The consequences of a disease are not only the symptoms of the disease, but also the resulting impairment of skills that hinder the patient's participation in everyday and professional life tasks. The diagnosis of such secondary effects and their therapy with the aim of the best possible restoration of the performance of the lost abilities is the central task of neurological rehabilitation in Reha Leibnitz. Neurological diseases can lead to very different impairments. Among other things, disorders of mobility, feeling, speaking and sight occur in isolation or in combination. In many cases, there are also deficits in concentration, spatial and memory abilities.
Rehabilitation therefore requires detailed introductory diagnostics in order to record all impairments. Due to the very different characteristics in individual patients, certain objectives and often the commitment of several specialized therapists are required in order to achieve a good rehabilitation result. Ideally, this would lead to the complete restoration of health, but in the case of neurological diseases it can also be understood as an optimized way of dealing with permanent deficits in order to achieve improved social participation and possible professional reintegration.
Neurological rehabilitation is offered in both inpatient (phase II) and outpatient (phase III) form. Outpatient neurological rehabilitation has the advantage that you can stay in the familiar environment and the therapy can be integrated into everyday life - this of course also makes it more job-oriented. The proximity to the place of residence also facilitates the therapeutic involvement of relatives, the establishment of social networks and the planning of further treatments in the region. The outpatient neurological rehabilitation takes place over a maximum of 6 months on at least 2 days of the week.
