Neurological rehabilitation can help improve quality of life for individuals who have neurological diseases or neurological injuries. Neurological disorders may be caused or affected by a variety of factors.
- Brain or spinal cord injury
- Brain tumor
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
Wellmont Health System offers a wide range of neurological services – including occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy – and takes a comprehensive, team-based approach to treating neurological disorders. With therapists from multiple neurological disciplines working together at facilities like the Rehabilitation Hospital of Southwest Virginia, Wellmont’s communication and coordination of neurological care are exceptional.
Support for Neurologic Rehabilitation Patients
Wellmont’s neurological rehabilitation staff members help support patient needs with convenient coordination of neurological rehabilitation appointment times. This often enables neurological patients to see multiple therapists on the same day, reducing the number of trips and transportation arrangements needed for neurological therapy visits.
Effective treatment for individuals with a neurological disease or neurological injury often involves the patient’s family. Wellmont’s neurological team members help educate family members on steps they can take to encourage and support their loved ones, aiding in the treatment process and improving the effectiveness of neurological treatment.
