Hartford HealthCare Rehabilitation Network's Neurological Rehabilitation Program provides a team approach to rehabilitation.


About the Program

A neurological injury or disease can affect all aspects of a person’s life, including the ability to speak and swallow, walk, or be independent in their daily care. Evidence shows the type of rehab one receives can impact the ability to return to these tasks. Our clinical team uses evidence based interventions coupled with rehab technologies and years of clinical expertise to maximize a patient’s neurological recovery, help them achieve their goals and be as prepared for the future as possible.

As a leader in rehabilitative care, the Hartford Healthcare Rehabilitation Network provides skilled physical, occupational and speech/language therapy services to people with neurological disorders, including but not limited to:

  • Stroke
  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Balance disorders
  • Vestibular disorders

At Hartford healthcare we pride ourselves on being able to offer the full continuum of rehabilitation services to our patients with neurological injuries and disorders. From our intensive inpatient rehabilitation unit, to your community outpatient clinic, a team of expert therapist and clinicians will be by your side as you transition down your road to recovery and work with you to obtain the highest level of functional independence possible.

Each person has different rehabilitation needs, which is why we offer individualized, patient centered care in the following settings:


Therapy Services

Parkinson's Disease

Patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) present with varying symptoms, ranging from mild tremor, to those who have severe gait and safety problems, dyskinesia, dysphagia and cognitive issues.

Stroke Therapy

Our multidisciplinary team incorporates a combination of physical, occupational, and speech therapy to maximize your functional independence and recovery after stroke. Evidence shows the brain has the ability to “re-wire” after a neurological injury and that the intensity of rehabilitation services received have a positive effect on patient outcomes.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Balance related falls account for more than half the accidental falls in the elderly, while 85% of dizziness and equilibrium problems are the result of pathology within the inner ear. Approximately 5-10% of people over the age of 65 will experience BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo).

The Iowa Oral Performance Instrument (IOPI)

The IOPI objectively measures strength and endurance of the tongue and lips. These measures aid therapists in the treatment of disorders affecting swallowing, speech, and eating by:

  • objectively documenting deficits that justify treatment
  • diagnostically differentiating between muscle weakness and problems of motor control
  • providing biofeedback during isometric oral motor exercise programs
  • motivating patients by showing them their progress from muscle exercise therapy

SynchronySynchrony

The Synchrony provides visual and auditory feedback to facilitate swallow behavioral change and improve swallow coordination and encourage greater exercise intensity and duration through “immersive” virtual reality augmented activities. It provides progressive resistance exercises and real-time assessment of treatment effectiveness. Additionally, it captures objective measurement data for swallowing duration and muscle activity for treatment guidance and documentation.

MOTOmed® Viva

The MOTOmed trainer allows passive, motor assisted, or active resistive training for the patients arms or legs. The MOTOmed allows the patient to use the strength that they have, while supplementing for their strength deficits.
