In addition to their potentially devastating emotional effects, neurological conditions can have a profound physical impact on movement and balance. Strokes, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological conditions affect the connection between the brain (the body’s computer) and the body. Stroke patients need progressive treatment to help the brain and body adjust how they “speak” to each other and how the body follows the brain’s commands. The tremors and other symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease can cause a loss of confidence in the activities of daily life which we can help rebuild.
It’s important to begin detailed, individualized therapy as soon as possible after you are diagnosed with these and other neurological conditions. Whatever our patients’ neurological issues, EW Motion Specialists (Motion Specialist team consists of Nationally Certified Physical Therapists, fitness professionals and instructors) are committed to making their lives better.
Common diagnoses include: Alzheimer’s Disease, Cerebral Vascular Accidents, Multiple Sclerosis, Neurological disorders affecting balance, strength, or motor control, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke.
