What is Neurological Physiotherapy?

Rather than looking at your movement from the perspective of muscles and joints alone, a neurological physiotherapist considers to what extent nervous system damage impacts your movement. In other words, neurological physiotherapy focuses on treating movement and function issues that originate from the body’s neuromuscular system. This process involves the assessment, treatment, management and rehabilitation of these issues.

Most neurological conditions are permanent, but people living with these conditions may benefit from the help of neurological physiotherapists who understand the complexity of these disorders. A key part of neurological physiotherapy is to utilise the brain’s ability to be re-wired and attempt to lessen the effects of the neurological condition through therapy and exercise.

Neurological physiotherapists are experts in treating neurological conditions such as Acquired brain injuries, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Dystonia, Functional Neurological Disorders, Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Vestibular Disorders, and other neurological conditions.
