Neurological physiotherapy is a specialised area of physiotherapy for patients with a problem associated with the brain, spinal cord or nerves; such as stroke, MS and Parkinsons disease.

People with neurological conditions may have difficulties with mobility, muscle strength, range of movement and balance. Neurological conditions can also cause symptoms such as muscle stiffness or spasm, muscle weakness or tremors which in turn cause problems with everyday tasks such as eating, walking and dressing. Neurophysiotherapists at Aigburth Physiotherapy are trained in analysing a person’s normal range of movement and how the body goes about achieving this, while managing and treating the problems associated with neurological injury.
