what is neuro-physiotherapy
Neuro physiotherapy, also known as neurologic physical therapy, is a type of physiotherapy that focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions that affect the nervous system, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological conditions.
Neuro physiotherapists work closely with individuals who have neurological conditions to help them improve their movement, strength, coordination, balance, and overall function. They use a variety of techniques, such as exercises, manual therapy, and modalities, to help the individual achieve their goals.
In addition to improving physical function, neuro physiotherapy also focuses on addressing the cognitive and emotional aspects of living with a neurological condition, such as fatigue management, pain management, and strategies to improve quality of life.
When to work with a physiotherapist
Neuro physiotherapy can be helpful at different stages of recovery, from acute care, subacute and rehabilitation, to long-term management. For example, in the acute stage, the focus may be on preventing complications, such as preventing contractures, maintaining the range of motion and preventing secondary injuries.
During the rehabilitation stage, the focus shifts to retraining movement and improving function, whereas in the long-term management stage, the focus is on maintaining function and preventing complications, such as falls and pressure injuries.
Using tools like assistive technology including exoskeletons can help physiotherapists to adjust and advance treatment options.
