A chartered physiotherapist who specialises in neurological conditions will help you to move and function better in order to make life easier and more enjoyable. This is achieved by maximising your physical potential by maintaining or increasing specific skills.

  • Stroke / CVA
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Head Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Peripheral Nerve Injuries
  • Guillian Barre Syndrome
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia
  • Ataxia
  • Bell’s Palsy (facial weakness) and many more.

Treatment may consist of:

  • Hands on therapy to facilitate normal movement, including the Bobath approach.
  • Advice & assessment regarding appropriate mobility equipment.
  • Muscle strengthening and stretching exercises.
  • Balance exercises.
  • Splinting or casting (temporary), of joints to assist the use of an arm or leg
  • Guidance and advice to individuals, their families and carers.

Help and advice is always to hand                               

Gill's approach is to think about the individual behind the pain, and so she treats that person. She's an outstanding practitioner, who inspires trust and confidence.

I'm delighted to give a testimonial for Gill Huckett's Hatfield physiotherapy practice, Physio 23. I've been seeing Gill for several years now. I was referred to her, following an episode of bad back pain. After a careful and thorough initial assessment, and physio treatment, Gill also showed me some daily Pilates exercises to do at home, backed up with written instructions – with easy-to-follow pictures! Regular treatments and the exercises helped me to recover well. As my back problem is chronic, I currently see her for maintenance treatments and these have proved to be invaluable.
