Neurological Physical Therapy
Focuses on retraining central pathogens to compensate for damage caused by any neurological condition to help our patients become as safe and independent as possible.
Neurological Occupational Therapy
Focuses on life skills to return the patient to independent living.
At OakBend Balance & Neuro PT, we pride ourselves in our ability to stay focused on the end result, our patients! Our neurological physical and occupational therapists work hand-in-hand to improve the quality of life for our brain injured and stroke patients. Therapy is hard work and all of our therapists have a unique understanding of what each patient has gone through just to get to this point. It is our desire to maximize each session so that all the hard work and effort pays off.
According to the National Parkinson's Foundation, Parkinson's Disease (PD) is the 2nd most common neurological disease. PD is characterized by tremor, stiffness of the limbs and trunk, slowness of movement and postural abnormalities. Within the general population, 2 in every 1000 people are diagnosed with PD. For the 65+ population, these numbers increase to 2 in every 100.
What can Balance and Neurological Therapy do for the Parkinson's Patient?
We specialize in the treatment of patients with neurological disorders on an individual basis with a one-on-one custom program to meet the individual needs of each patient. Our one-hour sessions are focused on gait, balance, strength, coordination as well as fall prevention in order to maximize patient potential. Advancements in recent technology, such as the deep brain stimulator (DBS), has allowed Physical Therapy to enhance a patient's functional status. For those patients with or without the DBS, Physical Therapy is a good approach in regaining a patient's prior level of function.
