Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Damage at any level can cause problems with messages travelling between your brain and your body. This can result in loss of movement, sensation, co-ordination, tight or floppy muscles, spasm and tremor.
Neurological Physiotherapy is designed to help you make new pathways through repetitive actions and exercises. This can lead to a reduction in symptoms and an improvement in function like walking better or being able to use an arm more effectively.
