Physiotherapy helps to restore an individual’s movement and function to as near normal as possible after they have been affected by injury, illness or disability.
Neurophysiotherapy is a specialism of general physiotherapy.
Neurophysiotherapists specialise in the assessment and treatment of individuals who have neurological conditions. This means a problem associated with the central nervous system, namely the brain and spinal cord. Due to the complexities of the central nervous system, people with neurological problems can have a variety of problems. These may be muscle stiffness or spasm (commonly called spasticity), weakness of muscle, tremor, problems with sensation etc. These symptoms can lead to problems with everyday activities such as walking, getting dressed and feeding. Neurophysiotherapists are trained in the analysis of ‘normal movement’. This involves knowing how the body moves in ‘normal situations’ and how the biomechanics of the body work to allow efficient movement. They are also experienced in how to manage and treat the problems associated with a neurological injury.
