Neurological Physiotherapy

What is neurophysiotherapy? Anyone affected by a neurological condition will come across this term. It simply means physiotherapy applied with specialist regard for the neurological system and how it has affected the body. A neurophysiotherapist will complete a specialist assessment and use a different range of treatment techniques to help address the problems created by neurological conditions. These are conditions which affect the central nervous system, that's the brain and spinal cord.

The problems created by neurological conditions are many and varied. They can include muscle spasms, weakness, tightness and contracture. There can also be postural difficulties, inco-ordination, pain and altered sensation.

Because of the variety of presentations and problems, a neurophysiotherapist will use a tailored approach to treatment after a thorough individual assessment. The assesment will include an analysis of movement and therefore the treatment is likely to involve some movement re-education. Usually a treatment series will also involve advice and exercises for you to continue between sessions. For particular problems, your neurophysiotherapist can also use adjunct therapies such as FES, Saebo, Dynamic Movement Orthoses, Air Splints, Splinting/Casting (see links below for further information).

Working together to achieve 

your goals

Sharp Neurological Physiotherapy believe that a thorough initial assessment should result in a personally tailored treatment program which addresses the client's needs and goals. It should be selected from treatments with good clinical evidence behind them, balanced by personal ability and preference. There's usually more than one way to successfully achieve improvements.

 Functional Electrical Stimulation
