Neurophysiotherapy is a specialism within physiotherapy that focuses on the rehabilitation of stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and many other conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord and nerves. After a brain injury, such as a stroke, brain haemorrhage or car accident, the body is unable to grow new brain cells. Recovery is dependent on your brain's ability to re-organise the healthy, un-damaged cells in a functional way, this is called Neuroplasticity. Neurophysiotherapists specialise in facilitating neuroplasticity following a stroke or brain injury, helping the brain make new connections and pathways to promote recovery of body, arm and leg movement.
Neurophysiotherapists are experts at rehabilitation and promoting recovery of function following injury. To achieve this we utilise many different techniques during therapy sessions: from whole body gait re-training and functional arm and hand re-training, to manual muscle facilitation and manual therapy techniques. We also use electrotherapy modalities, such as electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), to assist in a persons recovery. Most importantly, we teach self-management to you and your family, promoting your independence and allowing you to take control of your own recovery.
