Neurological and Elderly Rehabilitation
Those with frailty and falls
Conditions we treat:
What to expect:
Those who are frail and elderly or suffering with a neurological condition often find it more difficult to get out and about as they used to. For this reason I visit you in the comfort of your own home, travelling to those in and around Oxfordshire and surrounding areas. I take a detailed clinical history, using this information to allow me to build up a clear picture and create a personalised treatment plan aimed at achieving the functional goals that matter to you.
Benefits of Neurological and Elderly Rehabilitation:
Physiotherapy can be of significant benefit to those with a neurological impairment, with common treatments centring around reduced balance, muscle strength and co-ordination as well as fatigue management, gait re-education and re-educating normal movement patterns. A wide range of treatment techniques are used within neurological rehabilitation. Although these treatment options can vary between patients, these often encompass a hands-on approach and are always tailored to your specific needs, aiming to optimise your independence and support you in getting back to your normal activities as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Physiotherapy can also be of significant benefit to elderly individuals, particularly those suffering with falls. As we age our bodies inevitably get weaker and our balance reduces. These key factors can impair your mobility and leave you at increased risk of falls. With age our bone density can also reduce, meaning an increased risk of injury if a fall occurs. Physiotherapy plays a key role in optimising your strength, balance, mobility and overall fitness levels in order to optimise your independence and reduce your falls risk.
