Neuromuscular Disease Rehabilitation

Neuromuscular diseases are rare acquired or inherited (genetic) conditions that affect some part of the neuromuscular system, such as:

TRP provides physical, occupational, and speech therapy for the following diagnoses:

Contrary to the old myth that exercise causes neuromuscular disease to progress, aerobic and strength-based exercises have been found to be beneficial in maintaining function and slowing down the progression of a neuromuscular disease. With treatments finally available for some neuromuscular diseases, it is crucial for patients’ recovery to receive rehabilitation from a team of qualified experts in this field.​

All of TRP’s treatments are evidence-based interventions and exercises using compensatory techniques. Each therapy session is 60 minutes in length, with one-on-one attention from an assigned therapist. We employ specialized equipment for these treatments, such as a body weight-support treadmill, functional electrical stimulation, Myopro technology, and vital stimulation for dysphagia.​


Our Neuromuscular Disease Rehabilitation Treatments

Supported Treadmill Training with LiteGait

LiteGait utilizes a harness system to safely practice ambulation overground or on the treadmill without fall risks.

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)

FES can improve strength and walking ability, as well as decrease fatigue and risk of falling for individuals recovering from a stroke.

Redcord Suspension Training

Redcord suspension exercises allow exercises to be completed more easily in a gravity-minimized environment. This not only helps strengthen muscles, but also enhances dynamic joint stability, muscle co-activation, and muscle synergies.


TRP has highly skilled clinicians prepared to pair you with the best prosthesis for optimal function in your affected arm(s). Therapists have completed training in the Myopro device, Saebo Flex, and Bioness H200, and can help you obtain a device for home.


This is an FDA-approved treatment for dysphagia utilizing neuromuscular electrical stimulation to reeducate the muscles required for swallowing food. This intervention can greatly benefit a patient’s ability to swallow foods and strengthen their vocal cords.

Once therapy is complete, TRP can offer wellness programs designed to maintain and reach your goals long after you're discharged.
