Premier Provider of Constraint-Induced Therapy in Central Florida

The Neuro Hub is the premier provider of Constraint-Induced Therapy in Central Florida!

Up until a few years ago, most scientists and physician believed the adult brain was unable to be altered and fix itself when damaged. However, one of the leading neuroscientists, Dr. Taub and his research team at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) thought differently. Dr. Taub hypothesized that the brain’s ability to learn and change could be used to repair injuries to the brain - such as stroke (CVA), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and cerebral palsy (CP).

From this research, which has been conducted for over 25 years now, Taub developed Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CI Therapy). This highly specific therapy consists of a family of treatments to help the brain re-wire itself and thus regain some function in the more-affected limb. CI Therapy has been researched extensively and is currently considered the gold standard in neurological rehabilitation. Patients who have completed the treatment program have made gains in the quality of movement and in the amount of use of their more-affected upper extremity.

The Neuro Hub is the premier provider of CI Therapy in the Central Florida area.  The Neuro Hub therapists are trained in standard CI Therapy by Dr. Taub, the inventor of CI Therapy, and the UAB CI Research Group.

What is Constraint Induced Therapy?

  • Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is an innovative, high intensity, research supported treatment approach that assists individuals in increasing the functional use of a hemiplegic arm.
  • CIMT is the physical restraining of a non-affected arm after neurological injury such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, or traumatic brain injury, forcing use of the affected arm.
  • CIMT is designed to help the brain rewire itself to improve functional use of the affected arm.
  • CIMT is aimed at eliminating so-called “learned non-use” in which the affected arm is not used after injury, and compensation is made by relying on the arm that is not affected or less affected.
  • Research on CIMT is extensive and supports the effectiveness of this treatment approach.
  • Due to the intensity of this program, insurance companies seldom provide reimbursements; therefore, this program is rarely offered in typical outpatient clinics.

How can The Neuro Hub help?

The Neuro Hub offers a specialized occupational therapy program for clients who have suffered neurological injury and qualify for this intervention.

  • The program involves intensive treatment sessions of 4 hours per day, 5 times per week for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Compliance of client and family are necessary for the duration of the rigorous restraint period.
  • Sessions will be tailored to meet needs of individual clients.
  • Treatments will be focused on functional use of the affected arm.

Do you know how to choose a rehabilitation center, specific to your needs?

After being discharged from inpatient or home health therapy you will be faced with many new, challenging decisions, most importantly: What is next?

Knowing where to turn to for rehabilitation and support after a life-changing neurological injury or illness can be a daunting task. Outpatient therapy is a crucial part in recovery after stroke, spinal cord injury and other neurological diagnosis. Choosing the rehab center that fits your needs is one of the most important decisions you will make during your recovery.

So, how exactly do you choose the right rehabilitation center?

Here are some important questions that will help guide your decision:

  • Does the rehab facility provide treatment specific to your diagnosis?
  • Are the treating therapists skilled, specialized, certified and highly experienced with your diagnosis?
  • Does the facility offer a variety of treatment techniques (such as neuromuscular electrical stimulation, splinting/casting, or equipment/tools/technology, etc.) specific to your needs.
  • Does the rehab facility have a formal system for evaluating progress?
  • How does the rehab facility assure high-quality care?
  • Are staff members required to keep up with new information and technology about neurological rehabilitation? How do they do so?
  • Does the rehab facility teach family and caregivers on specific programs to be able to perform them at home in addition to therapy?

“There is increasing evidence that rehabilitation can have a big impact on survivors’ quality of life, so the time is right to review the evidence in this complex field and highlight effective and important aspects of rehabilitation,” said Carolee J. Winstein, Ph.D., lead author of the scientific statement published in the May 2016 issue of the American Heart Association Journal Stroke.
Take charge of choosing the right rehab facility.  Make sure you discuss your options with your healthcare team and use the questions above to guide you as you find the information you need to make the best decision for your family.
