Neurological physiotherapy is the branch of rehabilitation medicine that deals with conditions affecting the nervous system. People who have had stroke, multiple sclerosis, Guillain Barre Syndrome and many others remain with some impairments even if they have been "healed". These impairments can be addressed via functional retraining, learning new and compensatory techniques and making sure that the impairments are not leading into more complex cormobidities.

If you had a stroke, you might be having problems with sitting, walking, using one side of your body, swallowing, talking and many more. A neurological physiotherapist will help you recover and learn how to optimally function in your environment.

A neurological physiotherapist also helps children with cerebral palsy, Down's Syndrome and many other conditions. Read more below:
