restore your confidence and make movement easier
We are totally committed to providing the highest possible quality neurological physiotherapy treatment. Our team believe everyone deserves the best possible care. We treat everyone as an individual, giving reassurance, guidance and support. Our passion is to help everyone, no matter how challenged or how old. Our goal is to help you move around as easily, freely and confidently as possible.
We have nearly twenty years’ experience working with people who have had strokes and would like to improve their strength and confidence in moving around in all sorts of different situations. If you or a family member has recently had a stroke we often work alongside NHS physiotherapists on optimising recovery. Early intense neurological physiotherapy after a stroke is most effective. At heads up! we’ll work with you on exactly what is important to you – whatever that may be.
has your Mum or Dad just had a stroke?
If your Mum or Dad has had a stroke and are in hospital, you may feel unsure as to what you can do to help. It is important that you talk to them calmly and normally. It is important to assume that they understand everything you say, even if they are unable to converse and even if they aren’t making a lot of sense. Maintain a positive attitude. Reinforce every sign of recovery, no matter how small to encourage them. Stroke recovery takes place over a long period and members of the stroke rehab team offer support both in hospital and in the community.
Stroke happens suddenly and changes peoples lives. Approximately 152,000 people have strokes in the UK each year and more than one million people in the UK are living with stroke (Stroke Association 2013).
“As lead consultant neurologist at Epsom and St. Helier Hospital, St. George’s Hospital and The Royal Marsden Hospital, I have referred patients to heads up! over the last 11 years. In my experience they provide an efficient, excellent and highly skilled service. Feedback from my patients is consistently positive.”
Dr Paul Hart – Consultant Neurologist
Recently I looked through the feedback forms we received from the people who have neurological physiotherapy with heads up!
What I was struck by was the positivity and generosity of the feedback.
People reported the most positive aspects of being treated by our clinical specialist neurological physiotherapists were:
“the feeling of being supported, given confidence and hope, receiving significant pain relief from skilled physio in a caring atmosphere.”
“being treated by a physiotherapist who understands my condition, the listening and understanding, support, encouragement and motivation provided by the high quality physiotherapists.”
“excellent service from start to finish”
We are delighted to have received such enthusiastic and positive comments. It is a real privilege to work with people with movement and balance challenges and to have the time and space to really listen to their stories and tailor treatment for them personally.
