Central nervous system – Your spinal cord and brain.

Peripheral nervous system – this encomposses autonomic and peripheral nerves.

There are also organs of the nervous system like:

Signs and Symptoms of Nervous System Disorders

What is a neurological disorder? The most common signs and symptoms include:

  • Tingling sensation or loss of feeling
  • Loss of muscle strength or weakness
  • Double vision or problems with vision

What Causes a Neurological Disorder?

The cause can be quite diverse. The brain and spinal cord are insulated by numerous membranes that are vulnerable to pressure or force. There are also peripheral nerves located deep under the skin that can also be damaged.

Even just a small disturbance to a neuron’s structural pathway can cause a neurological disorder.

The most common causes include:

  • Infections
  • Genetics
  • Poor nutrition
  • Trauma or injuries
  • Environment influences
  • Lifestyle-related causes

What Conditions Can Benefit From Neurological Therapy?

Injuries, infections, degenerative diseases, structural defects, can all affect or impair the nervous system. Some conditions that can benefit from Neurologic therapy are:

  • Infections – meningitis, encephalitis, polio, and brain abscesses
  • Trauma to the spinal cord or brain
  • Degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington chorea, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Parkinson disease.
  • Headaches, dizziness, neuralgia, and seizure disorder.

How Does Neurological Physiotherapy Help

It works through a phenomenon called neuroplasticity where your brain is able to form new neural connections that are responsible for movement. Neuro Physiotherapy is different from traditional physiotherapy by taking advantage of this phenomenon to help rewire the brain to learn or relearn tasks and abilities.

This can help a patient with functional neurological disorder relearn to walk, stand, sit, as well as perform daily activities.

The exercises are repeated both in the clinic and at home to ensure muscle tone and function does that deteriorate 

What Is The Difference Between Physiotherapy and Neuro Physiotherapy?

Neurological Physiotherapy is a specialized form of Physiotherapy which specializes in treatment of those with movement problems due to disease or injury of the nervous system.

Neuro Physiotherapy has shown effective in treating:

Neurological Physiotherapy is crucial for those who currently have neurological diseases or injuries. Your spinal cord, brain, and central nervous system control certain movements and sensations. When this area is injured it can cause the death of cells that control certain movements and sensations causing loss of function. Without neuro physiotherapy can cause people to lose the ability to perform many daily activities.

However after a neurological disorder or injury there is a certain period of time when the cells that are not injured in the brain or spinal can learn to control the missing functions with neurological physiotherapy.

What To Expect In Neurological Physiotherapy Treatment

Your Physiotherapist will tailor the treatment based on your goals. They can come to the person’s hospital, can do treatment at the physiotherapist’s office, or even come to your home.

The key is to start physiotherapy for neurological conditions as early as possible. Physiotherapy can help slow down the progressive.

A typical session will balance training, build strength, and stretching. 

The treatment can include balance, strengthening exercises, and stretching. This helps retrain the muscles and the brain to work together.

A Neurological therapy program is designed to meet your individual needs while taking into account your specific problem or disease. 

The goal is to return the patient to the highest level of function and independence possible while improving their quality of your life.

To help you reach these goals neurological therapy may include:

  • Exercise to improve muscle control, gait (walking), and balance.
  • Exercise to retrain the bowel and bladder
  • Help with daily living activities such as dressing, handwriting, cooking, basic housekeeping, eating, bathing, and eating.
  • Activities to improve cognitive impairments such as issues with memory, attention, concentration, and poor judgment.
  • Assistive devices to promote greater independence.
  • Stress and pain management. 
  • Emotion support

How Long Will It Take to Get Better?

It depends on the extent of brain damage/injury also when it started. The earlier you start neuro physiotherapy the better your success rate. Also the willingness of the person to do what’s needed to achieve a successful outcome. Also it’s important that caregivers and family members are engaged in the process to ensure the exercises are performed at home too. This also helps improve the patient’s moral and attitude.
