Neurorehabilitation at Sheba Medical Center

Neurorehabilitation at Sheba Medical Center

Neurorehabilitation, or neurological rehabilitation, helps patients who have suffered diseases, injuries, or disorders affecting the nervous system regain physical independence and improve their overall wellbeing. To support all facets of your recovery, it is crucial to choose a treatment facility that offers a wide range of therapeutic approaches.


When is Neurorehabilitation Needed?

Neurorehabilitation benefits both patients who have suffered neurological damage in the past as well as those with ongoing conditions. Specific conditions include:

  • Brain or spinal cord injuries
  • Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Huntington’s chorea, and other neurodegenerative diseases
  • Infections like meningitis, polio, brain abscesses, and encephalitis
  • Vascular disorders, including ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), and subdural hematoma
  • Neuromuscular conditions such as Bell’s palsy, peripheral neuropathy, muscular dystrophy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and myasthenia gravis

The Neurorehabilitation Process

While the needs of each patient vary according to their precise diagnosis and condition, the ultimate goal of neurological rehabilitation is for patients to reach their maximum level of function through different therapies. The doctor supervising your rehabilitation will put together a program that promotes your physical, emotional, and social wellbeing. Aspects of your care may include:

  • Neurological physical therapy
  • Participation in support groups
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Pain management
  • Emotional support and counseling
  • Vocational counseling
  • Speech therapy

If your neurorehabilitation program is on an outpatient basis, or if you are a candidate for discharge, social workers will equip you and your family with the tools needed to continue your care once home, ensuring that your surroundings support and encourage your recovery.
