Neurology Physiotherapy

Neurology Physiotherapy

Neurology Physiotherapy is the treatment of patients who have neurological disorders and impairments such as Stroke (Traumatic Brain Injury), Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury and Parkinson's disease.

The nervous system is complex, and there exists no common therapy for such disorders.

Based on the diagnosis, and the current situation, comprehensive and customized exercise therapy is designed, which includes rehabilitation, management and guidance pertaining to the neurological issue.

The objective of neurological physiotherapy is to enable the patient to carry on his/her daily activities without any hassle or pain. The physical therapy for neurological disorders can include: posture awareness, strengthening of muscles, stretching exercises, sitting balance, standing balance, education, training, and walking practice.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease, which damages the nerves. Patients with Multiple sclerosis experience consistent numbness and tingling, weakness, extreme muscle pain and in some cases, vision problems as well.

Multiple sclerosis is described as a progressive neurological disorder: In some patients, it can be very aggressive, and quick, while in some patients, all the symptoms may take some time to emerge.

When it comes to Physiotherapy, then there are several exercises and physical therapies which can improve the prevailing conditions of Multiple sclerosis.

Exercises such as muscle strengthening and stretching are recommended. Gait improvement is also done, and the patients are taught and trained to maintain mobility, and prevent muscle spasms. Mobility aids such as cane, walker or wheelchair are also provided, and taught how to use them.

Poliomyelitis or Polio, is an extremely infectious disease which is caused by the poliovirus. It mainly affects children who are below 5 years of age, and attacks the central nervous system via the brain.

Often, lower bodies of the patient are partially paralyzed, which leads to a condition called infantile paralysis.

Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in the rehabilitation of patients with Poliomyelitis. Patients who are suffering from muscle paralysis can benefit from PROM or Passion Range of Motion. Splinting of joints prevents contracture and joint ankylosis.

At the same time, Chest physical therapy per CPT prevents pulmonary complications, such as atelectasis.

Depending on the existing condition, and the history of the patient, proper physiotherapy exercises can be recommended and implemented.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury or SCI happens when the patient’s spinal cord is damaged due to an accident, sporting injury, a several fall or as an aftermath of a neurological disease such as Polio, Spinal Bifida or Transverse Myelitis.

The actual damage to the spinal cord can be due to:

  • • Severing, which can be total or partial
  • • Crushing/compression
  • • Overstretching or tearing

Note here, that a broken back or neck is not a spinal cord injury. A broken back or neck can be a result of fracture of one or more than one vertebrae that can or cannot lead to spinal cord injury.

With proper and timely Physiotherapy, the problems which arise due to spinal cord injury can be mitigated. The road to recovery can be optimized and the patient will be able to maintain daily chores and activities without any external help. Stretching activities, strengthening exercises, breathing exercises, Balance and posture exercises can be employed to get the best results.

Stroke happens when the critical blood supply to the brain is suddenly interrupted, and/or blood vessel in the brain bursts, which results in spilling of blood into surrounding brain cells.

There are two types of strokes: An Ischemic Stroke, which is the blockage of blood vessels which supplies blood to the brain and a Haemorrhagic Stroke, which is bleeding into or around the brain.

Depending on the severity of the stroke, there are 3 conditions of stroke:

Hemiplegia: Caused by brain damage or spinal cord injury, this condition of stroke leads to paralysis on one side of the body.

Paraplegia: Due to severe damage of nervous system and spinal cord, this condition of stroke leads to paralysis of lower limbs.

Quadriplegia: This the most severe condition of stoke, wherein all 4 limbs of the patient are paralysed.

With proper and timely physiotherapy, patients with stroke can improve their walking, improve their movement of arms, reduce post-stroke shoulder pain, reduce spasticity in limbs and muscles and other benefits.

Facial Palsy

Facial Palsy is a neurological disorder, wherein facial nerve is partially or completely damaged. Due to this, the patient may lose facial movement, and the facial muscles appear weak.

The patients may not be able to close their eyes, move their lips, their face may appear to droop at one side and more.

Depending on the severity of the cases, Neuromuscular Physiotherapy can be used to give relief to the patient, and improve the prevailing conditions. Methods such as Neuromuscular Retraining (NMR); Electromyography (EMG), Trophic Electrical Stimulation and others can be employed.
