Inpatient Neurosurgical Rehab

Interdisciplinary approach among many therapies makes inpatient neurosurgical rehab - 'a marathon'

Rehabilitation for patients with neurological deficits may feel they've signed up for the Boston Marathon. It's a run for recovery: Challenging physical conditioning. Difficult dexterity and balance programs. Repetitive speech and language practice. Recreational activities to stimulate the brain and the body.

Typically, patients are recovering from strokes, traumatic brain injury, surgery to remove brain or lumbar tumors, or other debilitating neurological diseases.

Depending on severity, patients have a limited inpatient time frame to re-build life skills, and are urged to make the most of every minute. Patients must be able to spend three hours in therapy every day for the 2-3 week inpatient stay. Each patient has his/her room, and a schedule that starts early.

All patients are initially evaluated. A team conference of all nursing and therapy disciplines distills a comprehensive treatment regimen, designed to achieve the patient's and family's goals for rehabilitation. Nurses and therapists know each patient's goals, and take every opportunity to reinforce skills the patient's need to overcome limitations.

Inpatient Rehab has a fully equipped apartment that some patients, nearing discharge, use to practice skills they've been learning.
