Neurological Disorders Alexandria, VA

Diseases and injuries to the nervous system can dramatically affect the way the body functions. The nervous system plays a huge role in our daily activities as it controls the muscles of the body, joint movements, and balance, and coordination. With an injury to the nervous system, simple tasks like walking, dressing, and feeding oneself can become major feats. Our physical therapists will help provide you with a comprehensive plan to help you reach your maximum level of function.

 

WHAT PHYSICAL THERAPY WILL HELP YOU WITH:

Improving function and safety
People suffering from neurological disease be at a higher risk for falling or injuring oneself.  Our PTs can teach how to safely roll over in bed, arise from a low chair, get in and out of car, and to teach you create the safest home environment possible. Our treatments will help you move better, safer and with greater strength.

Walking and balance
Many common neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis greatly affect balance more than most patients realize. Our therapists have extensive training to analyze your walking, balance and coordination and will train you with an appropriate assisted device. Our number one priority is giving you the ability to move around safely with greater ease.
