Often the diagnosis of a neurological condition follows some time of wondering what is wrong. Sometimes even being told that nothing is wrong but later discovering there is. Whatever the circumstances of a diagnosis, such as Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis, there is uncertainty and often anxiety over what the future holds.
Physiotherapy early after diagnosis is extremely helpful, not only as an opportunity for the person with the new diagnosis to be listened to and share any concerns, but also to become better informed about the things they can do to minimise the effects of the condition.
In our experience at heads up!, we find that people are greatly reassured by an early visit to see us following a diagnosis. They have time and space to think about questions they have, to share anxieties with an experienced and well-qualified physiotherapist. One of the reasons neurology is so fascinating is that no two people are the same, and the same condition presents itself differently from person to person.
