What is MPT Neurology?
M.P.T (Neurology) or Master of Physiotherapy in Neurology is a 2-year postgraduate course. Neurological disorders affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Some examples of neurological disorders are Stroke, Ataxia, Facial Palsy and Parkinson's disease. Neurologically injured patients require special care during rehabilitation. MPT Neurology provides a unique opportunity for physiotherapists to develop and extend their knowledge, and become professional experts in Advance Neurological Rehabilitation.
What are the Benefits of MPT Neurology?
1. PRACTICAL AND THEORETICAL FOUNDATION FOR POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS
Neurology-rehabilitation is a multi-disciplinary solution in which the therapist practices using Advanced Neuro-rehabilitation Techniques and Technology.
a. Advance Neuro-rehabilitation Techniques such as Bobath /Neuro-developmental technique, Rood's Approach, PNF and Motor Relearning Program, and more are taught.
b. Advance Neuro rehabilitation Technology such as Robotics, Neuro aquatic therapy, Transcranial direct current stimulation, Virtual reality, BWSTT & Functional Electrical Stimulation are used.
2. FOCUS ON IMPROVING OVERALL QUALITY OF LIFE
Neurological conditions are extremely complex. They don’t simply limit the function of the human body, they also affect a person’s ability to communicate, inhibit free and independent movement, prevent access to specific locations, contribute to feelings of isolation and introduce the pressure of social stigma. A patient’s life will only see improvement if treatment addresses the full gamut of challenges they face: physical, mental and emotional. Neuro-rehabilitation takes all of these unique challenges into account.
3. INDIVIDUALISED, PATIENT-CENTERED CARE
Any improvement in physical symptoms will ideally allow patients to achieve their personal goals and move through their day-to-day lives with increased ease. Each neurological condition is also highly personal on a physiological level, affecting different parts of each patient’s body to varying degrees. There is no one-size-fits-all rehab for a neurological condition. Thus, it follows that neuro-rehabilitation treatments are appropriately adjusted according to the individual.
4. INTER-DISCIPLINARY LEARNING
In order to provide comprehensive solutions to the challenges a patient may face, neuro- rehabilitation is necessarily an intersection between many medicinal disciplines and typically takes place in an acute rehabilitation hospital. Here is just a small sampling of the programs a patient may require:
- Exercises to improve mobility, balance and gait
- Pain management
- Training to improve memory and cognition
- Speech therapy
- Mental health counselling and emotional support
- Nutritional and vocational counselling
While this may seem overwhelming, these types of multi-focused plans benefit the patient. The patients will work toward improvements in various areas of their lives with the help of the most qualified, specialized medical professionals.
5. IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF PATIENTS’ LIVES
Neurorehabilitation improves the quality of life of patients by helping them obtain the skills to stay independent rather than relying on family, friends and community for assistance. Additionally, patients spend less time on costly medical services, equipment and hospital stays. It also reduces the stress on the healthcare system to work with patients throughout their journey, rather than responding to immediate crises.
6. BETTER HEALTH OUTCOMES
Research has shown that early intervention can slow the degeneration process and allow patients to live more independent and productive lives. While not every patient will be able to recover completely, or even at all, neurorehabilitation increases their chances to reverse the reversible, and retain any functions they still possess for a longer period of time.
