What is Neurological Physiotherapy?
Neurological physiotherapy treats patients with neurological conditions, which are movement and functional disorders caused by impairments affecting the brain, spinal cord and the nervous system. Some of the conditions that we treat include:
- Acquired Brain Injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson's Disease
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Balance and Mobility Issues
- Difficulty in Walking
Benefits of Neurological Physiotherapy
Many patients with neurological conditions struggle with a loss of range of motion or function, muscle weakness, decreased balance and stamina, which may severely affect their daily routines. Targeted to improve strength, movement, balance and coordination, neurological physiotherapy works by stimulating the nervous system through various activities and exercises. Not only does neurological physiotherapy help with a patient's mobility related disorders, it also helps them gain a better outlook and confidence on their conditions by improving their overall quality of life through:
- Better balance and coordination
- Improved walking
- Optimized function on affected areas
- Increased stamina and endurance
- Increased strength and less tension in affected muscles
- Reduced contractures
- Optimized independence
