NEUROPHYSIOTHERAPY

 

NEURO PHYSIOTHERAPY

 

Treatment is dynamic, task orientated and meaningful and we can help with improvement long after injury. If you have difficulty getting to the clinic we can visit you at your home, residential or nursing home.

What It Helps

Patients can be treated at home removing the need to travel to the clinic.

Conditions seen include:
Stroke, Multiple sclerosis, Motor Neurone disease, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, Head injury & Stroke rehab

Treatment is specific to you, and may include stretching, strengthening, balance and walking practise, postural awareness and control. We can give advice on suitable walking aids, home adaptations, equipment and seating. The majority of patients are seen once or twice a week and complete a home exercise programme between treatment sessions. We are able to provide intensive daily physiotherapy or maintenance physiotherapy of one or two treatment sessions a month.

We are a regional specialist centre for SaeboFlex® and SaeboStretch® splints.

SAEBOFLEX

The Saebo Arm Training Programme using the dynamic SaeboFlex® splint has been shown to improve the affected arm and maximise arm and hand function after a stroke. The latest research shows that the majority of stroke survivors end up not using their involved arm. This can lead to soft tissue shortening, pain and obvious frustration.

Stroke survivors who are most appropriate for this programme are those who are unable to open their hands due to spasticity and those who can extend their fingers but are too weak to use them further.

To start the programme you will need to be able to:
Stand for 5 minutes
Have some movement of shoulder and elbow

If you have been discharged from therapy because you have reached a plateau consider SaeboFlex®.

Call us for further information if required.

SAEBOSTRETCH

The clinic can also fit SaeboStretch®. We have found the single most limiting factor to regaining hand function following a stroke, besides the severity of the stroke, is soft tissue shortening of the fingers and this has been a challenge for therapists since the first splint was fabricated.

How is the SaeboStretch® different?
The SaeboStretch® has a series of slots and cut-outs that ensure an intimate fit that keep the fingers right where you want them and prevents joint damage with a new strap design.

Call us if you require further information.
