Common Treatment Methods for Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder that causes the immune system to turn on the body and attack the peripheral nervous system.

GBS can cause symptoms including:

  • Severe pain, especially at night
  • Tingling in the hands, fists, ankles, and wrists
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Abnormal gait, difficulty climbing stairs and walking

We provide comprehensive treatment and management for GBS. Our skilled and experienced team helps patients learn how to manage the symptoms so they can prevent some of the more serious complications.

Our Guillain-Barre recovery program offers specialized care with important focus on the following areas:

  • Rebuilding neuromuscular control
  • Strengthening exercises to assist with mobility, transfers, and activities of daily living
  • Reducing pain, anxiety or depression
  • Treating chewing, swallowing or speaking difficulties
  • Assistive devices such as leg cuffs to improve quality of life and reduce circulatory problems
  • Adaptive techniques and strategies to allow a return to activities of daily living without an exacerbation of symptoms
