Both chronic and sudden neurological conditions can drastically upset the lives of those who suffer from them. Common effects can include paralysis, loss of motor function, and loss of other nervous control systems. Notably, neurological conditions cover a wide variety of conditions that affect the brain, spine, and nerves.
At Emerald Hills Physio & Sport, our neurorehabilitation therapy in Sherwood Park, AB
helps patients with neurological conditions reclaim control over their lives. We provide a range of physiotherapy methods and treatments which can provide relief from symptoms and improve motor control when carefully applied and combined.
To bring all of our patients the best possible results, every neurorehabilitation case begins with a careful evaluation by our certified physiotherapists. This evaluation will cover a variety of tests for motor function and other criteria to determine the qualities of the patient’s individual condition. It will also entail a review of the patient’s medical history and a thorough discussion about their goals for neurorehabilitation.

At Emerald Hills Physio & Sport, our team of physiotherapists provides neurorehabilitation treatments therapy in Sherwood Park for many different neurological conditions. These include multiple sclerosis, hydrocephalus, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, post-surgery rehabilitation, traumatic nerve injuries, and more.
Our physiotherapists have the knowledge and experience to develop a treatment plan to meet a patient’s individual needs in Sherwood Park. This can include a variety of treatments and methods to deliver the best results.
Hydrocephalus is mainly known as the excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. Although hydrocephalus was once known as “water on the brain,” the “water” is actually cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) — a clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The excessive accumulation of CSF results in an abnormal widening of spaces in the brain called ventricles. This widening creates potentially harmful pressure on the tissues of the brain.
With multiple sclerosis, the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring, as well as a broad spectrum of other signs and symptoms. Disease onset usually occurs in young adults, and it is more common in females. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other, leaving the body’s own immune system attacking and damaging the myelin.
Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that results in a loss of function such as mobility or feeling. Frequent causes of damage are trauma (car accident, gunshot, falls, etc.) or disease (polio, spina bifida, Friedreich’s Ataxia, etc.). The spinal cord does not have to be severed in order for a patient to lose functions, since SCI is very different from back injuries such as ruptured disks, spinal stenosis, or pinched nerves.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI, also called intracranial injury) occurs when an external force leaves traumatic injury on the brain. TBI can be classified based on severity, mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury), or other features (e.g., occurring in a specific location or over a widespread area). Head injury usually refers to TBI but is a broader category because it can involve damage to structures other than the brain, such as the scalp and skull.
Specific treatment procedures include functional training for daily activities, therapeutic exercise, manual techniques such as mobilization and stretching, and therapeutic modalities. Motor control, development, and learning theories focus on the idea that several factors contribute to the emergence of motor behavior.
Physical therapy cannot cure the primary symptoms of MS like weakness, tremors, tingling, numbness, and more, but it empowers you to compensate for the changes brought about by MS. These “compensatory treatments” include learning about new movement techniques, strategies, and equipment.
A physical therapy (PT) program can facilitate the restoration of muscle strength, flexibility, mobility, coordination, and other body functions through consistent, regular exercise. On top of physical therapy, massage, hydrotherapy, and other modalities can also help relieve pain.

As with many of our programs, the first thing we must do to provide the best treatment is an evaluation of your condition and your medical history. This process may vary depending on your condition, but will likely include both motor function and cognitive assessments.
For many conditions, time is a deciding factor. Strokes, spinal injuries, and other sudden events can see the most effective rehabilitation when treatment begins as soon as possible. Leaving issues unattended for years can ultimately diminish the effectiveness of the eventual treatment.
