A complex nervous system controls all the body parts. Physiotherapists are trained to treat neurological injuries and conditions like a strain to the spine after a car accident, carpal tunnel syndrome, Bell’s Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke and many others. After the assessment, short and long term goals will be planned and discussed. A treatment plan will be established. Typical goals may be to manage or relieve pain, improve balance, coordination and gait. Strength and general mobility are always affected so exercise programs are vital, usually progressive and always long term to improve or maintain function.
Like all bodily injuries, the sooner rehabilitation begins the better the results.
