Having a brain injury may be as a result of a traumatic event such as a car accident or a cardiac arrest and often these incidents come out of the blue and can turn your life upside down. The effects of a brain injury can be wide ranging and often aren’t limited to physical difficulties. As a team we have many years experience working with Brain Injury and can work with you on all aspects of your condition, drawing on a network of other professionals to ensure you get the best advice and support.
The brain is complex and manages everything your body does, so no two people with brain injury are the same, having someone who understands how your brain works and the impact this can have is invaluable. Physiotherapy can involve exercise and the use of technology to help manage common problems such as pain, reduced movement, weakness or changes in tone, all of which may add up to a change in your functional ability. A specialist physiotherapist can help to address these and, working with Occupational Therapists, Speech therapists, Consultants and Psychologists we aim to consider the whole picture, not just the physical elements.
