A little bit about Neurological Physiotherapy
So, how can Neurological Physiotherapy make a real difference in your life? Our brains are dynamic – they thrive on adaptation, always ready to rewire themselves in the face of challenges. Our skilled Neurological Physiotherapists have a deep understanding of your nervous system and its role in your movement and daily function. Our mission is to empower you to maintain vitality, strength, and the ability to engage in activities that light up your life.
Our team of Therapists is well-versed in the innovative Bobath Concept, a comprehensive approach that delves into the assessment and treatment of neurological conditions. We’re also rooted in Clinical Neuroscience, staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in rehabilitation science. But here’s the key – we don’t rely on one-size-fits-all formulas. Instead, we approach your unique situation as a puzzle, analyzing how your nervous system works and pinpointing areas for improvement.
We put the spotlight on elements like posture, tailored movements, harmony in coordination, and how your senses play a role in your daily function. Each session is designed around you and your personal aspirations.
Wondering if these services are right for you?
