Neurological Rehabilitation

If you or a loved one are confronting a neurological disorder diagnosis, we understand the difficult physical, emotional and psychological challenges that you may be feeling.

At Sheltering Arms Institute, we will work with you to develop a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan that focuses on your needs and concerns.

As a leader in rehabilitative care, we provide treatment for adults diagnosed with a broad range of neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, vestibular dysfunction, spinal cord injury and cerebral palsy.

Specialists from multiple disciplines including physiatrists, psychologists and physical, occupational and speech therapists will evaluate your condition with attention to strength, flexibility, muscle tone, movement patterns, balance and functional mobility. We’ll identify opportunities for improvement and develop a specific treatment plan to reach your goals.

Our therapists use a variety of therapy techniques and equipment including:

  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Balance activities
  • Use of assistive equipment/devices for gait training
  • Specialized therapy equipment such as splinting and bracing
  • Neurological re-education of movement patterns and functional activities
  • Adaptive sports and recreation
  • Compensatory techniques and strategies
  • Specialized rehabilitation services such as driving assessments and vision therapy
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Speech, language and swallowing therapies
  • Wheelchair services and seating assessments
