About

Neuro-Physical Therapy

Impact Physio & Sports Clinic offers neurological physical therapy for patients who have had or are currently suffering from neurological conditions or injuries. As the brain, spinal cord and central nervous system are all interconnected, they are responsible for controlling the body’s overall command of both movement and sensation.
Following the effects of a neurological injury or disorder, there is a window of time that allows un-injured cells in the brain and spinal cord to regain control over any missing functions. During this time, neuro-physical therapy can help the body regain cognitive function and move correctly, allowing patients to improve their overall quality of life and recover safely.

Neurological Physiotherapy Assessment

A neurological physiotherapy assessment and consultation with our registered physiotherapists will be necessary to ensure the best treatment results. At Impact Physio & Sports Clinic, we recognize that no two patients are the same and that each individual will require distinct treatment to meet their unique needs.
Our main mission is to help each patient restore their range of motion, perform daily activities without difficulty and improve their overall quality of life. Using evidence-based treatments, we allow patients to return to living a normal life and doing what they love without experiencing pain or discomfort.

How It Works

1
Bobath Approach
The Bobath Concept is usually referred to as ‘neuro-developmental treatment’ (NDT). It is based on the brain’s ability to reorganize and recover after neurological insult (neuroplasticity). This approach to neurological rehabilitation is multidisciplinary, primarily involving physiotherapists, but may also include occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.
2
PNF Approach
The PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) method is a holistic approach, where elements of motor development, anatomy, neuro-physiology and kinesiology are used. The basic principle is that movements of the body are the combination of spiral and diagonal patterns. It is in these patterns that muscles function most effectively and naturally.
3
LSVT BIG Approach
An intensive amplitude based exercise program for the limb motor system to help individuals use their body more normally. LSVT BIG Fundamental Treatment concepts include high amplitude exercise training and sensory calibration.

Why Choose Neuro-Physical Therapy?

The nervous system is highly complex. It is responsible for controlling and regulating your body’s overall function – which means that when something goes wrong with it, this can lead to difficulty dealing with overall functions and leading a normal life. Many patients report having difficulty moving, swallowing, speaking, breathing and comprehending information on a daily basis.
As such, receiving timely physical therapy is critical for patients who are suffering from a neurological injury or disease. Decreased activity following a neurological condition can lead to decreased heart rate, lung problems, diabetes and more. Neurological physical therapy can help patients receive proper movement training to regain range of motion and muscle control, ensuring a better outcome for recovery and living independently again.

Which Conditions Does Neuro-Physical Therapy Treat?

Neurological physical therapy is a discipline focused on working with individuals who have a neurological disorder or disease. These include Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, brain injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, and stroke.

Common problems of patients with neurological disorders include paralysis, vision impairment, poor balance, inability to ambulate, and loss of functional independence.

Specific treatment procedures are numerous, including: functional training for activities of daily living; therapeutic exercise; manual techniques such as mobilization and stretching and therapeutic modalities.

Motor control, development, and learning theories focus on the idea that several factors contribute to emergence of motor behavior. These factors include not only the central nervous system (CNS) as the driving force, but also biomechanical, psychological, social, and environmental components.

Teaching and practice of skills under these theories is task-oriented and intermittent versus rote and repetitive. Higher-level learning takes place through problem-solving by the child, rather than by the therapist’s hands-on facilitation. Emphasis is also placed on the importance of family-centred care, transdisciplinary service and treatment in natural environments.

The common goal usually is that functional activity increases and that disability decreases.
Other widely affected groups include women who have gone through menopause and anyone who has recently had abdominal or pelvic surgery. While less common, men also develop issues that can be resolved with pelvic floor physiotherapy. 

Physical therapy cannot cure the primary symptoms of MS (such as weakness, tremors, tingling, numbness, loss of balance, vision impairment, paralysis, and bladder or bowel dysfunction), but therapy can enable you to compensate for the changes brought about by MS. These “compensatory treatments,” as they’re called, include learning about new movement techniques, strategies, and equipment.

Physical therapy can also be very helpful at lessening and even stopping secondary symptoms of MS. A physical therapist can teach you exercises to strengthen and loosen muscles. Many of these exercises can be performed at home. The goal of physical therapy is to improve independence and quality of life by increasing movement and function and relieving pain.

At Impact, we also offer tailor-made neurorehab reconditioning programs for post operative multiple sclerosis patients. We are already involved in successful treatment outcomes for our patients who have had the CCSVI procedure done from various parts of the world.

Physical therapy can help with:

  • Balance problems
  • Lack of coordination
  • Fatigue
  • Pain
  • Immobility
  • Weakness

The effects of SCI depend on the type of injury and the level of the injury. SCI can be divided into two types of injury – complete and incomplete. A complete injury means that there is no function below the level of the injury; no sensation and no voluntary movement. Both sides of the body are equally affected. An incomplete injury means that there is some functioning below the primary level of the injury.

A physical therapy (PT) program can facilitate the restoration of muscle strength, flexibility, improve mobility, coordination, and maintain body functions through exercise. Massage, hydrotherapy, and other modalities can relieve pain.

Gait training may be taught to patients with difficulty walking, which could include teaching the patient how to use assistive devices (e.g., walker, cane). Physical therapy benefits the patient by preventing complications from surgery or illness. 

The overall goal of rehabilitation after a traumatic brain injury is to improve the patient’s ability to function at home and in society in the face of the residual effects of the injury, which may be complex and multifaceted. Therapists help the patient adapt to disabilities or change the patient’s living space and conditions to make everyday activities easier and to accommodate residual impairments. Education and training for identified caregivers who will be involved in assisting the patient after discharge are also critically important components of the rehabilitation program.

Physiotherapy treatment is very important following a traumatic brain injury. It should commence as soon as possible and continue until an individual has reached their maximum potential. Physiotherapy can improve an individual’s quality of life by increasing their independence, mobility and ability to perform everyday tasks.
