Neurological Physiotherapy refers to the treatment of individuals who have problems related to the body’s nerve systems (which stem from the brain and spinal cord).

Examples of neurological conditions that may benefit from neuro-physiotherapy include:

  • Stroke, CVA or TIA

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Parkinsons Disease

  • Guillain Barre Syndrome

  • Functional Neurological Disorders

A neurological physiotherapy assessment will look at how the whole body functions and will identify problems for rehabilitation.  Client goals will be set with the therapist, along with initial outcome measures that carefully monitor how individuals respond to the rehabilitation plan.

Examples of neurological problems that may require neurological physiotherapy interventions are:

  • Muscle weakness/asymmetry

  • Poor balance/coordination

  • Uncontrolled muscle spasms

  • Muscle tightness

  • Loss of sensation

  • Altered walking pattern

Neurological physiotherapy uses a combination of gentle therapeutic handling and tailored exercise programs to encourage normal movement.
