Neurological rehabilitation in Aurora

When a patient is admitted to The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA) for a brain or central nervous system disorder, we begin aggressive neurological rehabilitation—physical, occupational and/or speech therapy— as soon as the patient is capable.

An injury to the brain or central nervous system can seriously affect a person’s ability to perform a variety of tasks. As part of our comprehensive neurological care program, neurorehabilitation helps improve a person’s ability to function independently after being diagnosed with conditions, such as:

  • Brain tumor
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Seizure disorder (epilepsy)
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Infections causing injury to the brain, including: meningitis, encephalitis and transverse myelitis

At TMCA, we’ve developed a comprehensive care program with nearby Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, a licensed acute rehabilitation center that specializes in neurological rehabilitation. This relationship allows patients to transition smoothly from the acute hospital into a rehab facility.

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)

ECT is a proven method to help adults who face challenges achieving mental well-being. It is especially beneficial to patients who do not respond well to medications, who may be pregnant or who are experiencing a rapid regression into crisis.

Modern ECT consists of controlled, electrical currents that affect brain chemistry in a way that can improve mental health. The number of treatments needed to be successful can vary according to the individual.
