Neurorehabilitation for other neurologic disorders.

Abstract

Rehabilitation treatment and the interdisciplinary approach to care may improve the function of those with progressive neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson disease, ALS, muscular dystrophy, and neuropathy. Appropriate goals and therapies are specific to the stage of the disease as well as the needs and values of the individual patient. Preliminary evidence exists to support moderate aerobic and strengthening regimens in these patients. Close monitoring and avoidance of fatigue are paramount. Assistive technologies play an ever-increasing role in maintaining independence during all stages of the disease.
