At Mid West Physiotherapy, Limerick, we treat a range of neurological conditions and presentations, including; vestibular conditions, vertigo, dizziness and imbalance. We also treat patients with Parkinsons Disease, plus we offer falls prevention programmes for older people. These Neuro physiotherapy services are delivered by chartered physiotherapist Rachel Allen.
What is involved?
The purpose of neurological physiotherapy is to improve your strength, balance, flexibility and fitness, and optimise your function. It is suitable for patients at all stages of rehabilitation.
The patient will first have a full assessment of their current abilities and specific limitations. Together, the patient and physiotherapist will set goals and develop a treatment programme which is tailored to the patient’s needs and objectives. The programme may include exercise, hands-on and technology-supported treatments that aim to:
Improve strength and muscle endurance
Increase joint and muscle flexibility and range
Improve balance and reduce risk of falls
Reduce tone and spacticity
Improve walking ability
Improve quality of life
Facilitate participation in our community
