Neurological physiotherapy is specific to treating individuals who suffer from a neurological disorder or disease affecting the central nervous system. These include Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, brain injury, cerebral palsy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, and stroke. Patients who suffer with any of the above mentioned condition may often battle neurologic impairments of activities of daily living, ambulation, balance, functional independence, movement, muscle strength and loss of vision. Neurological Physiotherapy can address many of these impairments and aid in restoring and maintaining function, slowing disease progression, and improving quality of life.
Neurological physiotherapy also addresses conditions affecting the peripheral nervous system, such as Guillain Barre Syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, diabetic nerve problems. Other injuries are sustained from nerve compression, like carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome. In some cases, like complex regional pain syndrome and brachial plexus injuries, the problem begins after an injury.
Symptoms often start gradually, and then get worse. They include: burning or tingling, numbness, muscle weakness, pain and sensitivity to touch.
A Physiotherapists treatment plan will target any underlying problem, reduce pain and control symptoms by re-learning or re-establishment of movement patterns that help the patient to function to the maximum of our ability.
Our Physiotherapists will employ treatment techniques that include: acupuncture (although not all our physiotherapists are qualified to do this), advice on lifestyle and fatigue management, balance and coordination exercises, electrical stimulation, specific exercises to re-activate specific muscle groups, joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilizations and movement re-education.
