NEUROLOGICAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

Neurological Services

As well as physical injury and rehabilitation, there are a numerous neurological disorders and injuries that require the support of a PhysioComesToYou neurological therapist.

Neurological physiotherapy can be a complex and challenging process that includes many areas of a patient’s life, which will include multiple neurological therapy services. Often occupational therapy and speech and language therapy in addition to physiotherapy are also needed and in some cases psychological support.

Initial focus will be on a neurological exam to assess the level of treatment required before a programme of treatment can be designed around your needs. The neurological services required by a patient could be as a result of a head injury, nerve injury, a developmental concern or as a consequence of age. By addressing the issues with comprehensive neurological services it is possible to aid recovery, improve development or slow degenerative conditions


What is Neurological Physiotherapy?

The nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. When something causes a problem within the nervous system then this can lead to a neurological disorder, which can cause problems moving, swallowing, talking and even breathing. Sometimes it causes disturbances in mood, what you feel when touching and memory loss. Neurological physiotherapists are specifically trained in treating people with neurological disorders


The Role of Neurological Physiotherapy 

After conducting the initial physiotherapy neurological assessment, the role of the therapist is to ascertain the patient’s specific needs and design a neurological rehabilitation programme around these requirements.

This may involve liaising with and utilising a number of other services, including care homes, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.

The therapist will often devise an extensive neurological physiotherapy exercises programme for the patient to perform on a regular basis. This aims to train the neurological system to function in a more effective way, improving quality of life for the patient. It can be a challenging process but real progress can be made.
