The clip “Neuro Rehabilitation Services — Residential” displays that neurological rehabilitation helps people with brain injuries. The medical field has several subdivisions, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and physical therapy. Neurological rehabilitation therapists work with patients to regain their quality of life.
The therapists achieve this through the process of making people more independent with everyday tasks, such as bathing and dressing. Before social skills therapy can begin, one undergoes a thorough evaluation. The first step is to assess how much functional loss has occurred. The assessment also determines how long it will take for a patient to regain function.
The next step is to identify the person’s strengths and weaknesses. Neuro rehab therapists will develop a plan based on what is achievable within a specific timeframe. They outline the rehab plan in a written report called a rehabilitation contract. For the program to be successful, timing is critical. The time needed for each step depends on the type of injury.
It is also dependent on whether or not it results in permanent functional loss. The more permanent the operating loss, the longer it will take to recover. For example, people with brain injury who suffer from aphasia, a language disorder, may take up to two years to regain their speech skills.
