Neurological Physiotherapy at Home

Neuro Physiotherapy is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that aims to help people with neurological conditions. With the goal of enhancing functionality and mobility of patients, Neuro Physiotherapy offers treatment and training to people who have suffered physical impairment due to neurological conditions. Numerous neurological disorders such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury and Parkinson’s affect the functioning of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, and can lead to loss of movement, sensation, coordination, and balance. Neurological Disorders can also affect other functions of the brain such as perception, speech, memory, and cognition. Behaviour can also be affected by neurological impairment and eventually these conditions affect one’s overall functioning and reduce their quality of life.

Neuro physiotherapists are expert physiotherapists who have specialized experience and can help treat dysfunctionalities caused by neurological conditions. Their job involves suggesting interventions that can help individuals regain or maintain their maximum movement and functional independence. Neuro physiotherapists use various exercises, skills, and techniques to develop new pathways by using the means of repetition and exercise. Neuro physiotherapists, in close partnership with their team of speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, dietitian, nurses, doctors, etc work with patients to enhance their day to day functions through physiotherapy and better their everyday functionality and mobility.

Who Can Benefit from Neuro Physiotherapy?

Neurological disorders tend to damage the central nervous system, which causes a breakdown of pathways of nerves. This breakdown leads to disruption in the nerves carrying signals from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the muscles and organs of the body. When this neural breakdown occurs, it causes motor deficits, paralysis, tremor and spasm to ataxia or lack of sensation. Anybody who experiences dysfunctionality because of the ineffective signal pathways can benefit from neuro physiotherapy. Any neurological condition that affects a person’s movement or physical ability to do things can be treated using neuro physiotherapy.

What’s The First Neuro Physiotherapy Appointment Like?

At your first physiotherapy appointment, you will have to undergo a physical evaluation and examination, wherein your health history will be taken and various tests will be performed. This is for the physiotherapist to understand your movement, flexibility and posture. Once the physiotherapist has a good understanding of your condition, he/she will give you clinical diagnosis, prognosis, treatment plan, along with short and long-term goals. The physiotherapist  will also explain to you what you should expect going forward and will try to understand your needs, requirements and expectations to make sure that both of you are on the same page about how the treatment will proceed. The physiotherapist will also run you by the risks involved and ask you if you have any questions. This is the best time to bring up any queries, concerns or questions that you might have.  Once all of this is out of the way, your physiotherapy sessions will start according to the decided schedule wherein the physiotherapist will give you therapy based advice along with suggestions and recommendations on how to best manage your condition.

What To Expect Once You Start Neuro Physiotherapy?

The physiotherapy treatment that you receive will be tailor made and customized based on your needs and conditions.The neuro physiotherapist will teach you exercises that you may be required to repeat at home and at the clinic on a daily basis. The exercises will not just help build strength and coordination, but depending on how severe the motor dysfunction is, options like limb positioning or splints may be prescribed by physiotherapists to help with joint recovery. The physiotherapist may also recommend walking frames or specialised wheelchairs, along with offering training to use them. Neurological Physiotherapy will aid with recovery from loss of muscular functions, weakness, less stamina, a decrease in balance, and other physiological problems. Physiotherapy will not just help a patient gain back their movement, strength, balance or coordination but will also enhance their sense of confidence and independence.
