Neurology Rehabilitation & Support

After a neurological injury or illness, going about your everyday life may present new challenges. Neurology rehabilitation and support at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare offers teams of dedicated experts who help you improve your strength, stamina and independence.

Inpatient & Outpatient Neurology Support

Whether you need inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation, get the help you need to succeed. Our team of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals develop for you a personalized therapy plan that helps you work toward accomplishing your goals.

You'll get comprehensive care that will:

  • Improve your walking, mobility, balance and strength
  • Maximize your ability to perform daily activities, including bathing, dressing and meal preparation
  • Identify and treat speech, swallowing or eating conditions
  • Address memory, problem-solving or cognitive difficulties
  • Manage medications
  • Provide therapy and assessment for daily-routine activities, such as driving
  • Develop skills to get you back into community life through activities such as music, bowling, dog-assisted therapy and interactive gaming

We know restoring your quality of life is important to you and your family. The neurology rehabilitation and therapy to do this comes in many forms, including:

  • Balance, gait and dizziness evaluation and therapy
  • Bowel and bladder retraining
  • Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) therapy
  • Hand, arm and leg injury therapy
  • Pediatric rehabilitation, including torticollis therapy
  • Spinal therapy
  • Stroke rehabilitation
  • Vestibular rehabilitation
  • Voice and speech therapy

You may also get a nerve conduction study in addition to diagnostic testing with your outpatient services. These tests can measure your nerve impulses and determine the presence of nerve damage.

Personalized Neurology Care Plans

You and your family work hand-in-hand with your care team to plan milestones during your rehabilitation. Each accomplishment will bring new goals and help build your confidence and strength, inside and out.

With advanced treatments, such as our computer-assisted technology for balance and walking therapy, and interactive conditioning, such as aquatic—or water-based—exercises, you'll find options that fit your health and rehabilitation goals.
