Our spasticity clinic uses the latest technology and techniques to evaluate and treat issues related to abnormal muscle tone from brain or spinal cord disorders.

Muscle re-education and strengthening
Neuromuscular re-education is a technique designed to repair the connection between one’s nerves and muscles to restore normal movement. Our therapists will provide a customized regiment consisting of repetitive movements, posturing, and stimulation designed to reinforce nerve signals for functional movements.

Functional electrical stimulation
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a technique that uses subtle electrical currents to activate nerves effecting upper and lower limbs affected by paralysis resulting from spinal cord or head injury, stroke, or other neurological disorder.

Coordination exercises
Utilizing the latest technologies and techniques, our therapists will implement a customized regiment of exercises designed to re-train lost coordination skills due to a neurological injury or condition.

Gait evaluation and training
Our therapists will perform a thorough evaluation of a patient’s gait and prescribe a customized balance strengthening training program to improve stability and body perception to help the patient re-learn how to walk safely and efficiently.

Balance training
Weak core muscles contribute to all kinds of problems in the body. Pad’s balance training equipment can help patients strengthen core muscles and help with rehabilitation therapy. State of the art equipment goes from balance pads, balance beams, balance discs and boards to anodyne therapy and the Balance Master.

Wheelchair management
Our experts will educate the patient and his or her family on properly transporting, using, and dealing with the difficulties of using a wheelchair

Modified-Constraint Induced TherapyNeurology-2
A treatment based on the concept of improving the use of the weaker extremity by restricting use of the stronger extremity, modified-constraint induced therapy is research proven to improve arm and hand function in patients with neurological injuries. Studies have shown improvements in reaching and grasping with overall improvements in upper extremity functional performance.

Cognitive therapy
Cognitive rehabilitation is designed to maximize a patient’s physical abilities, functional skills, cognitive strengths and behavioral self-management.
