⦁ Neurological Physiotherapy is a specialist type of physiotherapy, whereby Therapists have undertaken further training and gained experience working with people who have had injuries or damage to their nervous system.
⦁ The most common conditions are Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease and Spinal Cord Injury. Neuro Physiotherapists will have treated people with a variety of other conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease, Peripheral Nerve damage, Vestibular problems and congenital conditions.
⦁ Damage to the nervous system can lead to symptoms such as muscle weakness or stiffness. In addition pain, altered sensation, tremor, spasticity or balance impairments.
⦁ These symptoms impact on functional tasks such as moving around the house, access to work and on everyday life and leisure pursuits.
⦁ A Neuro Physiotherapist will support and teach you methods and strategies to improve how you move and make these functional tasks easier and more efficient. This may include facilitation techniques, strengthening programmes or knowledge of specialist equipment or aides.
⦁ Advice to the client, families and carers is a very important part of the rehabilitation process.
⦁ Setting up self-management programmes for people with long term conditions will maximise their independence and function.
“Caroline Bullock has been coming to us from the time when my husband left the hospital after a stroke. She helped us with the shock of his sudden immobility and then set clear and realistic goals to strengthen his muscles and encourage him to stand. Her skill and optimism have encouraged him to progress”
