Typical Problems

Living everyday with a neurological condition can mean that routine activities become a struggle. We see that many problems arise from:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or general weakness
  • Spasticity
  • Numbness

These affect everyday activities such as:

  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Dressing
  • Feeding yourself or using a knife and fork
  • Walking around home or in the community
  • Climbing and/or descending stairs
  • Hanging out the washing
  • Housework.

It can also interfere with you being able to work, drive, participate in hobbies and sports, and go to the movies, supermarket or shopping malls.

Typical key physical problems that people want to improve include:

  • Floppy foot
  • Snapping knee
  • Limp
  • Clumsy hand/arm
