What is Neurological physiotherapy?
Who does Becky Robins Neuro Physiotherapy work with??
Where does assessment and treatment take place?
We assess people in their own home, which can include people who live in residential or care home. We do this as we know that travel can make people tired and also is very time consuming, however we feel that seeing people in their own home allows our therapists to problem solve with you on how to make life easier for you in your own environment. For example if getting in and out of bed is difficult it makes sense to practice techniques to help you on your own bed and not on a plinth. We are able to also help you in your work place and also use local gym/swimming pools.
We have an array of equipment that we bring to your home to make treatments fun, exciting and individually tailored to you, such as gym balls, wobble cushions, strength bands and weights but sometimes the best equipment is the things that you use everyday in your home such as your mug, kettle and stairs.
What happens at the initial assessment?
At your initial assessment we look at how you are moving, your strength, fitness levels, posture, coordination and sensation. We will also look at how you manage everyday functions such as walking, getting in and out of bed or how you manage the stairs for example. We will discuss what you want to get out of physiotherapy, what your Goals are. We will then talk openly and honestly about what we found out about your movement and how our physiotherapy treatment and approach would help you and recommend a physiotherapy program tailored to individual needs.
After the assessment do I need to commit to a physiotherapy programme?
How often do you see people?
Our team can offer you flexibility with treatment times and we aim to offer times that are convenient for you.
What does treatment normally involve?
The type of treatment that will be recommended depends totally on your individual symptoms and issues that you are facing at that time. We often look at movement re-education, improving your posture, core, balance, strength and fitness so that you can move better, get stronger and do more for yourself with an array of tools.
You may need
- hands on therapy to facilitate your movement patterns so that you can move more effortlessly and or improve your walking
- Walking re-education
- equipment such as wobble boards, gym balls, strength bands or weights
- electrical stimulation to improve muscle strength or foot drop
- Yoga or thi-chi type based exercises
- High Intensity Training and neurofit to improve your fitness levels and ultimately get you moving better and doing more.
Often treatment is a mixture of the above and is normally paired with a home exercise programme that you complete in between your sessions. We aim to make our treatments challenging and innovative but most importantly fun, we want to engage you and motivate you in order to get the results that you are looking for.
