Neuro Physiotherapist

Neuro physiotherapy is a specialized area of physiotherapy that targets conditions related to the nervous system. It focuses on assisting individuals who have suffered from neurological disorders or injuries, such as stroke, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, among others. Neuro physiotherapists employ a variety of techniques to enhance movement, balance, and coordination, aiming to improve patients’ quality of life. By tailoring rehabilitation programs to each person’s specific needs, they work to restore function, reduce symptoms, and increase independence in daily activities. This form of therapy plays a pivotal role in the recovery process, helping patients navigate the challenges associated with neurological conditions.



    Those with abnormalities of movement and function resulting from issues with the nerve and neuromuscular systems of the body are treated with neurological physiotherapy. Muscle weakness, tremors, uncontrollably spasming muscles, poor balance and coordination, loss of function, and diminished feeling are common symptoms of these disorders. Through repeated activities and exercises, neurological physiotherapy can help your brain create new communication routes that it is having trouble using. Numerous people who get neurological physiotherapy report improvements in symptoms including pain, stiffness, walking difficulty, loss of hand, arm, or leg function, and balance issues. Through this approach, the handicapped person is primarily involved in creating plans and establishing objectives that are significant and pertinent to their unique situation.


    Neurorehabilitation offers a range of therapies that address a patient's functional independence and overall well-being. These include medication management, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological counseling, speech and swallow therapy, and teaching or retraining patients on mobility skills, communication techniques, and other daily routine aspects. In addition, neurorehabilitation emphasizes the nutritional, psychological, and artistic aspects of an individual's healing process.

    Numerous neuro-rehabilitation programs, whether provided by hospitals or at private, specialty clinics, have a broad range of specialists in numerous domains to give patients the most comprehensive care possible. Over time, and frequently throughout a person's lifetime, these therapies enable the patient and their family to have the most normal, independent lives possible.


    The ways in which the disorders treated by neurological physiotherapy impact the nerve system are distinct. Nonetheless, the diagnosis' limitations are comparable. For patients with poor balance and coordination, gait problems, eyesight abnormalities, inability to walk, and difficulty with self-care and daily living tasks, doctors suggest neurological physiotherapy.

    Microcephaly: Microcephaly is an uncommon neurological illness that causes an infant's head to be smaller than that of other children of the same age and gender. The abnormal growth of the brain causes microcephaly, which can develop during pregnancy or after delivery. It may develop later in infancy or be a congenital disorder (existing from birth). It frequently results in neurological disorders and learning impairments.

    Post-polio syndrome. (Poliomyelitis sequelae, or PPS), is a collection of poliomyelitis (polio) latent symptoms that occur at a rate of around 25 to 40% (last data more than 80%). Following the first infection, it is a viral infection of the nerve system. Usually, 15 to 30 years after the first severe paralytic episode, symptoms start to manifest. Reduced muscle function or sudden weakness accompanied by discomfort and exhaustion are some symptoms. Years following an infection with non-paralytic polio (NPP), the same symptoms may also manifest.

    Guillain–Barre syndrome (GBS): GBS is a rapidly developing muscular weakness brought on by immune system damage to the peripheral nerve system. Changes in feeling or discomfort, usually in the back, combined with muscular weakness are usually the first signs. These usually start in the hands and feet and frequently extend to the arms and upper torso, affecting both sides.

    Stroke: When there is a restriction in blood flow to the brain, brain cells die. The affected area of the brain produces symptoms.

    Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): Damage to the brain brought on by a blow, bump, or unexpected shock to the head.

    Parkinson’s disease: Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative condition that mostly affects the brain's dopamine neurons. The illness impairs intellect, mobility, and sleep.

    Alzheimer's disease: A neurodegenerative condition that results in the degeneration of brain cells. Dementia is a deterioration in thinking, behavior, and memory caused by a loss of brain cells.

    Spinal Cord Injuries: A sophisticated network of nerves runs from the brain via the spine. Force applied to the spinal column's ligaments, discs, or vertebrae prevents neurons from interacting with the body when a spinal cord injury takes place. A spinal cord injury results in function loss below the location of the damage. They may feel weak, lose feeling and strength, breathe more difficultly, or lose control over their bowels or bladder.

    Multiple Sclerosis (MS): In MS, the central nervous system's neurons are harmed by the immune system. Myelin, the layer that protects nerves, is broken down by the immune system. Depending on which nerves are damaged, different symptoms apply.

    Cerebral Palsy: A developmental condition known as cerebral palsy is characterized by motor impairment, or the inability to move and maintain balance and posture. Because of aberrant brain development, people with cerebral palsy are unable to regulate their muscles.

    Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT): CMT is a hereditary nervous system condition that results in a gradual decrease of muscle mass due to peripheral nerve injury. It is also known as motor and sensory neuropathy caused by inheritance.

    Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): Motor neurons are impacted by the neurodegenerative condition known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Voluntary movement disappears with the death of motor neurons.

    Chronic Pain: Conditions characterized by persistent pain, such as back pain, may be primary or related to other neurological illnesses. Patients start neurological physiotherapy for their chronic pain for several reasons, one of which being the impact on their quality of life.


    Through therapeutic exercises and activities, neurological rehabilitation physiotherapy stimulates the nervous system and teaches you new movement patterns. Plans for treatment are specific to your illness or injury and concentrate on enhancing mobility, balance, strength, cardiovascular health, and general coordination. Physiotherapists offer advice on how to adapt work and home environments for safe, effective, and independent living in addition to helping you maximize functioning in your current state.

    Benefits may include:

    Increased strength: The purpose of muscular movement training is to fortify muscles that have been compromised by an illness or accident. Increasing muscular control and range of motion, as well as treating or reducing spasticity—the condition in which muscles contract repeatedly-are areas of attention for physiotherapists.

    Long-term endurance: Re-training or gait training can help you create simple and efficient plans for walking on various surfaces, on your own, and for a range of activities. Mobility aids are sometimes included to help with ease of movement, balance, and posture. One of the physiotherapy treatments might be to educate the right way to use these tools.

    Improved balance: Walking and other everyday activities may be made more steady and confident with the help of balance training. Enhancing balance reduces the risk of falls and the damage they cause.
