The rehabilitation of the nervous system

What does rehabilitation look like?

Rehabilitating the nervous system forms the foundation of our therapy approach, tailored to each individual’s needs. Following a comprehensive Functional Neurological Examination, we design a personalized rehabilitation plan, often delivered during an intensive week of diverse treatments and therapies aimed at enhancing brain and nervous system functionality through various modalities.

The background of our rehabilitation

The background of our rehabilitation This is usually not because neurons are damaged or because part of the brain is broken. In most cases there is reduced cooperation between parts of the brain, poor coordination or poorer regulation of stimuli. This can be due to many different causes, such as:

  • > Connections between parts of the brain that are disrupted
  • > Senses that send distorted information to the brain
  • > Disturbed autonomic functions
  • > Disrupted feedback mechanisms
  • > Damage to nerves or nerve pathways

But there can be all kinds of other causes why the brain does not function properly. This is not always the case because something is actually broken in the brain. In many more cases there is less cooperation or less good coordination. The goal of rehabilitation is therefore to restore communication and cooperation between parts of the nervous system.

Your road to recovery

One week of intensive treatment

Step 1

The Functional Neurological Examination (FNE)

You tell us about your complaints. We will ask you the necessary questions about this and do a complete Neurological Examination. We determine if you are a suitable candidate for our treatment.

Step 2

Advanced Machine Testing (quantification)

Based on Step 1, we determine what test are necessary to quantify the underlying cause of the symptoms. To do this, we use a range of computer-controlled equipment.

Step 3

Rehabilitation week (in 5 days)

We address the problems. Through an individual program specifically tailored to your problems, we bring back function during an intensive week of treatment.

Step 4


After the 5-day intensive treatment week, we will give you homework assignments. These are exercises that further promote your recovery. We are happy to keep an eye on these developments with you.

What does the intensive week during our rehabilitation look like?

We start the week with an investigation to determine your current situation. Because we repeat this same study at the end of the week, this immediately gives an idea of ​​progress. During the treatment week, you will be present at our center during the day from Monday to Friday.

During these days we offer all kinds of different therapies. These can vary from training the brain function that must filter stimuli from certain senses (to prevent overload) to stimulating nerve cells in a brain circuit that is far too inactive.

Below you have an overview of which therapies can be part of the rehabilitation. Which therapies are or are not used depends entirely on your situation. We use therapies that we know can make a difference for people in your situation.

Overview of therapies/treatments

Start rehabilitation

Before initiating rehabilitation, we carefully assess whether your symptoms align with the potential benefits of our therapy. Drawing from our extensive experience helping numerous individuals, we analyze which complaints are likely to respond well to our approach. Through the Functional Neurological Examination (FNE), we identify the specific brain functions and areas associated with your symptoms, guiding us in tailoring a rehabilitation plan that best suits your needs and ensures optimal outcomes.

What does ABC expect from you?

Our treatment for dysautonomic complaints is most effective when done within a short period of time. This means that we offer therapy (rehabilitation) in the form of a full week of a variety of therapies. Within this intensive program we do tests and training to restore the balance between different parts of the nervous system/brain.
Providing treatment within one week is integral to treatment success. Thus, it is not possible to offer them in phases. Therefore, if you want to work permanently on your recovery, we ask that you invest a full week.
