Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the nervous system. Chartered Physiotherapists are trained to assess and treat neurological conditions. A holistic approach will be taken looking at how the condition is affecting your overall function and quality of life.
The physiotherapist will then aim to retrain your movement pattern, and restore your functional ability within the limits of the condition being experienced. Strengthening and stretching exercises are commonly used as well as electrotherapy which can help muscle stimulation. Advice from your physiotherapist on the best way to move and tips on pacing and relaxation techniques can be really beneficial in coping with a neurological condition.
