What is Neurological Rehabilitation (Physical Therapy)?

In order for your body to move regularly and independently, signals must be carried from your brain to the area in question. These signals move between your central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system to have the desired effect. When damage occurs in the CNS, these signals do not reach their target areas. Our team uses special neurophysiological techniques, transmitting the signals that make these movements possible again, and maximizes your mobility.

While results will vary based on your condition and prognosis, by routinely receiving our Harmony neurophysiotherapy services, you can help ensure the correct transmission of neural signals. Your neurons can regrow, but they do so at a slower rate than your other body tissues. Harmony Neurological Physiotherapy uses repetitive movements and exercises to create new pathways.

How Do Your Neurological Physiotherapy Services Work?

If you choose to use our Harmony Neurological physiotherapy services, your first session will include a full assessment of your condition. Following this initial assessment, we will work with you to establish personal goals. Our Physiotherapists understand that each person who comes to Concentric Rehabilitation seeks different results. From your first appointment, we will work with you to achieve your desired goals.

Each Neurophysiotherapy session is conducted by a professional trained in Neurological Physiotherapy. In each session, they will monitor your progress and realign your goals accordingly. You may be asked to do repetitive exercises at home, which will maximize your chances of success.

Examples of Neurological Conditions

Brain Bleeding - Clots to the Brain Strokes are a very common cause of neurological dysfunction. They can be caused by any of a wide variety of factors, but what mainly happens is that blood flow to the brain is blocked, resulting in increased damage to brain tissue the longer the affected area is deprived of the oxygen and nutrients carried by the blood. Depending on where the injury occurred, loss of mobility, temporary paralysis, or difficulty with speech or coordination may occur.

Brain damage - Your brain controls every aspect of your being, including motor skills and coordination. It has a remarkable capacity for healing, but depending on the extent of the injury, an integral part of this healing process is a physical therapist. The occurrence of any brain injury is highly variable depending on which areas of the brain are affected and can include a range of motor dysfunctions.

Cerebral Palsy – CP is actually an umbrella term to describe a number of different motor conditions that cause disabilities in terms of motor function. The cerebrum is affected in these conditions and is damaged during brain development at any point between pregnancy and age three. These disorders tend to present with a variety of symptoms, such as postural and movement difficulties, which are of concern to the physical therapist. Other diagnostic symptoms include perceptual difficulties and problems with communication.

Chronic pain – The causes of chronic pain are many, but whatever the cause, its persistence is extremely low. Where conventional pain relievers fail, a physical therapist can isolate the cause of your pain and treat it using a range of techniques at their disposal, including medical massage, acupuncture, mobilization, hydrotherapy or electrotherapy.

Dementia - Dementia is a disease that affects more and more people in the country as the population of elderly people increases. One of the unpleasant effects of dementia, a degenerative disorder of the brain, is loss of coordination and motor function. A physical therapist can assess exactly where you need help (important as this will affect everyone differently). They do their best to improve both your overall health and independence. They will do this both by offering exercises to increase your range of motion and by evaluating your home environment and adjusting it to your needs.

Parkinson's disease – Parkinson's is a deficiency of a certain neurotransmitter called Dopamine that leads to the gradual degeneration of a part of the brain.

Substantia Nigra - This results in a tremor that worsens as the disease progresses, causing loss of fine motor control and coordination. Physiotherapy can be helpful in these areas.

Spinal Cord Injury – Spinal cord injuries can lead to the paralysis probably the best known and most feared consequences. Your spinal cord, along with the brain, makes up your central nervous system, which is responsible for transmitting messages from the brain to where they need to go in the body. While physiotherapy is vital for restoring lost functionality after spinal cord, how successful they are depends on the extent of the injury and symptoms.

MS (Multiple Sclerosis) - Gullian Barre - Neuropathy and all other neurological disorders

The Most Appropriate Method Neurophysiotherapy

In Neurological Rehabilitation, we know that it is not always appropriate to attend our clinic for your Neurophysiotherapy session. We work to provide mobile services to our customers when necessary. As a result, you don't have to worry about not being able to access neurological physiotherapy when mobility restrictions prevent you from leaving your home.
