Neurorehabilitation is a rapidly developing subspecialty of neurology due to medical advances and growing knowledge on functional recovery from brain injury such as plasticity and regeneration in the nervous system. Furthermore, progress in modern technologies facilitate new therapeutic concepts. Patient-tailored, flexible multimodal neurorehabilitation is essential in neurological diseases due to the diversity of symptoms. In addition, rehabilitative treatment should be realized from disease onset. To fulfill these goals, the neurocenter of the Cantonal Hospital Lucerne established an uninterrupted treatment chain from the emergency stage to the social and occupational reintegration, which is described in this article with a focus on stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis patients.
