An initial neuro-physiotherapy assessment is required to help identify your hopes and goals as well as to determine your current level of physical activity and function. Then we discuss solutions for supporting our clients with a programme to optimise independence with physical activities. Getting the right advice is important for self-management and prevention of secondary complications that can occur with long-term neurological conditions.

Osteoarthritis
read moreHip pain, knee pain and joint stiffness due to osteoarthritis, can leave people feeling irritable, tired and deprived of enjoyment of the things they like doing. Knee arthritis is the leading cause of disability among older adults and affects more than 4.5 million adults in the UK. In some cases the pain and reduced mobility caused by osteoarthritis may be severe enough to need joint replacement surgery. The number of hip replacements and knee replacements has increased dramatically over the last decade while the average age of people receiving joint replacements is now younger.
