Neurological physiotherapy can be used to help reduce spasticity which may help to relieve associated pain and allow active movement to become easier. Treatments may include facilitation techniques, home exercise programmes, splinting alongside occupational therapists, hydrotherapy and advice regarding Botulinum Toxin.
We have close links with a specialist occupational therapist and can provide an integrated spasticity management service if this is required.
We offer hydrotherapy in a fully accessible pool. Exercising in water can help to reduce spasticity, reduce pain, increase independence of walking, improve balance, increase muscle strength and stamina. Often people can achieve activities in the water that are not possible on dry land. This can provide a confidence boost and lead to improvements in your abilities in every day activities. You do not need to be able to swim to benefit from hydrotherapy.
