Neurological Problems & Disorders
Neurological problems and disorders can make it difficult to stay independent or to move around. Specialist neurological physiotherapy can compliment any medication prescribed by your doctor. It can help you to improve your mobility at home or at work, reduce any pain you have and enhance the quality of your life. You will need to see one of our specialist neurological physiotherapists, who can optimise your treatment and rehabilitation.
What Are Neurological Disorders?
Neurological disorders are associated with the body’s nervous system. This means they can be problems with the brain, nerves or spinal cord. Neurological disorders can cause a range of mobility and movement problems, including tremors, problems with swallowing, muscle weakness or spasms. Physiotherapy treatment and advice can be given at any stage of a condition, but early treatment can help to prevent accidents, such as trips or falls. In some cases, this can also help to prevent your condition from progressing as quickly. If you think you may be suffering with a neurological problem, it is important to seek treatment straight away.
Treating Conditions Such As Multiple Sclerosis & Stroke
Physiotherapy is an effective way to treat the symptoms of conditions like multiple sclerosis, parkinsons disease, strokes and brain injuries or head injuries. After your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will design a personlised manual therapy and rehabilitation programme, including an exercise prescription with specific goals and targets. Your rehabilitation and exercises will be designed to suit your specific requirements and may involve stretching or walking practice. You may also be given advice on posture, mobility aids and adaptations to your home. Your treatment will aim to give you better mobility, better confidence and greater independence.
