Conditions we treat

We treat a broad range of conditions, including:


Acquired brain injury (ABI)

Acquired brain injury is caused by actions that occur after birth which result in brain damage rather than being genetic or a congenital disorder. ABI can result in impairments in cognition which may result in permanent behavioural and emotional problems. The impairments are a result of damage to parts of the brain that are caused by trauma such as head injuries, physical trauma and accidents. As this is a very complex area, no two people present with the same symptoms following the same cause of ABI. Usually as a result of an ABI the person's life can be majorly changed as physical activity and functional movements become more limited.

Stroke

A stroke is described as the interruption of blood flow to the brain due to a clot within an artery. The brain is in constant need of oxygen and when this is impaired and blocked it can result in a stroke. As certain parts of the brain are starved of oxygen, the result can lead to the death of cells and parts of the brain that perform certain functions. This is what leads to the resulting symptoms of a stroke. Immediate treatment is required as it is a medical emergency. The quicker the treatment is performed can make the difference in the rehabilitation of the individual and even with life and death. Strokes can usually be widely avoided if general health is maintained. For further information on how to minimise the risks of a stroke contact one of our specialised neurological physiotherapists.

Multiple sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis occurs when parts of the brain and spinal cord are affected by inflammation, this then leads on to the symptoms of MS. There is no known cause of MS but with various treatments such as physiotherapy the symptoms and progression can be slowed down. Episodes of MS can occur within the first few years but in some cases the symptoms may be permanent leading to disability. MS can affect people in different ways; physiotherapy aims to combat the limiting factors so that functional activities can be performed for as long as possible.

Parkinson's disease (PD)

Parkinson's disease is a long term and persisting chronic disorder that affects the person's movement and coordination. PD is usually developed in individuals over the age of 50. PD is not thought to be hereditary and can affect anybody although it is thought that there is a genetic component attached to the disorder in those that are under the age of 50. The area of the brain that is affected is responsible for sending down messages so that movements can be performed. When the brain cells in this area are depleted this leads to the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Spinal cord Injury (SCI)

The spinal cord originates from the base of the skull and terminates at the lower area of the lumbar spine at the L1 vertebrae. Spinal cord injuries (SCI) are associated with trauma to the spinal cord which can either be complete or incomplete. Depending on the site of injury the symptoms can vary significantly. A complete SCI results in a destruction of the messages needed to provide the body with movements. An incomplete injury results in some movement and sensation below the site of the injury. The spinal cord is a course of nerves that runs through the middle of the back. It is responsible for transmitting signals to and from the body and the brain. A SCI is a medical emergency and treatment is needed as soon as possible to prevent long lasting effects.
