NEUROLOGICAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

Neurological physiotherapy is utilised in the case of neuromuscular and nervous system conditions, to restore muscle strength, coordination, balance, function and sensation, while reducing muscle tremors and spasms. Neurological physiotherapists can provide rehabilitation strategies including cognitive training, exercise programs, splinting and provide assistive devices to allow you to achieve your goals.

Common neurological conditions that we treat in physiotherapy include:

  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Huntington's disease
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Traumatic brain Injury/head Injury

caused by problems with the nervous

program to your unique needs

High levels of care and specialised
