- Blood vessel disorders in the brain or spinal cord, such as aneurysms or arteriovenous malformations (AVM)
- Brain injury, including anoxic injury or traumatic brain injury
- Brain tumors, both benign and cancerous

Am I a good candidate for Neuro-Rehabilitation?
Neuro-rehabilitation is best suited for people who are experiencing lingering problems after a neurological injury or disease. People experiencing difficulty with speech, movement, vision, balance, and many other complications of neurological problems can almost always benefit.
Neuro-rehabilitation requires the patient to be mature enough to make a commitment to the treatment plan. A person in neuro-rehabilitation will get help and guidance from a team of experts, but they need to have the will and courage to progress through what can be a very demanding treatment schedule.
It is a common misconception that neuro-rehabilitation needs to take place immediately after a neurological injury to be effective. In fact, it is never too late to start a neuro-rehabilitation program. Many people can get significant benefits and regain noticeable function months or even years after their initial injury.
