An In-Depth Look at Neurological Disorders We Treat

Our clinic provides a comprehensive approach to neurological physiotherapy, treating a wide range of conditions that affect the nervous and neuromuscular systems. The unique complexity and adaptability of the human nervous system require a specialized approach, which we are well-equipped to deliver.

We approach each patient's care plan diligently, creating personalized strategies to improve the overall quality of life and enhance their functionality.

Tailored Treatment Approach

The precise nature of neurological physiotherapy treatments will always depend on the needs and limitations of the patient. After a thorough examination, our skilled physiotherapists will develop a personalized treatment plan to help regain function, improve mobility, increase strength and coordination, manage pain, and enhance quality of life.

We use various specialized neurological physiotherapy techniques in the treatment plan. The choice of method depends on the individual’s condition, needs, and goals. Here’s a brief introduction to some of these techniques:

  • Bobath Concept (NDT): This approach treats patients with neurological conditions and aims to improve sensory-motor processing, muscle control and coordination by eliminating compensatory habits and promoting new learning of efficient movement patterns.

 

  • Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF): This technique uses the body’s proprioceptive system to facilitate muscular response. It involves stretching and contracting targeted muscle groups to improve muscular strength and flexibility, thus enhancing the range of movement.

 

  • Motor Relearning Program (MRP): The MRP technique involves relearning lost skills and using residual abilities. The focus is on practice and positive reinforcement, helping patients regain control over their motor functions.

 

  • Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT): Often used with stroke patients, CIMT involves restraining the unaffected limb, forcing the use of the affected one, thereby improving its function.

 

  • Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES): A technique that employs the application of minor electrical impulses to induce movement in individuals suffering from paralysis or substantial weakness.

 

  • Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT): A unique therapy form specifically designed to mitigate the direct and indirect issues associated with vestibular disorders. Primarily an exercise-centric program, it aims to diminish vertigo, dizziness, gaze instability, imbalance, and occurrences of falling.

 

  • Virtual Reality Therapy (VRT): This approach incorporates technology to create a simulated environment. It offers a fun and motivating way to work on mobility and balance issues.

Harnessing Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections, which form the foundation of our rehabilitation programs. We design interventions that utilize this unique characteristic of the brain to help patients regain lost functions or learn new ways of performing tasks.
