Neurological Rehabilitation

MaineHealth provides therapy and rehabilitation medicine services close to home for patients with neurological disorders, including stroke and brain injuries. There are different types of therapy based on patient need, including physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT) and speech therapy (ST). 

Care may be hospital-based or in an outpatient setting. We provide skilled rehabilitation services for adults and children.

What is neurological rehabilitation?

Neurological rehabilitation also is called neuro rehabilitation. It is a doctor-ordered program for people who have disorders, diseases, and injuries of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system.

Neuro rehab often helps symptoms and improves function. Talk to your primary care doctor, family healthcare provider or specialist about getting a referral for neuro rehabilitation and therapy.
