Types of Treatment
Mountain River works with individuals suffering from a neurological disorder or disease, including Alzheimer’s, ALS, brain injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury and stroke.
Depending upon the disorder and deficits identified, treatments may consist of balance training, endurance/strength training, practicing isolated movements, repeatedly changing from one kind of movement to another, and rehearsing complex movements that require a great deal of coordination and balance, such as walking up or down stairs or moving safely between obstacles.
Common problems of patients with neurological disorders include:
- Vision impairment
- Poor balance
- Difficulty walking and loss of independence
