Physiotherapy for Neurological Conditions

Specialist physiotherapy for people with neurological conditions is tailored towards the rehabilitation goals of each patient and may involve a variety of treatment methods.  For those needing neurological physiotherapy Ann predominantly sees people post stroke, as this is her specialism within neurology.

Neurological conditions are those relating to anything involving the brain and spinal cord, collectively known as the central nervous system (CNS). When there is damage to the CNS, the transfer of information to and from the brain and how that information is processed is affected.

Our brains are amazing, they have a capacity to learn and adapt (neuroplasticity). With neurological physiotherapy we target the communication between the brain and body to make changes. Ann takes a holistic whole person approach to care and tailors treatment for each person.

Who we see

We can see people who can mobilise independently (with or without a walking aid).

What to expect

The first appointment is an assessment appointment which involves taking a detailed history and assessing different aspects of movement like range of movement, strength, speed and control of movement, awareness of body position in space, sensation and balance.  There may also be questionnaires to complete at this appointment. Sometimes it is not possible to complete the whole assessment at the first appointment, depending on the complexity of your condition, this will be discussed with you.  The initial appointment is up to an hour, if you would like to be given treatment, like exercises, at your first appointment you can choose to make an up to 1.5 hour appointment.
Treatment programmes commonly include:
