Neurological Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation

This relates to the assessment and treatment of people with disorders of the nervous system.

WHAT IS NEUROLOGICAL PHYSIOTHERAPY & REHABILITATION?

This term relates to the assessment and treatment of people with disorders of the nervous system. This includes conditions affecting the central nervous system, such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease, Spinal Cord Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury. It also includes many other less common conditions.

Treatment is aimed at correcting alignment, improving movement patterns and function, maximising independence, increasing activity levels and avoiding the complications of neurological injury, such as muscle shortening and contractures.

Treatment approaches include:
  • Joint mobilisations.
  • Soft tissue mobilisations/stretching.
  • JFB Myofascial release.
  • Balance exercises.
  • Muscle activation and strengthening.
  • Mobility and movement re-education.
  • 24 hour postural management and splinting (where needed).
  • Exercise prescription.
  • Advice on lifestyle and fatigue management.
What to expect from treatment?

During the first session, we will talk to you about what you would like to achieve from Physiotherapy. It may be that you have a tight arm or hand that needs stretching/releasing or you may want to be able to work on your walking – whatever it is, we will work with you by setting goals together and agreeing a treatment plan.

We will also assess you by looking at what you can do, looking at your posture and strength so we can understand why you may have difficulties in a certain area.

Having worked in longer term neuro rehabilitation, where we see people change and improve after many years following their injury (e.g. brain injury or stroke) or diagnosis (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease), we have a philosophy, which is never say never!

Tracheostomy/respiratory care:

If you have a long-term tracheostomy or a lung condition, we also have many years of experience in the treatment and management of tracheostomies. Suzy has been training carers and nurses to deliver tracheostomy care for the last 7 years and enjoys sharing her knowledge to ensure patients are well managed. Weaning from a tracheostomy after years of having one is also not impossible – it may just need another opinion or another go at it, as things change over time.

Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDOC):

We have many years of experience specialising in PDOC and can adapt treatment and management according to the needs of each person. Call us to discuss your loved one’s needs.
