EA Neurologic Recovery Program

Your journey to reach your independence goals continues here

Your story of recovery is not over

Yet, so often, following life changing neurologic condition diagnosis or injury, people are told therapy interventions are no longer covered by their insurance far too soon.   This usually comes as a shock, occurring before desirable independence goals are achieved.  At EA’s Neurologic Recovery Program, we believe that lifelong access to a specialized physical rehabilitation team plays a key role in improving the health, happiness, and independence of people of all ages who are challenged by paralysis or physical impairments from neurologic injury or diagnosis.

Why chose a specialized therapeutic health program in your community?

Because all people should have access to the highest level of care and accessible facilities recommended to meet optimal independence given their unique physical challenges to maintain basic physical activity recommendations right in their community.  General community based wellness programs and personal trainers do not have adequate knowledge or tools to serve this role for people living with physical challenges related to neurologic conditions.  So often, continuing your rehab and wellness at home or in a local general gym is difficult, burdensome for loved ones, does not provide adaptive equipment or knowledgeable assistance to optimize your workouts, and usually limits success.

Experts in guiding you to your health and rehab goals

Your team will include physical and occupational therapy combined with intensive activity based training led by specialized personal trainers who are inclusive fitness trainers AND health coaches. Trained at the Neurorecovery Learning Network, top researchers in intensive activity-based training and neurorehabilitation, our staff have the best available skills and advanced tools to lead you to optimal success.  Our approach is effective, safe, and proven through vast research studies.  We are confident that you will see an improvement in your quality of life and achieve goals that you never thought were possible.

Our adult occupational therapists can help you regain life skills such as returning to work duties, improving memory strategies for health management tasks, implement coping tools for stress management, or improve independence with household tasks. We utilize treatment techniques to give you modifications and adaptation tools, as well as ways to improve your abilities. The goal is to help you manage stress, promote independence, regain movement, decrease pain, and achieve overall wellness.
