The primary objective of this research was to highlight the importance of early physical therapy intervention in fighting neurological sequelae following surgical intervention and improving the patient's level of independence in cases of cerebral abscess. The study was based on identifying the degree of neuro-motor impairment immediately after the surgery, followed by establishing a specific physical therapy intervention strategy based on the identified manifestations. The subjects included in the study had a common clinical diagnosis of cerebral abscess and the presence of neurological sequelae post-surgery. The physical therapy approach consisted of neuro-proprioceptive facilitation techniques and methods, considered the most effective in such pathologies. The results obtained from the initial and final evaluations of the patients included in the study and their interpretation
highlighted that the early application of neuro-motor and proprioceptive facilitation techniques allowed achieving favorable results and reaching the proposed objectives.
