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.
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.
