Specialist Neurological and Stroke Physiotherapy for Banbury and surrounding areas

I offer specialist neurological physiotherapy and stroke physiotherapy to people in Banbury and surrounding areas.  With over 17 years of experience in neurological physiotherapy I offer a high quality, effective service to people with injury or disease affecting the nervous system. 

 

Philosophy

My philosophy is to help people to get back a sense of themselves, to work on what is meaningful to them, to not only work towards independence but also towards activities that they enjoy. 

I help people to gain confidence in their ability to move and exercise and aim to leave people with a clear plan to continue to work towards and achieve long term goals after physiotherapy has ended. 

We can work together to make the most of your abilities.

What is neurological physiotherapy?

Neurological Physiotherapy is a specialist area of physiotherapy for treatment and management of people with a disorder affecting the brain, spinal cord or nerves.

Neurological physiotherapists have specialised training and experience in treating people with neurological problems and are skilled in assessing the physical and functional difficulties that are related to those problems. 

They have a very hands-on approach to treatment and help re-activate and re-align muscles in order to regain lost movement.  They use exercises to improve strength and fitness or to help prevent or slow down movement loss and maintain independence for as long as possible.  Their treatment is specifically targeted to stimulate the nervous system to reorganise itself in a way that restores movement and function or minimises the impact of the neurological injury on the body.

Neurological physiotherapists have an in depth knowledge of how posture is maintained, how movement is generated and how a neurological disorder affects you.  They also have a good understanding of how speech and cognition can be affected by neurological impairment and are skilled in adapting their treatment to take account of this.
