There’s no doubt that neurological diseases and events can be devastating. A stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other event can cause chronic headaches, lasting pain, difficulty walking, and problems controlling your limbs.

The Expert PhysioActive Approach
There is hope! The expert staff members at PhysioActive are dedicated to improving our patients’ mobility and overall quality of life no matter their type of neurological issue. Just a few of the challenges we have worked with include:

  • Cerebral palsy (CP)
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Spinal cord injury (any level)
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Our patients are our primary focus, so we always offer custom treatment plans that use a variety of therapy modalities to meet their unique needs. These therapies focus on restoring strength, balance, walking gait if appropriate, and patient independence with daily activities.

In our efforts to provide comprehensive neurological rehabilitation, we offer one-on-one therapy with a professional neurological physiotherapist as well as assessments of home conditions and any necessary equipment.

Of course, we are always happy to work with family members, caregivers, and other healthcare providers to ensure that our neurological rehabilitation patients have the support and care they need.

CVA / Stroke

A stroke occurs if an area of brain tissue is deprived of its blood supply causing brain cells to lose their supply of oxygen. This is usually caused by a blockage or burst blood vessel. Without oxygen, brain cells can become irreversibly damaged within minutes.

Multiple Sclerosis

In MS the conductive outer coating of many of the nerve fibres is damaged. The body can repair the damage to some extent but often small scars are left and the nerves do not function quite as they did before.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition affecting activities such as walking, talking, and writing. It is named after Dr. James Parkinson, the London doctor who first identified Parkinson’s as a specific condition.

Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury is a disturbance of the spinal cord that results in loss of sensation and/or mobility. This disturbance, or area of damage, is commonly referred to as a lesion.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused initially by a blow to the head. TBI also includes potential complications seen after the initial injury caused by lack of oxygen to the brain tissues or increased pressure within the skull.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the brain before, during or after birth. Often the exact cause of cerebral palsy is not known, but contributing factors can include infections, lack of oxygen, meningitis and pressure or blows to the head.
