Every patient is an individual. We take the time to assess each patient not only during the initial session, but also throughout the course of treatment to ensure that the program we create is tailored to each patient and their situation.
During initial consultations, we are often asked what areas a Neurological Physiotherapist can work with people with Parkinson’s.
1. Physical mobility: e.g., getting in and out of bed or getting up from a chair.
2. Gait and rotation improvement: strategies to move more easily and increase the pace of gait and rotation exercises, e.g., walking.
3. posture-maintaining the best possible posture through specific and regular stretching exercises and working together to maintain a good range of spinal motion.
4. strength and fitness – exercising the anti-gravity muscles that keep us in an upright position and ensuring that physical activity is sufficient to maintain strength and maintain an optimal fitness level.
Balance and Coordination – understanding which specific activities are most difficult and working on strategies, as well as building strength and confidence to improve balance.
