What is Neurophysiotherapy?
Neurological physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of individuals who have neurological conditions or impairments; for example Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke.
At Core Rehab the Specialists Neuro-physiotherapists have over 10 years experience working in the NHS with people with neurological conditions including in hospitals, rehab units and in the community.
First Physiotherapy Appointment
An initial neuro assessment is required to take a detailed history of your condition and any other medical issues you may have. We will also look at your movement patterns, strength, flexability, posture, balance and mobility. This helps us to identify your physical impairments and your goals before your treatment starts, so we can plan and adjust the programme to suit you.
The treatment programme may include strengthening exercises, stretching, postural work, balance exercises and walking practice (gait re-education). We will support these programmes with ongoing advice and education.
The physio assessment will take about an hour and we suggest you wear light and comfortable clothes. Ongoing treatment sessions can be between 45mins to 1 hour.
Physiotherapy assessment and treatments are offered in your own home. We have found this to be the most beneficial to our client’s as you are often more relaxed and comfortable in your own environment.
We predominately cover Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. We may be able to visit you in other areas with an additional cost so please get in touch.
