Physio for neurological rehabilitation

Rehabilitative physiotherapy

Physiotherapy helps with physical problems caused by a neurological condition or injury such as head trauma or stroke.

About physiotherapy and rehabilitation

If you're following a neurological rehabilitation programme, physio can play an important part in your progress. It's designed to help with some of the physical issues you might experience if you've had a head or spinal injury, an accident, stroke or if you have a neurological condition such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis.

When you have physio as part of a neurological rehabilitation programme, the aim is to manage muscle contraction (spasticity), improve strength, co-ordination, balance and your ability to control movements in your body. Your programme might include hands-on manipulation and massage, physical exercises (sometimes involving special equipment), and breathing exercises. You may even have hydrotherapy in a special heated pool.

The Portland Hospital offers specialist physio for children who are having neurological rehabilitation.
