I have a diagnosis or am under the care
of a Neurologist

I have a Neurological condition. How can Physiotherapy help me?

Neurological Physiotherapy is a specialist area of Physiotherapy.

If you are experiencing difficulties with movement or functional tasks as a result of your condition, or are newly diagnosed and would like to become more active but don’t know where to start, we can help you begin to address your need.

We might suggest a course of 1:1 or group sessions with one of our services but sometimes we will be able to simply guide you with information and physical activity coaching. We believe that you are the expert in knowing and managing what matters to you and therefore we will decide together what the purpose of your sessions will be and how we will measure progress in a way that is meaningful to you.

In order for our guidance to be effective, you will need to commit to the recommended physical activity and working towards the agreed targets between sessions. Please consider whether you are ready to commit to this before referring yourself.

We do not offer continuous Physiotherapy. We aim to equip you with the skills to keep yourself active, to continue working towards your goals, and know how to set new goals whilst you live alongside your condition.  We remain accessible for your future needs through our Self-referral system.

You may be able to help yourself. Have a look out our Self-help pages before you refer yourself as you might find the answer for yourself or be able to get started on something before you see us.

What sort of conditions can you help with?

The most common conditions we treat are Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s, but we are here for you
whatever your neurological condition.
