The goal of our NeuroRehab program at A4 Clinics is to enable healing through NEUROPLASTICITY.
Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to repair, adapt and regenerate in response to the environment and stimuli.
Human brain consists of 100 billion plus neurons (specialized brain cells) that form a very extensive and intricate network. This network of neuron in the human brain controls all our body movements, thinking, learning, memory and consciousness. In neurological diseases such as Stoke / Paralysis, some parts of this neuronal network gets damaged.
At A4 Clinics, we aim to heal your BODY and BRAIN through innovative treatments such as robotic rehabilitation, brain stimulation, and virtual rehabilitation.
Through repeated, intense and precise movements along with engagement of the brain, our neurorehab program is geared to induce neuroplasticity in the brain.
Neuroplasticity was once thought by neuroscientists to manifest only during childhood, but research in the latter half of the 20th century showed that many aspects of the brain can be alterd (or are “plastic”) even through adulthood. Activity-dependent plasticity can have significant implications for healthy development, learning, memory, and recovery from brain damage.
