Neurological Physiotherapy

Neurological disorders result from damage to the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves; examples include Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis (MS)Parkinson's (PD), MND, learning disabilities, Cerebral Palsy (CP), Myalgic Encephalopathy (CSF/ME) and traumatic head injury. The aim of rehabilitation is to promote independence and quality of life by helping people to improve physical function. Our physiotherapists will work with you to identify your rehabilitation goals and design a programme on dry land or in our hydrotherapy pool to suit your specific needs.

Neurological rehabilitation uses movement therapy to target pathways in the central nervous system, which helps restore or promote normal movement patterns. As a result a re-mapping or reorganisation process occurs in the brain, this is called “neuroplasticity”. Neurological rehabilitation is designed to:

  • Promote the recovery of normal movement patterns to facilitate functional independence
  • Control tone (the amount of resistance to movement in a muscle)
  • Increase joint range of movement
  • Increase strength
  • Improve balance & coordination
  • Improve gross & fine motor control
  • Improve postural & core awareness

Treatment techniques may include exercise, stretching, strengthening, postural & gait re-education. Physiotherapy treatment tends to be task specific and functional to promote skill acquisition and motor re-learning designed to suit your specific needs.
