Neurological physiotherapy is the treatment of patients with a neurological condition effecting the brain, spinal cord and/or nerves. Some examples of neurological conditions we treat include;
- Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA) or Stroke
- Ischemic stroke caused by a blockage
- Haemorrhagic stroke caused by a rupture of the blood vessel
- Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries
These neurological conditions often lead to deficits such as muscle weakness, decreased balance and coordination, impaired sensation, tremors and muscle spasms and overall a decrease in function and quality of life.
Physiotherapy treatment for neurological conditions aims to target individual impairments through various exercises to stimulate the nervous system. Neurological physiotherapy can help to improve balance and coordination, improve walking technique and confidence, improve endurance, increase strength and optimise independence. At Southside physio our qualified physiotherapists can assess and provide you with an individualised treatment plan for all your neurological conditions.
