Neurological Physiotherapy specialises in the assessment and treatment of individuals who have either had a neurological event such a stroke, brain injury or spinal cord injury, or have a neurological condition, for example Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.
Assessment is aimed at identifying a patient’s physical limitations and then establishing the most appropriate and specific treatment and management goals. This may involve strengthening and mobilising work, stretching, balance and coordination activities, walking re-education and training, as well as advice on home exercise programs.
A key focus of treatment is to optimise individual’s functional abilities through gaining more efficient movement, ensuring they are involved in the process as much as possible.
