The stroke which can affect/ occur in different parts of the body results in poor muscles, loss of neural equilibrium. Neurological physiotherapy involves the treatment of people with movement and function disorders that have originated from problems within the body’s nervous and neuromuscular system.

These conditions often manifest themselves as muscle weakness, poor balance and coordination, reduced working and sensation in many parts of the body, uncontrolled muscle contractions and vibrations.

Common neurological conditions include:

  • Functional Neurological Disorders like weakness, loss of movement, blackouts and sensory symptoms
  • TIA, CVA or seizure(stroke)
  • injuries related to upsetting brain and spinal cord
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease

Our team of highly trained specialist physiotherapists are experts in the treatment of all neurological conditions including Stroke, Head Injuries, Spinal Cord Injuries, MS, Parkinson’s.

At the first consultation we assess and create personal goals. Fitsio+ recognizes that everybody’s goals are different. They can be anything form walking, driving to visit friends or family, returning to work or taking up sport again.

Physiotherapy sessions are carried out by specialist Neurological Physiotherapists, a Therapeutic Exercise Instructor or Physiotherapy assistant, either individually or in a group exercise class. A comprehensive assessment establishes individual needs and recommendations for the future treatment. Following the initial assessment we can also advise whether there is a need to seek further assessments such as occupational therapy (available on-site at our Northampton Clinic) or speech therapies.
