Neuromuscular Rehabilitation

As the field of rehabilitation has expanded so has a recognition that individuals with disability from a variety of conditions would benefit from comprehensive rehabilitation.  These individuals are managed through the Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Program through a partnership between UT Health and TIRR Memorial Hermann. Neurorehabilitation is a necessary component of healthcare for persons with neurodegenerative diseases. We provide collaborative, integrated care, clinical expertise, a continuum of care for all levels of abilities and evidence-based, cutting edge interventions in our Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Program.

TIRR Memorial Hermann sets the standard of excellence in the rehabilitation of persons with neurodegenerative diseases such as: multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy, post-polio syndrome, arthritis, burn rehabilitation, west nile virus, multiple system atrophy and olivopontine cerebellar atrophy, polymyositis/dermatomyositis and other neuropathies and myopathies.

We apply our rehabilitation skills and knowledge in the comprehensive assessment and management of patients at every stage of their illness, including acute and chronic neurodegenerative diseases.

Some of the disorders managed included but are not limited to:

  • Cancer
  • Rehabilitation and Survivorship
  • Burn Injuries
  • Multiple Trauma
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome and Peripheral Nerve Disorders
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and other Neurodegenerative Disorders
  • Parkinson’s Disease and other Movement Disorders

Our physicians have specialization in each of these conditions and create a rehabilitation that is tailored to the individuals needs.  This is vital as many of these disorders have complications that are unique to them and required different approaches to rehabilitation.
