At NRC Medical Experts, our members are experts in a broad range of complex neurological disabilities and injuries, and the neurorehabilitation requirements associated with each area.
An amputee is taught with therapy and training on how to cope and resume their functional activities. The process aims at restoring independence to the individual to the highest possible level, allowing them to carry out as many normal activities as possible and improve their quality of life.
A brain injury can be classed in several ways, ranging from mild and temporary to catastrophic and permanent. However, no matter how a traumatic or acquired brain injury is categorised, it is always likely to cause some level of impairment to an individual.
Brachial Plexus Injury
With a brachial plexus injury, sensory and motor function of the arm may be completely or partially impaired and the patient often experiences severe neuropathic, or nerve, pain. Symptoms can range in severity and can vary from being mild numbness in the limb or electric shock-like sensations in the arm.
Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term for a group of non-progressive and permanent neurological conditions. Legal teams and case managers supporting families and children living with cerebral palsy should be aware of the significant impact which affects multiple skills.
Complex neurological disability
Complex neurological disabilities are associated with underlying chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), Parkinson’s diseases and motor neurone disease.
Functional Neurological Disorder
Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), also known as Conversion Disorder, is a condition that affects the functioning of the nervous system, resulting in a variety of symptoms that cannot be fully explained by underlying organic or structural abnormalities.
Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) is a medical condition where an individual experiences symptoms of muscle weakness that are rapid in onset and frequently severe.
Musculoskeletal injuries can result in difficulty in movement and pain so rehabilitation programs are focused on improving the patient’s ability to function, reduction in their symptoms, and raise their overall standards of health.
Spinal cord injury
Recovery and rehabilitation following a spinal cord injury can be a long and difficult process. Solicitors representing clients with spinal cord injury should be guided by the experts throughout this complex series of therapeutic interventions.
Following a stroke, many individuals require support to regain as much independence as possible and improve the quality of their life. The aim of neurorehabilitation following a stroke is for individuals to relearn the skills that were lost due to damage this causes.
