Frequently asked questions neuro physio Sunshine Coast

What is neurological physiotherapy?


A neurological physiotherapist treats people with movement and function disorders that have originated from the body’s nervous system. They consider the impact the nervous system damage has on their movement. 

For a detailed answer to this question, please check out the page explaining what neurological physiotherapy is.


What neurological conditions do we work with?


There are many neurological conditions in the world today, so it’s impossible to list them all. However, we work with a wide range of conditions, including the following: acquired brain injury, dystonia, cerebral palsy, Functional Neurological Disorder, Huntington’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and vestibular disorders.

We also work with the following neurological conditions which can be found on the Other Conditions page: ataxia, concussion, dementia, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Motor Neurone Disease, muscular dystrophy, myositis, multisystem atrophy, neuropathy and post-polio syndrome, progressive supranuclear palsy and spinal cord injuries. 


What can I expect from a therapy session?


Your first physiotherapy session is focused on hearing your story. Your physiotherapist will allow between 60 to 90 minutes to listen to your personal journey, incorporating your medical history. It’s important to understand where you’ve come from, your current situation, and what you’re hoping for.

Your second session is a physical assessment to determine your level of function and your unique challenges. It’s vital for your physiotherapist to know your abilities, as well as your struggles, to come up with a personalised treatment plan that’s in line with your goals.
