Neurological physiotherapy can offer help to patients at any stage of their condition. From early diagnosis, or discharge from hospital, when the aim is to maximise recovery and achieve the best functional level possible, to the ongoing management and maintenance of activity levels with longer term conditions.
Treatment will include a specialist assessment to determine your personalised goals, assistance with equipment recommendations and creation of long-term exercise programmes as appropriate.
Many different treatment approaches can be used, depending entirely on your particular needs. Bobath (or normal movement therapy) encourages the intact central nervous system to re-learn correct patterns of movement by correcting alignment and movement patterns. Motor re-learning uses task-specific training to correct the missing elements in an activity, so complex movements are broken down into their component parts and each part trained individually, so the movement can then be built back into a functional task.
