Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation

Our Approach to Care

If you’re coping with neurological impairment – whether as a result of disease, medical treatment, or injury – our Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation program is designed to optimize your functional ability. Using an interdisciplinary team approach, we work with you and your family to develop a personalized plan for rehabilitation. Your plan will include realistic goals to help you regain function and return to daily life.

We now have the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill for use in our Outpatient Neurological Rehab Program. The AlterG uses NASA-developed Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology that gently adjusts body weight from 100% down to as low as 20%. This unique unweighting with air pressure comfortably lifts the user and allows him/her to walk at a fraction of their body weight helping to restore balance and mobility.

Neurological patients who have a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation or who have Parkinson's or MS other conditions may benefit from this technology. From teens to seniors, our staff will discuss the benefits of AlterG and whether this technology can be a part of your recovery.

Program Highlights

Our Neurological Rehabilitation program treats patients with a variety of different disorders. Typically, our patients have generalized poor endurance and strength, because of a neurological disorder or extensive surgical procedures, cancer, infection, or other organ problems.
The disorders we treat include:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
  • "Chemo Brain" or Cancer Treatment Related Cognitive Impairment
  • Guillain Barre´ Syndrome
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Post-Polio Syndrome
  • Vestibular Disorders

An internist (or a physiatrist, a physician who specializes in rehabilitation medicine, will help determine how best to manage medications in combination with rehabilitation techniques.

Gaylord’s Multiple Sclerosis Assessment Service is the only program of its kind in Connecticut that is directed by a physiatrist. The program focuses on evaluation and treatment, medication management and home care training. The program offers patients the most current approaches in spasticity management, such as:

  • Adaptive Technology
  • Baclofen Pump and Electrical Stimulation
  • Nerve Blocks
  • Swallowing Evaluations
  • Use of Botox
  • Vestibular Rehab Therapy
  • Wheelchair Assessment


Patients may benefit from Aquatic Therapy in Gaylord’s therapeutic pool. Aquatic Therapy uses water-based treatment techniques to help patients:

  • Build Self-Confidence
  • Improve Functional Ability
  • Increase Range of Motion
  • Relieve Pain and Muscle Spasms


LSVT® LOUD is an effective speech treatment for people with Parkinson's disease (PD) and other neurological conditions. LSVT® BIG is an exercise treatment program for people with Parkinson's disease and other conditions. Both programs are led by certified therapists and the program is based on the principle that the brain can learn and change (neuroplasticity).

This clinic evaluates and recommends devices and therapies designed to:

  • Maximize Functional Mobility
  • Provide Stability
  • Prevent Deformity


Conducted by registered physical therapists who are certified Assistive Technology Providers (ATPs), the Wheelchair Assessment Service starts with a comprehensive physical assessment. Then, advanced simulation technology is used to determine which type of assistive technology will meet the patient’s specific mobility goals and needs.
