Neurological physiotherapy involves an initial in-depth assessment of your movement capabilities including your sensation, strength, flexibility, mobility, balance and functional capacity. Following a thorough assessment, we will discuss realistic goals and how we might work towards your individual goals.
Rehabilitation aims to enhance neuroplasticity through intensive goal-directed exercise therapy to maximise your strength, flexibility, movement capabilities, walking ability, balance and fitness. Rehabilitation also involves education, carer training, proactive prevention of secondary complications and encouraging long-term activity and engagement.
