Neurology

Neurological physiotherapy is the treatment of patients who have a neurological disorder. Neurological disorders are those affecting the brain, spinal cord and nerves; such as Cerebral palsy, stroke, MS and Parkinson’s disease.

How does neurological physiotherapy differ from other physiotherapy?

When the nervous system is damaged muscles may feel weak and floppy or very tight with spasms or tremor and movement may be uncoordinated. Along with movement disorders there may be altered sensation and problems with speech and swallowing.

Your initial assessment will consist of a full physical assessment and a detailed account of your past medical history and previous mobility.

Physiotherapy goals will then be set between you and your physiotherapist (and, if appropriate, your family or careers) before treatment is started

Treatment is specific to you, and involves methods to overcome your physical problems such as stretching, strengthening, balance and walking practice (if appropriate), respiratory assessment and education. Advice and recommendations will also be given on suitable walking aids and home adaptations / equipment. Treatment programs vary depending on your symptoms and condition, Meer PT are able to provide intensive daily physiotherapy treatment or maintenance physiotherapy of one or two sessions per month..

The physiotherapists at Meer PT can offer treatment and advice at any stage of a condition; sometimes early treatment can prevent the progression of a condition and prevent secondary complications. In some cases, although conditions may progress over time, there can still be gains by having physiotherapy to improve quality of life and promote independence

Adult Neurological Physiotherapy

Adult neurological physiotherapy refers to the rehabilitation of people aged over 18 with neurological conditions. At Meer PT we have experienced adult neurological physiotherapists who offer specialized physiotherapy treatments for people with many different neurological conditions.

At Meer PT we treat a number of neurological conditions, including:

 

Stroke
Spinal cord injury
Multiple Sclerosis
Parkinson’s disease
Cerebral Palsy
Motor Neuron Disease
Head injury
Peripheral nerve injury
Guillain Barre Syndrome
Vestibular rehabilitation

 

Our specialized physiotherapists will initially provide a thorough assessment before developing a structured treatment program unique to your needs. Treatment programs may include:

  • Improving standing and quality of walking
  • Strengthening
  • Balance exercises
  • Developing gross and fine motor skills
  • Re-educating normal movement patterns
  • Stretching
  • Offering guidance and advice to family and caregivers
  • Physiotherapy regularly utilizes hands-on treatment combined with exercise to aid improvement.

Your treatment approach will be determined by your individual requirements to ensure the best possible treatment is offered.
Depending on your needs, adult neurological physiotherapy treatment is offered in the comfort of your own home or at our center.
For adults with physical neurological problems physiotherapy should begin almost immediately. At Meer PT there are no waiting lists and we are therefore able to offer early intervention. Our physiotherapists also work directly with occupational therapists who can offer further equipment and treatment should it be required.
