When is Pediatric Neurological Rehabilitation Needed?

Neurological rehabilitation gives children the resources to cope with awareness and memory, concentration, and impulsivity issues, as well as with physical challenges that impact their daily function. It can help patients who suffer or who have suffered from conditions such as:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • ALS
  • Perinatal brain injury
  • Infections
  • Oncological conditions, such as brain tumors
  • Spinal cord and spinal column malformations
  • Neuromuscular and skeletal disorders

Treatments and Therapies

The first step to pediatric neurological rehabilitation is receiving a diagnosis and undergoing an assessment from the rehabilitation team to determine a treatment plan and establish a schedule. Pediatric neurorehabilitation may take place on an inpatient or outpatient basis, and is a holistic process that focuses on the child’s overall wellbeing. The program may consist of the following treatments:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Emotional counseling
  • Family counseling and support
  • Tutoring
  • Hydrotherapy

A staff of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, social workers, and tutors comprise Sheba’s pediatric neurorehabilitation staff. Depending on whether the program is for an inpatient or outpatient, support can be provided to prepare the child, their caregiver, and their home. This includes special training for families, the provision of medical equipment, and more.

In conjunction with the Pediatric Neurology Institute, which specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders, the Pediatric Rehabilitation Department’s staff of doctors, nurses, and paramedical personnel coordinates and carries out pediatric neurorehabilitation treatments.

Our wealth of experience managing pediatric physical and neurological disabilities has taught us that family support is an essential part of your child’s rehabilitation. Our programs are tailored to meet the individual needs of both your child and your family, and during the time that your child is undergoing neurological rehabilitation, our staff will encourage you to take an active role in the process.
