Physiotherapy in Neurological Conditions
Neurological physiotherapy is the rehabilitation process for people with neurological conditions. These conditions are problems with the spinal cord, brain, and peripheral nerves. These conditions can cause the affected person difficulties with their physical movements, including balance, range of movement, mobility and muscle strength.
Some examples of neurological conditions are:
Spinal cord injury is the damage to the cells and nerves that receive and sends signals from the brain to the rest of the body.
A stroke happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is reduced or interrupted, which results in brain tissues failing to get oxygen and nutrients.
Traumatic brain injury is a disruption in the brain’s normal functioning due to a blow, jolt, or bump in the head.
Multiple sclerosis is a condition that affects the spinal cord and the brain. This may cause arm or leg movements, vision, balance, or sensation problems.
Parkinson’s Disease is another brain disorder that results in uncontrollable movements, including shaking, stiffness and problems with balance and coordination.
Neurological physiotherapy offers examination and treatment of these conditions and aims to improve the patient’s life through physical means. The treatment process will centre on the condition and the patient’s symptoms.
Neurological physiotherapy’s goal is to rehabilitate, maximise your potential, slow down your physical deterioration, and in the case of children, help them achieve developmental milestones.
After an injury, physiotherapy should commence at the earliest time possible. The reason is that, following an injury, the patient’s muscle movement and strength may be affected, and the muscle weakens or becomes tight with convulsive movements. The injured person may also experience changes in sensation and difficulties with swallowing and speech.
