NeuroLab 360
Meagan George,
NeuroLab 360 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization owned and operated by Doctors of Physical Therapy who are Board Certified Neurologic Clinical Specialists. We are on a mission to provide affordable, specialized and accessible physical therapy and wellness that is not bound by insurance limitations. NeuroLab 360 is a private pay clinic in order to focus on each individual's goals rather than what insurance deems as medically necessary. However, we fundraise via grants and private donations in order to provide our services on a sliding scale. We specialize in the treatment of any neurologic condition including Spinal Cord Injury, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson's Disease, Vertigo and Balance Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, and ALS. NeuroLab 360 was started as a clinic to serve individuals in the community who have been limited by their insurance, have run out of insurance covered visits, or would like an adjunct to their current physical therapy plan in order to achieve the frequency and duration of treatment necessary to meet their goals. We also offer group exercise classes and have some free community services including an Aphasia Group, Manual Wheelchair Skills Class and Parkinson's Group Exercise Class
