Neurological Conditions

Rehabilitation for Persons with Neurological Conditions

You can be referred by your GP or you can refer yourself to Back in Motion for specialist rehabilitation following an illness, surgery, or brain injury; or from changes in a long-standing health condition.

We can develop programmes for strengthening and stretching, balance and walking retraining that you can carry out independently, with supervision from a physiotherapist or pilates instructor or accompanied by a caregiver.

Programmes can be developed for anybody ranging from having a severe disability through to being fully independent.

What do we mean by neurological conditions?

According to Wikipedia,
“Neurology (from Greek νε?ρον, neuron, "nerve"; and -λογ?α, -logia) is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Specifically, it deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.“

Some conditions occur suddenly:

Stroke (CVA)
Brain aneurysm
Spinal cord injury (SCI)
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Complications from brain surgery
Transverse Myelitis (TM)

Others can be progressive and pass through different phases and speeds of change:

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Motor Neuron Disease (MND)
Muscular Dystrophy
Brain tumour
Parkinson’s Disease
Cerebellar disease

Who can we help?

Adults and children with any of the above conditions.
Older adults who are experiencing difficulties with balance, negotiating steps, stairs and slopes, walking in dim and dark places.

Every person with a neurological condition presents with a unique combination of abilities and limitations. We have a specialized physiotherapist, Bronagh Quinn who manages our Neurological rehabilitation service. She has 20 years of experience in this area and is currently completing a Masters Degree in stroke rehabilitation.
