Neurological Rehabilitation as delivered by My Rehab Team is treatment aimed at harnessing neuroplasticity to achieve the full potential of a damaged nervous system in order to re-learn functional activities.
Some neurological conditions that may benefit from this type of rehabilitation are: Stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Acquired Brain Injury, complex disabilities, and more.
Mobile Neurological Physiotherapy
Neurological physiotherapy is aimed towards retraining functional activities to improve mobility and physical independence. In other cases, physiotherapists will aim to slow the progression of physical symptoms caused by disability and disease.
Commonly managed symptoms include spasticity, weakness, joint contractures, movement disorders, incoordination, dizziness, compensation and physical neglect.
In addition to neurological rehabilitation, My Rehab Team physiotherapists offer mobility aid prescription, hydrotherapy sessions, falls prevention training, lymphodema management, pain management, dry-needling, Pilates training and rehabilitation following musculoskeletal injury.
Mobile Occupational Therapy
Neurological Occupational therapists facilitate the retraining of individuals in need of cognitive, vocational, functional or sensory upper limb rehabilitation. They can offer recommendations for assistive technology and home alterations to improve safety and maximise independence.
They can perform comprehensive assessments that will outline your needs and provide their recommendations of treatment to reach your full capacity.
Occupational therapy services also cover areas including fatigue management, scar and contracture management, community access retraining, wheelchair prescription, MASS and CAEATI applications, and more.
One of the key missions of our dietitian is to help our clients decipher through a plethora of confusing dietary advice and information that floods the market these days.
Our clients are provided with a tailored nutritional program in tune with their health condition to benefit their rehabilitation goals and dietary objectives.
Seeing our clients in their own homes not only has the advantage of ensuring privacy, it optimises our effectiveness by enabling our dietitian to synchronise our advice with clients’ dietary values and habits at home.
Our podiatrist prescribes orthotics, makes footwear recommendations, and addresses biomechanical issues at the foot and ankle in full consideration of an individual’s neurological symptoms and presentation.
The podiatrist is also able to assist with maintaining healthy foot care. Conditions commonly presented to us include overgrown toenails, fungal infections, ingrown toenails, corn and callouses, etc.
Additionally, podiatry often deals with painful symptoms experienced in the feet caused by rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, flat foot, elevated arch, and heel spurs, and other problems.
If you are suffering from foot problems, then your mobility is most likely going to be adversely affected. Therefore, mobile podiatry is a popular service at My Rehab Team.
Mobile Speech Pathology
Speech pathologists aim to manage and retrain swallowing difficulties, facial weakness and cognitive communication problems. Additionally, they can recommend assistive technologies such as communication aids, smart phone and tablet apps to enhance your communication ability.
Exercise physiology for neurological conditions: There is increasing body of evidence supporting exercises in the management of neurological conditions. In some conditions, exercise has been demonstrated to be able to modify the disease process.
Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia and Alzheimer’s are some examples. Exercise is also effective to improve strength, fitness, and functional capacity of those with multiple sclerosis and stroke. Because of this, our exercise physiologists are integral and essential to the neurological services we deliver.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue is a large category of body structures, which include muscles, tendon, ligaments, arteries, veins, lymph nodes, nerves, joints, and interstitial (between cells) fluid. Bearing similarity to massage therapy, soft tissue therapy encompasses clinical techniques targeted at the above-mentioned structures.
Rehabilitation is achieved by reducing tension and stiffness, mobilising unwanted fluid retention, promoting circulation, and stimulating sensory receptors, ultimately giving the body a head start to get active and moving again.
At My Rehab Team, soft tissue management for NDIS participants must be prescribed by a physiotherapist, and our therapy assistants execute the soft tissue therapy sessions.
