Neurological rehabilitation is an element of rehabilitation focused on optimising movement and function of individual joints, muscles and the body as a whole. It deals with impairment of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems and all effector tissue. This includes the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles
Many conditions occur suddenly such as
Spinal cord injury
Traumatic brain injury
Post excision of brain tumour
While some become progressively worse over time
Motor Neuron Disease
Charcot-Marie Tooth Disease
Each neurological condition presents with a unique combination of symptoms which allow and prevent a vast range of functional abilities. We work with you by discussing your goals, what you want to get out of physiotherapy then provide you with exercises, tasks, advice and assist in equipment prescription to help you reach your full potential.
Many people under the age of 65 can also access these supports through the NDIS.
