Cerebral palsy affects every person differently. Specialist neurological physiotherapy can be useful when movement is affected and limits work or leisure activities. We can give you advice on appropriate exercise programmes to improve or maintain movement abilities, and also help you to ease the transition back home to independent living.
Progress with treatment will vary greatly depending on the initial problem and degree of difficulty experienced by you. Regular exercise and gentle stretches may reduce stiffness and improve muscle length, strength and control. Our treatment will help to minimise abnormal patterns of movement and postural asymmetries and re-align and activate appropriate muscles in order to perform functional activities.
We will provide you with a safe and encouraging environment to explore and enhance your movement skills, as well as sourcing the most effective equipment and aids to your individual requirements.
With our tailor-made neurological physiotherapy treatment, we will support and advise with the management of your condition. Services for children with special needs can be intensive and as children become young adults, specialist services become less available. Carers are often daunted by the multiplicity of difficulties encountered by people with cerebral palsy. We see our role as identifying the issues faced by the young person and their family and helping them to address these problems.
