Stroke and neurological rehabilitation

People with neurological conditions such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and traumatic brain injury can now continue and progress their rehabilitation at Kingsley Studio.  Following neurological (brain and spinal) injury or disease people often have difficulties with

    • muscle weakness

neuro

  • reduced balance and coordination
  • muscle tightness
  • pain
  • altered walking
  • performing everyday tasks
  • loss of fitness

 

Physiotherapy for people with neurological conditions applies the principles of neuroplasticity. This utilises the brain’s ability to ‘rewire’ itself according to experiences, challenges and repetition. A neurological physiotherapist has skills to assist you to select an appropriate functional challenge and provide feedback and assistance to practise and improve your performance.

 

Additionally, it is important to address any muscle weakness or tightness to make movement easier and stronger. Balance and fitness training are important components in neurological rehabilitation. Integrating these correctly is vital to optimise patient outcomes.

 

Kingsley Studio offers small group (2-4 people) neurological physiotherapy. Following a comprehensive 1:1 neurological physiotherapy assessment, treatment goals are set and therapy is tailored to provide the ‘just right’ experience to optimise fitness, function and independence.
