Neuro physio

Physiotherapy for neurological rehabilitation

Physiotherapy is a vital part of rehabilitation for physical problems caused by neurological conditions and injuries.

About

Physiotherapy can play an important part in your recovery on a neurological rehabilitation programme. 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.

Need to know

  • What happens icon plus

    If you have experienced damage to your brain, spinal column or nerves due to illness or injury, neuro physio will be part of your 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 therapy might include manipulation, a hands-on technique aimed at addressing stiffness, pain and restoring normal, pain-free movement, as well as massage. It will also involve physical exercises (sometimes involving special equipment) and breathing exercises.
  • How to prepare icon plus

    Neurology is a specialist branch of medicine, which focuses on the nervous system. Neurological disorders can limit your body’s ability to function correctly, causing symptoms that range from headaches or memory loss to a lack of sensation or control of a limb.

    That's why we take a multidisciplinary approach to care. Our neurologists work closely with a range of specialists - including physiotherapists - giving you personalised care, whatever your condition.Our consultants will help you prepare for physio and are available to answer any questions or concerns you have.
  • Afterwards icon plus

    You'll usually have a course of physiotherapy treatment sessions, and your progress will be reviewed at each one to make sure you're heading in the right direction. Your physiotherapist will advise you on exercises you can do at home and ensure you know how to do them properly to achieve the benefits.

    Additional types of therapy you may be offered include hydrotherapy in a special heated pool. We also offer specialist physio for children who are having neurological rehabilitation at The Portland Hospital.
