We Provide Neurological Physical Therapy and Higher-level Stroke Rehabilitation
SouthBay Rehabilitation provides quality neurological rehabilitation in the Torrance area for diseases, trauma, or disorders of the nervous system. A variety of conditions can impair the nervous system including injuries, infections, degenerative diseases, disorders in the circulatory system, structural defects, and tumors. We also offer neuromuscular therapy for people with disorders that affect the peripheral nervous system.
Neurological and neuromuscular disorders often result in muscle weakness, paralysis, poor balance, inability to ambulate, and loss of functional independence, and require prompt neurological rehabilitation.
SouthBay Rehabilitation’s experienced and licensed physical therapists have expertise in neurological rehabilitation, higher-level stroke rehabilitation, and neuromuscular therapy. We are committed to improving the health and well-being of our patients by helping them to maximize function and mobility so they can live life to the fullest.
Common conditions that benefit from neurological physical therapy include:
Avoid Other Problems
Injuries to the brain or spinal cord can cause the death of the cells that control certain movements and sensations, and can cause the loss of function. Without stroke rehabilitation or neurological rehabilitation following a neurological injury, patients may lose many functions and not be able to perform certain activities. Decreased activity leads to many other health problems such as heart problems, lung problems, diabetes, decreased independence, and an overall poor quality of life.
Following an injury, there is a certain amount of time when the cells that are not injured in the brain and spinal cord can learn to control the missing functions. Our stroke rehabilitation and neurological rehabilitation specialists are very knowledgeable about human movement and can teach patients how to move correctly again. This can help patients regain some to most of the functions they lost due to the injury. Many patients can learn to live independently again.
Neurological and Higher-level Stroke patients will have a personalized exercise plan to help expedite the rehabilitation of the affected areas and increase their ability to function better. Exercises may include Passive Range of Motion exercises if the patient is unable to move a limb on his/her own, or Active Range of Motion exercises to keep joints flexible, promote good circulation, and build up or keep muscles strong.
