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 our clinic. Home based treatment sessions are limited to mat based exercises and walking practise. Clinic based treatment sessions are able to incorporate a larger range of physiotherapy exercises using different machines to enhance your strengthening programme. During physiotherapy treatment sessions we are able to teach your family members and or your carers how to assist with your stretching and home strengthening programme.
Neuro 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, a combination of neurophysiotherapy and the use of FES machines in clinic, Massage Therapy, Neuro Pilates and or Personal Training may be recommended to maintain and enhance your progress.
A majority of our clients attend up to three sessions per week in clinic working on their individual physical management programmes.
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. We continue to attend regular courses to enhance our 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.
