How can ThreeSpires Physiotherapy help me with my neurological condition?
A physiotherapist will come to your home at a time and day of your choosing – avoiding the need to leave the house and go to a clinic which can be extremely difficult and tiring for many people with neurological conditions. Our neurological physiotherapy service is based in Lichfield and serves anywhere within a 25 minute drive including Sutton Coldfield, Rugeley, Walsall, Tamworth and Cannock.
Due to the complex nature of neurological conditions, the lengthy assessment process and the need for ongoing re-assessment as patients improve each treatment session is 1 hour. It is our experience that this extended period of time allows for a much greater benefit and response to neurological physiotherapy and is especially beneficial for older patients who may fatigue quickly and may need longer rest periods in sessions.
A full subjective assessment (discussion with your physio) will be conducted of your condition, your current and previous mobility and fitness levels and your goals for the future. Your physio will also look at your lifestyle, past medical history, symptoms, aggravating factors, nature of the condition and any risk factors in order to gain a full picture and how best to proceed
A comprehensive physical examination of your posture, strength, range of movement, gait and bio-mechanics will then take place. This will enable us to identify the best rehabilitation strategies and develop an effective treatment plan to alleviate any pain, improve mobility and assist you in returning to full fitness.
Treatment options during the session may include, balance work, strengthening exercises, falls prevention, mobilising practice, joint mobilisation, gait re-education, deep tissue massage and stretching. The appropriate combination of treatment options will be chosen by your physiotherapist and tailored to provide maximum improvement in terms of strength, range of motion, mobility, fitness and reduction in any pain.
Self management is a key part of recovering from or living with neurological conditions and your physio will provide you with an individualised rehabilitation program that is tailored to meet your requirements and goals whatever they may be. Elements included in this program will be: a graded strengthening and exercise program, stretching techniques, balance exercises, postural advice, core strengthening exercises and strategies to re-adapt to normal daily life.
