Neurological

Written by David and Jo Bradbrook

Neurological physiotherapy is the treatment of patients who have a neurological disorder. Neurological disorders are those affecting the brain, spinal cord and nerves. As musculoskeletal physiotherapists we are dealing with the nervous system all the time. We are very skilled in the assessing of the function of your nerves, from when they leave the spinal cord and along their pathway through the body. There are many neurological conditions that require a specialist neurological physiotherapist. Who are experienced in treating patients with conditions such as Motor Neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Dementia. We do not offer this service at WPB, but we may be able to advise you of a local specialist who can help.
