Rehabilitation is a process of education of the disabled person with the ultimate aim of assisting that individual to cope with family, friends, work, and leisure as independently as possible [1]. Neurological rehabilitation denotes the medical subspecialty in the clinical interface between rehabilitation medicine and neurology [2]. Physiotherapists play a major role in rehabilitation. Neurological rehabilitation demands an interdisciplinary approach and the role of physiotherapists is crucial in that for prognosis and quality of life. Neurological rehabilitation and recovery is a slow and time-taking process and it demands patience from the neurological survivors as well as from the therapist.
