  • Do you want more independence?

  • Are you looking to get more use out of your arm or leg?

  • Would you like to improve your walking?

  • Have you been told you have one year to recover/regain your function?

What is NEURO-IFRAH and how will this help me?

Neuro-Integrative Functional Rehabilitation And Habilitation (NEURO-IFRAH®) is an approach originated by Waleed Al-Oboudi, MOT, OTR/L. It is hands-on integrative approach of all systems of the person as well as all information past and present.

One aspect of rehabilitation is to restore to the fullest physical, mental, social, vocational, economic status thus rehabilitation is not limited. Patients are not only re-acquiring skills they are learning new ones as well. Thus habilitation occurs throughout alongside with rehabilitation.

The powerful words used in the name of the approach gives a small glimpse of the wide scope of this truly dynamic, highly individualized, whole person, functional, inclusive, and visionary approach.
