Touro Neuro Rehabilitation Center in New Orleans
Treating patients with neurological injury & illness
The Neuro Rehabilitation Center at Touro specializes in the treatment of patients with brain injury, strokes, spinal cord injuries, or other neurological injury or illness using a community integrative approach. The Neuro Rehabilitation Center team focuses on returning the patient to the highest level of function possible while emphasizing strengths and accommodating unique needs. We offer a wide range of services, programs, and care.
The certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist works on community reintegration by teaching patients how to use community resources and allowing them to practice navigating common leisure sites (i.e. restaurants, movie theaters, etc.). The therapist utilizes a wide range of techniques, strategies, and activities to create a smooth transition back into the community following a serious injury or condition.
Our neuropsychologists can provide neuropsychological evaluations, neurological cognitive therapy, or psychotherapy. These services can be valuable for neurological rehabilitation patients in facilitating awareness, assisting in adjustment to the changes caused by disability, and easing integration into the community.
