Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy

At Foundations Physio we work with adults who live with Cerebral Palsy (CP), a condition present from birth often due to medical complications. In your early years you will no doubt get very familiar with physiotherapy, and often the first thing we hear when we meet someone with CP is “oh I didn’t really like physiotherapy”.

At Foundations Physio we want to change that, we aim to make physiotherapy fun, interesting and targeted to your daily life. We know that people with CP often have spasms, pain, weakness and changes in their posture as well as associated medical conditions to consider, all of which are totally different from person to person.

After completing a comprehensive assessment we will build exercises like stretches and strengthening into your daily routine, considering your posture and opportunities to move over 24 hours. Our intervention may involve recommendations on specialist equipment, technology or seating in order for you to be supported, comfortable and able to pursue your interests.
At Foundations Physio we mainly work with adults and one area we often get involved with is the transition from children’s to adult services and the changes in healthcare, funding and living environment. We understand it can be a difficult time for everyone involved and try to help you navigate this transition as smoothly as possible whilst supporting you to get the help you need moving forwards.

Without exception the team’s kind and professional manner has enabled our residents to regain confidence and self-belief which has led to them reaching their optimum potential along their individual and often complex journeys. Thank you, it is an absolute pleasure to work with you all.

The team have an excellent collaborative demeanour, bringing their encouragement, experience and analysis to bear on every aspect of my rehabilitation process. I wasn’t sure at the beginning what Foundations Physio would bring beyond what my NHS physio was providing, but I’m now convinced my progress has been much quicker thanks to their input.


Foundations Physio give people their independence and confidence back. As a carer I see the impact the physio sessions have on the residents. It motivates people to keep moving forward, gives them hope and encourages them to think positively.

I cannot recommend Foundations Physio highly enough! The team have been visiting residents in our home since June 2014 when we first opened our doors. The difference that they have made, not only to the physical well being but also to the psychological and emotional well being of the residents here is truly outstanding.

Sharon Parkin - Care Home Manager

Adam was my Physio whilst I was in a rehabilitation unit and then subsequently when I was at first at home. I could not stand up, let alone walk when he first started helping me. He was very caring, supportive, encouraging and pushed me to do things that I did not really believe that I could do. So now after a further 9 months, I feel that I am really leading a fairly normal life again and am not sure that would have happened without his initial support and care.


I can’t tell you how pleased I am to have met Adam. He was there for through some really rough times with helpful advice and support. My MS was really getting me down and I now have some useful aids and a new support group that Adam introduced me to. My family would also like to thank the Foundations Physio team for their encouragement and positivity.


Adam has been my father’s physio for over a year and the care and attention he has shown has been excellent. We were fortunate to meet Adam a couple of years ago through the NHS and have subsequently used Foundations Physio on a private one to one basis; the incredibly high level of care has been absolutely super.


We are a very diverse group with various disabilities, the sessions are geared to improve all of us individually. Adam leads the group with great empathy and understanding of our needs, at the same time as being quite a work out for us it is also an enjoyable experience.
