Neurological Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for Neurological Conditions

Very often people with neurological conditions or who have suffered a neurological incident require intense physiotherapy from specialised neurological physiotherapists to address any problems they may develop as a result. Physiocomestoyou, as the name suggests, means that our physiotherapists come to you. We therefore provide an ideal service for people who have difficulty in getting around and need help to optimize their function at home and in other functions of their daily life.

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.

Some of the neurological conditions we treat include:

  • Stroke
  • Head Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • Parkinsons Disease
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Guillan Barre Syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Dyspraxia
  • Tranverse Myelitus
  • Peripheral Nerve Injury

How does neurological physiotherapy differ from other physiotherapy?

Neurological physiotherapists will have more experience in treating neurological disorders.  They will have certain training they have undertaken which is specialised to treating neurological disorders and having knowledge of equipment that can be used and exercise techniques.

What does neurological physiotherapy involve?

Neurological physiotherapy aims to help you re-learn movement patterns that will then help you return to moving and activities of daily living you were able to do before improving your quality of life. Treatments can include a combination of techniques such as:

  • Exercises which get muscles working again
  • Stretching
  • Working on joints
  • Working on muscles and other soft tissues
  • Working on posture
  • Exercises to improve amount of movement in body
  • Advice on your lifestyle
  • Advice on increasing your energy and stopping fatigue
  • Teaching proper movements
  • Working on balance with exercises and vestibular rehab training (VRT) if required  – click here for more information on VRT
