Neurological rehabilitation is one of the branches of neurology. Disabilities like severe spinal injury or brain damage, the patient and their families' abilities, lifestyle, and projects, are suddenly shattered. Rehabilitation is a process of education of the disabled person with the goal of assisting that individual to cope with family, friends, work, and leisure as independently as possible. It leads to encouraging them to rebuild self-esteem and a positive mood. It should be Holistic, Patient-focused, Inclusive, Participatory, Sparing, Lifelong, Resolving and community-focused. There are three main areas in Neurorehabilitation are Intermediate care, Acute Rehabilitation, and Occupational Rehabilitation. Development in neuroimaging techniques enhanced the scope and outcome of neurorehabilitation.

Regeneration and repair in the nervous system is a process by which damaged tissue undergoes regrowth or renewal, leading to eventual restoration of nervous system function. This process happens more readily with axons, synapses, neurons and glia in the peripheral nervous system. when your neurons gets injured, you can't just grow new ones; instead, the existing cells have to repair themselves. In the case of axon injury, the neuron is able to repair or sometimes even fully regenerate its axon on its own. Once the insulating cover of the nerve is repaired, the nerve generally begins to heal three or four weeks after the injury. Nerves usually grow one inch every month, depending on the patient's age and other factors.

Neural therapy is a form of alternative medicine to treat chronic pain and illness by which local anesthetic is injected into certain locations of the body in an attempt. Neural therapy evolved and developed along with the discovery of local anesthetics and It has been described as a form of holistic medicine for treating illness and chronic pain. It is practiced mostly in South America and Europe.

Neuroplasticity is also known as brain plasticity and neural plasticity, is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual's life, e.g., brain activity associated with a given function can be transferred to a different location, the proportion of grey matter can change, and synapses may strengthen or weaken over time.  Neuroplasticity can be observed at multiple scales, from microscopic changes in individual neurons to larger-scale changes such as cortical remapping in response to injury. At the single cell level, synaptic plasticity refers to changes in the connections between neurons, whereas non-synaptic plasticity refers to changes in their intrinsic excitability.

Injuries, infections, degenerative diseases, structural defects, tumors, and disorders in the circulatory system can impair the nervous system. Some of the conditions that may benefit from neurological rehab may include: Vascular disorders, subdural hematoma, encephalitis, spinal cord injury, neuromuscular disorders, Functional disorders and Degenerative disorders. Exercise programs to improve movement, prevent or decrease weakness caused by lack of use, manage spasticity and pain, and maintain range of motion.

Neurofeedback (NFB), also called neurotherapy, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG), to teach self-regulation of brain function. Typically, sensors are placed on the scalp to measure activity, with measurements displayed using video displays or sound. Neurofeedback is commonly provided using video or sound, with positive feedback for desired brain activity and negative feedback for brain activity that is undesirable.

Neuromodulation is "the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body. Neuromodulation is an evolving therapy that can involve a range of electromagnetic stimuli such as a magnetic field (rTMS), an electric current, or a drug instilled directly in the subdural space. Neuromodulation therapy has been investigated for other chronic conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease, depression, chronic pain, and as an adjunctive treatment in recovery from stroke.

Rehabilitation robotics is a field of research dedicated to understanding and augmenting rehabilitation through the application of robotic devices. Rehabilitation robotics includes development of robotic devices tailored for assisting different sensorimotor functions, development of different schemes of assisting therapeutic training and assessment of sensorimotor performance of patient; here, robots are used mainly as therapy aids instead of assistive devices. Rehabilitation robotics can be considered a specific focus of biomedical engineering, and a part of human-robot interaction. In this field, clinicians, therapists, and engineers collaborate to help rehabilitate patients. Rehabilitation robotics may also include virtual reality technology.

The Armeo Therapy Concept can speed up the recovery process when it is used in addition to the conventional therapy strategies offered by a rehabilitation facility. Armeo Therapy Concept is on par with the conventional physical and occupational treatment concepts as it pertains to the effectiveness of regaining movement in a paralyzed arm. The training intensity with the Armeo technique (depending on how the exercise is completed) can be somewhat greater than is the case with conventional methods.

Neuroprosthetics (also called neural prosthetics) is a discipline related to neuroscience and biomedical engineering concerned with developing neural prostheses. They are sometimes contrasted with a brain–computer interface, which connects the brain to a computer rather than a device meant to replace missing biological functionality. Neural prostheses are a series of devices that can substitute a motor, sensory or cognitive modality that might have been damaged as a result of an injury or a disease. Neural implants are designed to be as small as possible in order to be minimally invasive, particularly in areas surrounding the brain, eyes or cochlea. These implants typically communicate with their prosthetic counterparts wirelessly.

Addiction is a persistent, impulsive dependence on a behavior or substance. The term has been halfway replaced by dependence for substance abuse. Addiction has been amplified, in any case, to include mood-altering practices or exercises. A few analysts discuss two sorts of addictions: substance addictions (for instance, liquor addiction, drug mishandle, and smoking); and process addictions (for instance, betting, spending, shopping, eating, and sexual activities). There is a developing acknowledgment that numerous addicts, for example, polydrug abusers, are dependent on more than one substance or process.

Neuroregeneration refers to the regrowth or repair of nervous tissues, cells or cell products. Such mechanisms may include generation of new neurons, glia, axons, myelin, or synapses. Neuroregeneration differs between the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the central nervous system (CNS) by the functional mechanisms and especially the extent and speed. When an axon is damaged, the distal segment undergoes Wallerian degeneration, losing its myelin sheath. The nervous system is divided into two parts: the central nervous system, which consists of the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system, which consists of cranial and spinal nerves along with their associated ganglia.

Recent studies of the mechanisms underlying plasticity and recovery following neurological injuries have originated innovative lines of research in neurorehabilitation. The development of new technologies to facilitate the performance of evaluation and intervention procedures has stimulated research on novel rehabilitation paradigms and more effective rehabilitation strategies. However, translation of novel interventions into clinical practice remains a challenge. Further investigation to evaluate the effectiveness of such rehabilitation approaches is needed.
