Neurological Physiotherapy 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, Parkinson’s, Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury and Cerebral Palsy. It also includes conditions affecting the peripheral nervous system, such as peripheral neuropathy and Guillain Barre Syndrome, as well as many other less common conditions. Most approaches involve the re-learning or re-establishment of movement patterns that help us to function to the maximum of our ability.
When the Central nervous system, which includes the brain and your
spinal cord is damaged the messages from your brain are not reaching
the affected parts of your body. The effects of this damage can cause
cognitive and physical deficits resulting in loss of movement and sensation,
uncoordinated movement, weak and floppy muscles, spasm and tremor.
Your symptoms may include loss of balance whilst standing and walking,
poor functional hand, arm, leg and foot movement, spasticity and pain.
Neurological Physiotherapy helps restart and revive the message pathways
that the brain is struggling to use, enabling new pathways through repetition
of movement and exercises. We are able to assess your symptoms and work
with you to achieve your goals.
Neurological assessment by our Neuro-Physiotherapists will help put together a treatment programme specific to your individual needs and goals, which will aid and encourage you to allow your body to respond in a much more effective and efficient way.
Assessment and Treatment can be carried out either at our clinic in Rotherham or in your own home. Our Physiotherapists and Rehabilitation Technicians are trained in specialised hands on treatment techniques and approaches, specific to the treatment of Neurological conditions.
