NDT/Stroke and Brain Injury Program
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in America. It can result in significant life changes, including loss of independence and participation in life roles. Sage Outpatient offers a specialized treatment approach for those who have suffered such loss due to a stroke or brain injury. Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) is a hands-on interdisciplinary approach used by Sage’s therapists to enhance the function of these individuals. NDT is based on the principles neuroplasticity (the ability of the nervous system to reorganize its structure, function, and connections). This results in the development of new nerve pathways, allowing patients to regain function lost from the neurologic event. The NDT approach uses patient specific functional and salient tasks to drive these neurological changes. Sage offers NDT certified physical and occupational therapists to utilize NDT principles and advanced skills in examination, evaluation, and treatment for stroke and brain injury survivors. These therapists work collaboratively with patients, loved ones and caregivers, physicians, and other members of the rehab team to develop an individualized activity-based plan of care.
So whether your goal is to return to fishing, playing with your grandkids, or cooking a pot of jambalaya, Sage has you covered. The NDT treatment approach maximizes outcomes to assist in getting you back in motion.
