  Neurological disorder is recognized as disorder of the brain and nervous system. These disorders of different origin e.g. Toxic metabolic, vascular infection, immunological or traumatic (Leonard and Astun 1997), Neurological disorders pose a great public health challenges. They affect not mortality and morbidity but also enormous socio-economic impact on the patient and the family. In neurological rehabilitation patient goals are focused not only on improving independence in daily living activities, but also to enhance the socio-occupational functioning. In addition, the individual must be fit enough to perform the tasks of daily life, including taking part in spiritual and recreational activities. Participation in regular exercise and training appears to have significant effects on reducing disability and improving quality of life in older adults and in individuals with disability. Specialist rehabilitation services play a vital role in management of patients admitted to hospital by taking patients after their immediate medical and surgical needs have been met. Very highly trained rehabilitation professionals are in short supply. Rehabilitation is a process of assessment, treatment and management by which the individual (and their family/carers) are supported to achieve their maximum potential for physical, cognitive, social and psychological function. Neurological rehabilitation requires multi disciplinary team for assessment, treatment and management, which includes (Neuro physician, Neuro psychologist, Neurosocial worker, and Rehabilitation trained nurse, Physiotherapist, Occupational therapist, and Speech and language therapist, Orthotic, Dietician).
