A service we offer to clients who have had some sort of neurological event that has impaired their body’s ability to move to function as it did before the event. This is a very intensive form of rehabilitation that often, but not always requires a long time investment on the part of both the practitioner and the client.
At the heart of Neurorehabilitation is the re-training of the brain’s ability to perform and instruct the body to execute functions and tasks it was previously able to do before the neurological event had occurred. Key traits of a physiotherapist treating these kind of conditions are patience, compassion, empathy, good communication skills and a positive attitude.
We believe that involving all the relevant stakeholders, including the family, medical team and the community where appropriate, is integral to the person as a whole. Some of the most common conditions we see at our practice include
- Stroke (cerebrovascular accident)
- Head injuries
- Guillian barre syndrome
- Parkinson disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Demyelinating polyneuropathies
