Physiotherapy - Neurological service

Who do we treat?

We provide specialised rehabilitation for people aged 16 and over with a wide range of neurological conditions and for people with dizziness (vestibular) problems.

This includes conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), stroke, head injury, Parkinson's Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, Huntington's Disease, spinal injuries, vestibular conditions and all other neurological diagnosis.

Your treatment

We will conduct a specialised assessment to determine your problems and goals so we can provide a rehabilitation programme tailored to your needs.

As part of your treatment, you will be asked to follow an exercise and self-management programme at home, which will be specific to your needs and ability.

We will work with you to achieve your maximum level of function, independence and quality of life.

This may include managing associated problems that are related to living with longer-term neurological conditions.

We ask patients to take regular exercise at a level suitable for you.

It is important for your general good health but also helps with your strength, flexibility, balance, prevention of falls and managing fatigue.

We run a special exercise group to help people with neurological conditions to start to exercise.

We also run a group for people who have been newly diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis which aims to give you the information you need to help you manage their condition.

We work in partnership with other organisations including health, social and leisure services and other agencies including charities to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
