Physiotherapy

Neurological physiotherapy is a specialist area of physiotherapy. We assess and treat clients with a variety of neurological impairments that result in abnormal movements, weakness or functional loss.  We aim to maximise your potential and improve your quality of life through restorative interventions and teaching you compensatory techniques where required. 

Neurological conditions present themselves in a variety of different ways and it requires specialist assessments to tease out the details and provide you an optimal rehabilitation programme. Because your condition is specific to you so is our assessment and treatment plan.

Assessment

We provide a comprehensive, specialist neurological assessment with you at the centre. We set meaningful goals with all clients and ensure they are measurable so we know what we are doing is effective. If it isn't working for you we will soon know and change our strategy to meet your goals.

Treatment

Treatments are client specific and vary dependent upon what we are trying to achieve. We can use hands on therapy including manual mobilisations and soft tissue work, kinesiology taping and appropriate exercise prescription including pilates based concepts.

follow up

Our goal is to get you living the life you want to lead. We appreciate time is a valuable commodity and the expense associated with private therapy. Therefore we will work within your personal lifestyles to offer appropriate follow up. This can be as frequent or infrequent as you require. Ultimately we hope to get the majority of clients continuing with a programme independently.

Long-term plan

Ideally we would like our clients to leave our clinics satisfied and not requiring further input from us. Some clients may require long-term reviews to continue their progression whilst others with deteriorating conditions may require reviews to address changes in the physical capabilities. Some clients may require ongoing 'maintenance' therapy for prolonged periods. We would happily discuss this with you.

Group Classes

Group Exercise Classes

Often with the support of your peers exercise can seem like a much less daunting task. Group classes are often more financially appealing too, allowing for a longer term commitment. Worried you won’t be able to keep up? Don’t worry we can tailor every class to each individual. 

We are currently developing our exercise classes across Dorset. Want one near you? Use the contact us page to express an interest. 

Group Education Sessions

Our series allows for condition specific education so you can better understand and manage your health. Greater understanding and knowledge can help you inflict positive changes to your lifestyle.

We also offer education series on more general topics such as the benefits of exercise and pain as well as having guest speakers on topics such as nutrition. 

Want to learn more about a specific topic? Drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do.
