This rehab can slow the development of these degenerative diseases, and sometimes reverse them. Rehab can also help with communication skills such as writing, or speaking, which may need to be relearnt to some extent.
It provides patients with the loving and compassionate care they need to tackle various issues of daily living. These include dressing, using the bathroom, balancing, coordination and even swallowing food.
Neurological rehab can reduce symptoms and improve mental health, brain function, mobility and overall well-being. Different strands of rehab help in different ways. For instance, the occupational health component of rehab can teach patients step-by-step tricks to perform specific tasks of daily living. Combined with speech, swallowing, and physical therapies, the overall impact of an integrated approach can significantly improve mental problems.
Symptoms of various neurological problems can certainly come and go over time, depending on their severity and the specific disease. They can also vary in location and persist for shorter or longer periods, and even come in waves. It is quite common, for instance, to appear to be recovering from multiple sclerosis, only to have a relapse later on.
Neurological rehab is usually a longer-term program and takes account of the fact that symptoms come and go. It seeks to improve the body’s various functions – also through nutritional counselling – and help patients relearn skills, as necessary.
