Neurological Physiotherapy

Neurological Physiotherapy at Hiya Health

Neurological physiotherapy is rehabilitation for people who have suffered injury to their brain, spinal cord or other peripheral nerves.

Neurological rehabilitation aims to improve function, movement and independence for people living with injuries of their nervous and neuromuscular system.

Often, injuries to your central or peripheral nervous system can result in a wide variety of symptoms including muscle weakness, sensory changes, reduced balance and changes to gait and mobility which can create difficulty completing everyday tasks.
