Neuro Developmental Therapy (NDT)
Brain and spinal cord injuries can greatly affect your quality of life. These injuries affect mobility, cognitive functions, and even other physical and psychological processes.
The goal of neurological rehabilitation is to reduce pain, address motor dysfunction, promote independence, prevent further complications, and improve overall quality of life.
Neuro-Developmental therapy (NDT) is a holistic and interdisciplinary clinical practice model informed by current and evolving research that emphasizes individualized therapeutic handling based on movement analysis for rehabilitation of individuals with neurological conditions.
It is a hands-on, problem solving approach where the therapist uses his or her hands to provide guidance and optimize function. NDT certified therapists work together with patients, families, caregivers and other healthcare professionals to develop individualized comprehensive treatment plans based on NDT theory and philosophy.
