Neurology & Physical Therapy

Neurology is intricately entwined with Physical Therapy, many injuries, require as much mental healing, as they do physical healing, knowing that, we integrate both into our treatment programs.

Neurology is the medical specialty which studies the structure, functions, and abnormalities of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. The neurologist has a key role in evaluation and management of patients with related conditions and trauma. The head, spine, and nerve injuries are among the most common seen by neurologists. Common neurological symptoms after a related injury may include: headaches, dizziness, memory disturbance, walking difficulties, weakness in the arms or legs, numbness or tingling, neck and/or low back pain.

The role of the neurologist in the rehabilitation of the injured patient often includes defining the extent of neurological damage and developing a plan for medical, pharmacological and rehabilitation management. In the privacy of an exam room, a neurologist examines all aspects of the individual's nervous system that provides useful information regarding diagnosis and treatment. In addition, a neurologist may order diagnostic studies that can include MRI's, CAT SCAN, X-rays, NCV, and EMG for a more accurate diagnosis. The neurologist interacts with the rehabilitation team to develop a comprehensive rehabilitation program to address each patient's particular needs.
