Neurology

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.

It is always advisable to seek treatment from a neurological physiotherapist as soon as possible. This is to minimise any complications that may occur as a result of your condition.

Your Physiotherapist will be able to help you if you are affected by:

  • Falls
  • Reduced Mobility
  • 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

Lawrence and I have been patients of Gill as a physiotherapist for about seven years and have also attended her Pilates classes for about five years.

As a physiotherapist she has been exceptional. She is highly qualified and has a high degree of clinical proficiency as well as being very caring and sympathetic, which we both find very reassuring. I had surgery on my shoulder after which I was unable to raise my arm properly. With the help of Gill’s treatment my shoulder has recovered 100% of its mobility. Lawrence has had 5 major spinal operations over the last two years and Gill has been invaluable over that time. Between each operation she has maximised his recovery and given him treatment and exercises to minimise muscle wastage. We are confident that with her help he will make a full recovery.

We have both attended her Clinical Pilates classes and have found them extremely helpful. Gill uses the APPI method of Pilates and always ensures that each member of the class only takes any exercise to a level appropriate for them. I now attend two classes each week and would do more if I could.

I have recommended Gill to several members of my family and friends who have all been more than happy with the treatment they have received.
