Neurological rehabilitation

At Encompass Health Valley of The Sun Rehabilitation Hospital, rehabilitation is what we do, and that experience makes a difference. Through customized treatment plans addressing each patient’s specific needs and goals, we aim to change our patients’ lives for the better—physically, emotionally and socially.

When it comes to neurological rehabilitation for brain injuries or other neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), Guillain-Barre syndrome, balance and muscle disorders and Lou Gehrig’s disease, our experts know success lies in compassionate, specialized treatment plans designed to help you achieve your goals.

What is neurological rehabilitation?

At our hospital, we believe that an interdisciplinary team approach that includes you and your loved ones leads to superior outcomes. Our team includes rehabilitation specialists including physicians, nurses, therapists, case managers and pharmacists.

Parkinson's rehabilitation

Patients in all stages of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders can benefit from our specialized neurorehabilitation treatment. Our experienced neurorehabilitation team uses innovative technologies and proven therapy techniques to create individualized programs for superior outcomes.

Our Parkinson's disease program benefits patients in many ways. The program:

  • Improves strength, dexterity, flexibility, balance, voice and swallowing through one-on-one therapy sessions with a physical, occupational and speech therapist
  • Optimizes medication with both pharmacy and nursing educating patients and their caregivers on the proper dosing and timing of each medication
  • Develops customized programs to meet each patient’s specific needs
  • Provides tips and education to lessen symptoms and improve function and safety
  • Includes the latest therapy treatment options and technologies
  • Offers hope and encouragement

Brain injury rehabilitation

Approximately 2.5 million people experience traumatic brain injuries each year in the U.S., according to the Brain Trauma Foundation. Brain injury may result from an injury or an illness. To help restore the brain’s functioning following one of these events, we coordinate individualized treatment programs, state-of-the-art technology and dedicated rehabilitation teams working together with patients one-on-one for a comprehensive approach to care.

Throughout rehabilitation, our teams work to:

  • Provide follow up and referral to community resources to better prepare patients and their caregivers for a safe return home or the next setting of care
  • Educate patients and families on brain injury and the rehabilitation process
  • Offer emotional support for patients and caregivers
  • Design a care plan based on individual needs and goals
  • Restore physical, cognitive and behavioral function
  • Train and adapt for long-term limitations, if needed

Multiple sclerosis rehabilitation

While there is currently no cure for MS, there are many ways individuals can manage symptoms, improving the quality of their lives. Our program can greatly benefit patients, inspiring confidence in the achievement of unparalleled outcomes. Our multiple sclerosis rehabilitation program:

  • Accurately pinpoints needs with a thorough team evaluation upon admission
  • Develops a treatment plan that addresses coordination and balance
  • Improves muscle strength and flexibility
  • Improves energy conservation
  • Modifies the disease course by managing symptoms and improving function and safety
  • Gives hope and encouragement to patients and their families
