Neuro Physiotherapy is specialised therapy for individuals who have experienced injury to the nervous system which can occur either in the brain, spinal cord or the peripheral nerves to the face, body, arms or legs. This may be due to disease, surgery or accident.
Due to the complexity of the nervous system individuals can present with a significant variation of motor, sensory and cognitive deficits such as; paralysis, poor coordination/balance, spasms/tremors, impaired sense of temperature, pressure or vibration, difficulties with speech, swallow or vision. Some individuals may experience problems with concentration, planning or short term memory. With Neurological disorders caused by illness, accidents or congenital injuries, the neurological pathways connecting the brain and body become disrupted, resulting in the body not functioning ‘normally’.
Motor nerve, sensation and brain patterns can all be affected and the disruption may be temporary or permanent. Medical diagnosis, advice and outlook are often very uncertain. What is certain, is that your body feels and behaves differently and you will be uncomfortable with this.
You may be worried, afraid and angry. Your daily life may be affected adversely. You would like to try and get better, to learn how to manage the changes and to do something positive to improve your situation.

Post Operative Rehabilitation
The success of your surgery depends largely on what you do in the post operative stage. Often, if the post operative stage after orthopaedic surgery is not managed carefully with the help of a physiotherapist, you may continue to experience ongoing problems with stiffness, pain, swelling and general lack of confidence with the limb.
As the area may be swollen and somewhat uncomfortable in the early stages, physiotherapy will help you to regain movement, decrease swelling and strengthen the muscles around the joint.
Your physiotherapist will let you know how and when you can return to normal activities including sport. You will be given an exercise program that is specifically designed to guide you back to your pre operative activity.
Your return to normal activity/ sport will depend on the nature of the surgery and the amount of damage that was present.
