At Caroling Physical Therapy, we treat the physical symptoms of these neurological conditions including:
- Head injury
- Spinal injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Balance dysfunction
These debilitating conditions leave patients with loss of balance, muscle tightness, and weakness. Often simple activities such as rolling over, getting up from sitting, and walking are affected. Our goal is to get our patients back to normal daily function.
If you or a loved one has suffered a stroke, you understand the debilitating after-effects it can have on the body. Even though the effects can change your mobility, it doesn’t mean you cannot relearn or redefine how you live. Although rehab cannot reverse the effects of a stroke, it can help you build your strength, capability, and confidence so you can continue your daily activities.
What will I do in rehab?
- Self-care skills such as feeding, grooming, bathing, toileting, and dressing
- Mobility skills such as transferring, walking, or self-propelling a wheelchair
- Communication skills in speech and language
- Cognitive skills such as memory or problem-solving
- Social skills for interacting with other people
Physical therapists use exercise to improve balance, flexibility, strength, and functional abilities. They also show patients techniques to improve transfers and mobility. When needed, patients are instructed in the use of canes and walkers and are educated in energy-saving techniques.
