What is neurophysiotherapy?
Neurophysiotherapy is a very specific type of physical therapy for those who have sustained a neurological injury from a brain or spinal cord injury, stroke, or a disease process such as multiple sclerosis.
What can neurophysiotherapy do to help you if you have a neurological impairment?
Our neurological physiotherapists:
- Provide one-on-one rehabilitation (we do not treat multiple patients at a time, nor do we use support staff in your therapy)
- Use the latest evidenced-based neurological physiotherapy methods
- Option to treat in private treatment rooms rather than in an open gym area
- Neurological rehabilitation services can be provided in the comfort of your home if necessary
- Do not require a doctor referral (with your consent, we can work closely with your physician and other care providers)
A neurophysiotherapist has a special interest in the treatment of neurological conditions and can help you:
- Re-learn movement patterns
- Facilitate the recovery of balance, sitting, standing and walking
- Stimulate hand movement and help regain arm movement
- Assess the need for walking aids and mobility devices
