Following neurological conditions, many patients require assistive and adaptive devices such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, prosthetic devices, orthotic devices etc. to maximise functional capabilities.

Pediatric neurological rehabilitation is a specialized approach to therapy that focuses on helping children and adolescents recover or improve their physical, cognitive, and functional abilities following neurological conditions or injuries that affect the nervous system, such as brain injuries, strokes, cerebral palsy, and genetic disorders.
Children and adolescents with a wide range of neurological conditions can benefit from rehabilitation, including those with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular disorders, genetic conditions, and developmental delays.
The primary goal is to enhance the child’s overall quality of life by maximizing their functional abilities and independence. This may involve improving motor skills, cognitive abilities, communication, mobility, and daily living activities.
A comprehensive program may include a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, neuropsychology, and other specialized interventions tailored to the child’s specific needs. The program is designed to address physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges.
The duration of rehabilitation varies based on the child’s condition, the severity of the neurological impairment, and individual progress. Some children may require a relatively short course of treatment, while others may need ongoing therapy over an extended period.
The rehabilitation team typically consists of various healthcare professionals, including pediatric neurologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists, social workers, and nurses. Collaboration between team members ensures a comprehensive and holistic approach to care.
