Damage to your Central Nervous System (CNS), including your brain and spinal cord, means that they messages from your brain are not reaching the affected parts of your body. This can result in loss of movement and sensation, uncoordinated movement, weak and floppy muscles, spasm and tremors.
Some of the conditions that can be treated by our neurophysiotherapist include:
- Stroke (CVA)
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Brain injury
- Parkinsons disease (PD)
- Guillian Barre
- Spinal cord injuries
- Cerebral palsy
Neurophysiotherapy is able to kick-start the message pathways that your brain is struggling to use, to make new pathways through repetitive actions and exercises.
Neurophysiotherapy is used to help improve symptoms such as:
- Difficulties with loss of balance
- Loss of hand and arm or leg and foot function
- Spasticity and pain
