Injuries and illnesses impacting the neurological system can be challenging—and frightening—to overcome. Bon Secours Physical Therapy will work with your entire care team to create a plan tailored to your individual needs during recovery from illness or injury. Our therapists work with patients living with neurologic disorders to restore them to their highest possible level of cognitive and physical function.
Balance and Fall Prevention
The incidence of falls increases with age. The Balance and Fall Prevention program at Bon Secours Physical Therapy teaches seniors how to prevent a fall, identify risk factors in the home, and the importance of daily physical activity in improving strength, balance, and the quality of life.
It is estimated that 1.1 million people are treated for concussions and other traumatic brain injuries in the emergency department each year. Most of these injuries occur during sports or recreational activities. At Bon Secours Physical Therapy, our specially trained physical therapists and athletic trainers will help get you back in the game safely.
LSVT® BIG Program for Parkinson’s
At Bon Secours Physical Therapy, our clinic at Memorial Regional Medical Center is introducing a new non-invasive treatment program for Parkinson’s patients struggling with the activities of daily living. We retrain movements to make them bigger so that daily tasks, like walking, are easier. The goal of the program is to help these patients perform their activities of daily living with greater ease.
Our physical therapists have developed the Vestibular Rehabilitation Program to help improve the symptoms of dizziness while increasing mobility and balance. This rehabilitation helps to retrain the body when stroke, brain trauma, inner ear surgery or chronic disease like MS or Parkinson’s affects the vestibular system. Patients with vertigo, motion intolerance and dizziness associated with neck pain may also benefit from this program.
