What is neurophysiotherapy? As a sufferer of a neurological condition you will come across this term. It simply means physiotherapy applied with specialist regard for the neurological system and how it has affected the body. A neurophysiotherapist will complete a specialist assessment and use a different range of treatment techniques to help address the problems created by neurological conditions. These are conditions which affect the central nervous system, that's the brain and spinal cord.
The problems created by neurological conditions are many and varied. They can include muscle spasms, weakness, tightness and contracture. There can also be postural difficulties, inco-ordination, pain and altered sensation.
Because of the variety of presentations and problems, a neurophysiotherapist will use a tailored approach to treatment after a thorough individual assessment. The assesment will include an analysis of movement and therefore the treatment is likely to involve some movement re-education. Usually a treatment series will also involve advice and exercises for you to continue between sessions.

After years of pain and discomfort and seeing numerous Dr’s, Specialists and Physio’s I’d just about given in to the fact that I’d never be without this pain/discomfort. After just one session with Richard I came away feeling refreshed and hopeful I could be normal again. He recognised my issues almost instantly (which numerous others had missed)and explained everything clearly – a complete breathe of fresh air. I’d have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
