Neurological Rehabilitation

A Neurological Physiotherapist has a special interest in helping people with movement problems due to damage to the nervous and/or sensory systems.  These can be difficulties with activities such as:

  • Walking
  • Moving on the bed
  • Getting out of a chair
  • Feeling unsteady
  • Using arms & hands easily

Individual Assessment

Your therapist will assess you to determine the cause of your difficulties including such things as:

  • Strength
  • Co-ordination
  • Sensation
  • Movement Control
  • Joint function & structure
  • Dizziness

Provide a complete analysis of your movements such as :

  • Walking
  • Standing
  • Getting out of a chair
  • Bed movements
  • Reaching and hand activities

and take into account how these impact on your daily activities

Personalised Plans

Your therapist will then formulate a plan to help you reach achievable goals.

This may involve regular physiotherapy, less frequent monitoring for exercise reviews or consultation with other health professionals as required.
