The main goal of neuro rehab is to support the patient return to the highest level of function and independence as much as possible, while also increasing their overall quality of life- physical, emotional, and social.

Patients with mild TBI may take about a week to three months to completely recover and lessen the symptoms. For a person older than 40 years, it may take a bit longer.

Neurological rehabilitation (rehab) is a doctor-overseen program designed for people with neurological diseases, injuries, or disorders of the nervous system. Rehabilitation mainly aims to improve function, lessen debilitating symptoms, and optimize a patient’s well-being and quality of life. Generally, the types of rehabilitation treatments are suggested depending on the regions of the body affected by the neurological condition.

Rehab will work effectively, and recovery tends to be faster within the first 18 months to 2 years following injury or any illness. Nevertheless, even after this period, people can still make life-modifying improvements with rehab as the brain and body are still able to change. During your appointment, your therapist will discuss your individual needs and be able to suggest possible developments and outcomes.
