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.
