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Head Injury
- Peripheral Nerve Injury
Our ApproachWe believe our approach can be applied in few separate or combined directions of rehabilitation:
- Complex neurorehabilitation of subjects after brain damage (including Polytrauma, Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke,Brain surgery).
- Movement rehabilitation: body segments alignment, posture, balance, gait, mobility of paretic limbs, muscular tonus, and etc.
- Cognitive and mood disorders: memory, attention (ADD),learning disabilities, speech, depressions and potentially PTSD
- Epilepsy, spasticity, essential tremor
Orthopedic enhancement and balance improvementThis is an area with which we have hands-on experience – Posture, Balance and Gait Recovery.
Balance recovery for subjects with professionally affected vestibular systems – e.g Meniere’s, Labyrintis, Ototoxic...
Rehabilitation of patients with partially injured or distressed spinal cords (Except in the case of complete transection)
We achieve maximal neurorehabilitation, by applying existing rehabilitation or recovery training procedures in conjunction with Non Invasive Neuromodulation (NIMM)
Conditions we treat:
- Post Concussion
- And other neurological conditions
Our Neuro-rehabilitation services
- Individualized programs encompassing physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language pathology services.
- Therapy programs to address pain management and improve strength, balance, fine motor control, mobility and community reintegration.
- Cognitive training for memory,attention and mental fluidity
