Questions About Rehabilitation
What might my rehabilitation program involve?
Depending on our assessment findings, you may receive input from one or more of our professionals.
How much improvement should I expect after a neurological event?
With the growing body of research on neuro-plasticity, we have become increasingly aware of improvement that can potentially take place even years after a neurological event such as a stroke. “The Brain that heals itself” by Norman Diodge is a good book that will inspire you.
It is important to note that for patients with a deteriorating or progressive neurological condition such as Parkinsons, Multiply sclerosis, etc. An aspect of their rehabilitation is about preserving ability, minimizing deterioration? and formulating appropriate adaptation to compensate for changes in ability.
For more information, please feel free to call My Rehab Team or relevant organisations such as the MS Society, Stroke Association Queensland, Parkinson’s Australia, etc.

I've just been given a neurological diagnosis. Who can I talk to?
Your GP should be your first port of call. For many neurological conditions, there are also large charity organisations which provide a wide range of resources and support services. The MS Society, Stroke Association Queensland, Parkinson’s Australia, to name a few.

Who is suitable for rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation can benefit anyone whether you were diagnosed recently or have had your symptoms a long time ago. The main consideration is having a clear goal in mind. Our team members can help you decide how your goal can be achieved or how it should be broken down so that it becomes smaller and achievable targets.
