Neurological Physiotherapy is specialised physiotherapy to treat people who have suffered damage to the central nervous system caused by Neurological Conditions such as:
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Motor Neurone Disease
• Head Injury
• Spinal Cord Injury
• Cerebral Palsy
• Other Neurological conditions
Damage to your central nervous system, including your brain and your spinal cord, means that the messages from your brain are not reaching the affected parts of your body.This can result in loss of movement and sensation, uncoordinated movement, weak and floppy muscles, spasm and tremor.
How does it work?
Neurological Physiotherapy is able to kick-start the message pathways that your brain is struggling to use, to make new pathways through repetitive actions and exercises. Many of our clients who undergo our specialised Physiotherapy can improve some of their symptoms such as, difficulties with loss of balance, loss of hand and arm, or leg and foot function, walking, spasticity and pain.
A DDB Physiotherapy Clinic, Neurological Physiotherapist will assess your symptoms and work with you to achieve your goals, whether that is to walk to the shops, drive your car again, relearn to open and close your hand, or to help you return to work or sport.
What can I expect?
Regardless of your condition, each person is different, has individual goals and requires a treatment plan unique to them.
An assessment by one of our Neurological Physiotherapists is the first stepping stone to identifying your difficulties and impairments, setting your goals and working together to enable you to explore your potential and maximise your independence.
