Neuro Physio

internal_diagram-410x243A Neurological Physiotherapist is a therapist who specialises in treating patients who have suffered an injury or disease affecting their central nervous system (CNS). These can include: stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, head injuries, Parkinson’s Disease, spinal injuries and other less well known conditions such as: Peripheral Neuropathy and Cerebellar Degeneration.

It is a long list and many of the conditions will affect the way and the ease with which people can move and balance.

Certain conditions may affect the stiffness of the muscles and sufferers can even experience unwanted activity in their bodies such as spasms.
Many people will feel that areas of their bodies do not have enough activity and feel moving against gravity extremely difficult.
Pain, which is a very common feature, may be due to hypersensitive skin and joints, or misaligned body parts, or the pain of learning to accept a disability.
