Neurological physiotherapy is the treatment of individuals who have neurological impairments; for example Traumatic Brain Injury or Stroke; Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury and Parkinson’s disease. At Thorpes Physiotherapy, our Neurological Physiotherapy team consists of Hannah, Judith and Helen and they specialise in assessing and treating individuals with such neurological impairments to enhance or maximise their functional ability. We cover a large area of North Hampshire, East Berkshire and West Surrey
A detailed initial neuro assessment is required to identify your physical impairments and goals before your treatment sessions may commence.
Physiotherapy can be carried out within your home or at our clinic. During treatment sessions our Physiotherapists are able to teach your family members and or your carers how to assist with your stretching and home strengthening programme.
Neurological Physiotherapy objectives
Neuro Physiotherapy aims to identify and maximise movement potential and your quality of life. Your treatment programme is specific to you and based on your goals identified during your initial assessment session. These may include: education, training, posture awareness, strengthening, stretching, sitting balance, standing balance, and walking practice (if applicable). We address issues proactively to prevent long term problems from developing. Your unique rehabilitation programme will aim to promote or enhance your movement potential in weaker muscle groups. Once your short term goals are achieved, neurophysiotherapy treatment is used to maintain and enhance your progress.
When clients present with progressive neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis, we aim to provide advice and treatment during each stage of the condition. If early intervention can be provided, it can help to prevent the progression of a progressive condition and reduce the degree of secondary complications. In some cases, clients can still make physical gains with improvements in posture, muscle strength and flexibility helping to improve their functional independence and their quality of life.
Why do I need Neurological Physiotherapist?
Neuro Physiotherapists have a special interest in working with clients with neurological impairments. Hannah, Judith and Helen continue to attend regular courses to enhance their treatment skills.
If you have a neurological impairment, your treatment should be provided by a Specialist Neuro Physiotherapist to ensure that the latest techniques are used within your treatment sessions.
