Neurological Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that specialises in the treatment and management of people who have neurological conditions resulting from damage to the brain and spinal cord or nerves.

Progressive neurological disorders

Pathological conditions characterised by a progressive deterioration in functioning.

Progression maybe gradual over many years or even decades. Or more rapidly over weeks and months. These disorders are likely to affect the individual for the rest of his/her life.

Most common abnormalities

Spasticity

Tremor

Physical therapy has to provide individualised one to one treatment which primarily focuses on restoring function and improving overall quality of life.

Neurological physiotherapy is extremely important for these patients. Without physiotherapy following the first motor symptoms patients risk losing many functions and the ability to perform certain activates.
