What Causes Neurological Conditions?Neurological conditions encompass a broad range of disorders affecting the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves.

At Cypress Physical Therapy, we specialize in addressing neurological conditions, leveraging our expertise to provide targeted solutions. Some common neurological conditions and their causes include:

  • Stroke: Caused by disrupted blood flow to the brain, leading to brain damage. Risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, and diabetes.
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS): An autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the protective covering of nerve fibers, leading to communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. The exact cause is unknown.
  • Parkinson's Disease: Characterized by the degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. The precise cause is unclear, but both genetic and environmental factors may play a role.
  • Spinal Cord Injury: Often caused by trauma, such as car accidents or falls, resulting in damage to the spinal cord and impairing nerve function below the injury site.
  • Peripheral Neuropathy: A condition where peripheral nerves are damaged, leading to symptoms like numbness, tingling, and weakness. Causes include diabetes, infections, and autoimmune diseases.

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in managing neurological conditions by addressing physical impairments, promoting functional independence, and enhancing quality of life. Treatment approaches may include:


Movement Training

Exercises to improve strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance to enhance mobility and reduce fall risk.


Gait Training

Techniques to improve walking pattern and stability, using assistive devices if necessary.



Specific exercises and activities designed to stimulate neuroplasticity, helping the brain adapt and reorganize neural pathways to compensate for damage.


Manual Therapy

Hands-on techniques to improve joint mobility, reduce muscle stiffness, and alleviate pain.


Balance and Vestibular Rehabilitation

Exercises to improve balance and reduce dizziness or vertigo symptoms, often beneficial for conditions like MS or vestibular disorders.


Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)

Using electrical currents to stimulate weakened muscles, promoting muscle contraction and movement.
