Physiotherapy Treatment in Gloucestershire

Neurological Physiotherapy

What is Neurological Physiotherapy?

Neurological physiotherapy is the branch of physiotherapy that specialises in the treatment and management of people who have neurological conditions.

This may include conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease or spinal cord injury.

Neurological physiotherapy stimulates the brain to form new message pathways, which the brain finds difficult to do with these conditions,  through repetitive actions and exercises.  Physiotherapists assess these conditions which are essentially disorders of the central nervous system, affecting the brain, nerves and spinal cord.
