Neurological Physiotherapy

By keeping pace with continuous advances in neurological physiotherapy, The Rehab Physio offers access to specialist treatments (which are not available on the NHS) to help our patients to maximise their recovery.

Our team of specialists is able to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients who may have suffered years of disability as a result of a neurological condition or major traumatic injury.

As a private clinic, our independence means that we’re free to explore and invest in cutting edge equipment and techniques to enable our patients to optimise their recovery and often exceed their original prognosis…and their own expectations.

 

The underlying principle of Neurological Physiotherapy is that the human body is an amazing thing. It adapts to the demands we put on it.

It’s often the case that following illness or injury we change the way we hold ourselves in response to things like pain, reduced muscle power or impaired balance. It’s a natural reaction, but it can cause problems – without expert guidance the body’s adaptive instinct to change posture can actually make matters worse.

Our Assessment

We start with an initial assessment. We’ll ask about the detailed history of your symptoms and find out which is the most important for you to change. We’ll also need to understand your relevant medical history and any related medications you’re taking, to allow us to plan-in any necessary precautions.

Next comes the physical assessment – this will be conducted on a plinth, a bed or the floor, depending on your physical ability. We will carefully look at things like your posture, movement of your limbs, your stability, co-ordination and balance, sensation and your ability to carry out typical daily activities. All this is supported by digital data collected by using our ‘Tyrostation’ and ‘GaitSens’ technology. From our own specialist experience, knowledge and this detailed data, we will create your rehabilitation plan.

Throughout, we’ll always give you the complete picture in clear, non-technical language. We believe that giving you a full and honest assessment is key for you to make good decisions about any future treatments, how often you’ll need to be seen, and what you can start doing to move forwards.

We will use a combination of hands-on therapy, specialist technology, specific exercises and functional practice. If we feel they could be beneficial, we’ll also assess you for other treatments such as hydrotherapy, Botox’ injections and splinting. From your assessment, we may recommend other services such as Occupational Therapy for consideration.

In every case, we’ll set a time frame for achieving your rehabilitation goals, and we’ll carefully measure your progress, so you’re always clear about what stage you’re at, and what you are aiming for.
