Neurorehabilitation is a complex medical process which aims to aid recovery from a nervous system injury and to minimise and compensate for any functional alterations resulting from it.
Over the last decades scientific evidence has challenged the traditional notion that the brain cannot change once development is completed. In fact, the adult brain retains the ability to modify anatomical and functional connections as a result of learning or following injuries. Effective neurorehabilitation amplifies this potential by offering intensive therapy adapted to the specific ability of the patient.
Neurologists, neuropsychologists, specialists in rehabilitative care, speech therapists, movement therapists and nutritionists coordinate with one another in order to continually improve the patient’s quality of life. Remediation treatments help restore lost skills through repetitive, specialist exercises; compensatory treatments help utilise intact skills to make up for deficits in other areas.
At cereneo this optimal interdisciplinary approach adapts to the individual goals and wishes of the patient, continually assesses her progress and provides motivating feedback. It also focuses on nutrition, psychological, social and creative parts of a person’s recovery.
Neurorehabilitation is a creative process that includes the latest scientific findings and often defies conventions.
