Alden Des Plaines offers an intensive, outcome-driven NeuroRehabilitation program for those who have suffered a stroke or other traumatic brain injury. A customized treatment plan is tailored to each individual’s needs and abilities that teaches patients how to move correctly again. The goal of our NeuroRehabilitation program – NeuroStrokePro™ – is to help individuals regain some to most of the functionality they may have lost.
The Right Team and Equipment
An interdisciplinary team of therapists, nurses, social workers and other health professionals—led by a board-certified physician—provides a full range of neurological recovery and brain injury rehabilitative services based on your health history, medical needs and outcome goals. At Alden Des Plaines, we have the equipment and modalities needed to help our patients achieve their maximum functionality:
- Equipment such as a treadmill, plinth, neurogym machine and gym balls to improve motor performance and minimize impairment
- Ultrasound, E-stim and short-wave diathermy treatments that enhance recovery by helping manipulate muscle tone and alleviate pain and stiffness
- Medication management, cognitive retraining and psychological consultations to provide motivation and address anxiety, depression and other side effects of stroke
- Case management and community re-entry services to ensure a smooth transition to home
NeuroGym™ Achieves Better Results
The innovative NeuroGym helps therapists and neurological and orthopedic patients achieve better results. The NeuroGym is utilized when patients cannot use traditional equipment due to a loss of functioning and motor skills, from the basics such as standing and static balancing to walking and gross and fine motor control.
NeuroStrokePro allows our patients receive comprehensive coordinated care, education and the tools needed to restore the skills necessary to return home.
