How Physical Therapy Can Improve the Symptoms of Neurological Conditions

Neurological conditions in Wichita, KS, can cause debilitating symptoms that make daily life challenging. If you have undergone surgery, take daily medications, and still feel that your neurological condition has too much control over your life, consider the benefits of physical therapy at one of our four locations in Wichita or one location in Hutchinson.

Examples of Common Neurological Conditions

We work with patients with various brain disorders here at Physical Therapy by Phoenix. The most common conditions we treat include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

As you can see by the inclusion of cerebral palsy, people of all ages can struggle with a neurological condition.

Physical Therapy Can Help You Lead a More Comfortable and Independent Life

The skilled physical therapists at Phoenix customize each patient’s treatment plan to improve their weaknesses and build upon their strengths. For example, several of these neurological conditions cause issues with balance and coordination. We prescribe certain exercises that improve the signal between the brain and muscles to help make the latter stronger.

Your physical therapist first teaches you exercises at our clinic and then supervises you the first several times you attempt them. Completing exercises at home is a critical part of your physical therapy program, and we expect all patients to report to their next session having done the exercises we prescribed at home.

Working with Neurology Patients Requires Extra Training

Physical therapists who work with people with a neurological condition have completed a certification program beyond their degree. This requires 2,000 hours of supervised practice with people who have these conditions to obtain the specialty certification.

Your neurological conditions in Wichita, KS, have taken enough from you already. Let us help you regain some independence by scheduling your initial consultation today.
