what is neurological physiotherapy

Neurological Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy which aims at treating the physical impairments of patients caused due to neurological conditions. 

When there is some damage or abnormality in your central nervous system, including brain and spinal cord, the messages from your brain do not reach the affected parts of your body. It can result in loss of sensation, impaired and uncontrolled movement, spasm and weak muscles.

Neurological Physiotherapists use various exercises, techniques and therapies to recover function and movement of joints, muscles and tendons of affected patients. 

when do you need neurological physiotherapy?

Any person suffering from a neurological condition that has affected his/her physical ability and movement can be treated using Neuro Physiotherapy. Depending on the specific medical condition, the effects may include tremor, spasm, motor deficits or lack of sensation. 

Some common neuro conditions in physiotherapy include:

  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Traumatic brain Injury/head Injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Epilepsy

benefits of neurological physiotherapy

Improved strength

Training and exercises for muscle movement training will strengthen muscles which have become weak by your condition or injury. Neurological Physiotherapists will focus on increasing range of motion and muscle control. They may also help in treating spasticity, a condition in which muscles continuously contract.

better endurance

Training methods like Gait training and re-training will help you get better endurance. The aim is to make you walk independently and do various types of activities on different surfaces. Depending on the requirement, mobility aids may also be incorporated to help with better posture and ease of movement. 

Better balance

Balance exercises aim to improve your balance, steadiness and confidence in walking and doing regular activities. It will ensure that the fall related injuries are minimized. 

how does neurological physiotherapy work?

Physiotherapy for neurological conditions is planned as per the specific need of each patient. The treatment for a patient requiring small improvements will be different from someone who needs multiple or big improvements. A physiotherapist will do the need analysis during few initial consultations.

The brain has the characteristic of both losing and forming new connections. Physiotherapy in neuro conditions uses various exercises and methods to help the brain to form new synaptic connections. In a way it does rewiring of the brain to learn tasks and abilities.

Physiotherapist may use a number of treatment approaches, few of the common ones include 

  • Stretching
  • Strengthening
  • Joint mobilization
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Balance re-education
  • Gait re-education
  • Postural exercise
  • Spasticity management
  • Fatigue management

In addition to tailored exercises for improving strength and response, Neuro Physiotherapy may also involve use of aids like splints, wheelchair or frame, depending on the severity of dysfunction. 

In most treatments of Neurological Physiotherapy, exercises shown by trained neurological physio are to be repeated on a daily basis to ensure proper recovery of motor function. 

Results of the treatment will depend on the extent of the damage, willingness of the patient to participate in the treatment and how timely the Neuro Physiotherapy starts. Family members and friends of the patient also need to do their part by continuously boosting the morale of the patient.

Physiotherapists also consult you to optimize functionality and movement in your current condition, as well as on methods to modify workplace and home spaces for more safe and independent living.
