Neurological physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that is dedicated to the treatment of alterations and injuries caused by involvement of the central or peripheral nervous system and that affect movement.
Neurological physiotherapy focuses its activity on improving the patient’s mobility. To do this, it creates new neurological routes and reinforces existing ones so that movement can take place. Thus, it will treat the different motor disorders affected by an injury to the Central Nervous System (CNS). These can be caused by trauma, a certain disease or as a result of a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).
Neurological physiotherapy involves the treatment of people with movement and function disorders because of problems within the body’s nervous and neuromuscular system. For example:
Cerebral palsy. Hemiplegia. Degenerative diseases of the nervous system. Spinal cord injuries. Alzheimer disease. Multiple sclerosis. Cerebral infarction. Parkinson. ALS, Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA), Facial paralysis.
