Introduction to Guillian-Barré Syndrome

Introduction to Guillian-Barré Syndrome

Guillian-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a disease in which the peripheral nerves (those outside the brain and spinal cord) become inflamed and stop working. This causes weakness of the muscles in the arms, legs, face and those responsible for breathing.

Manchester Neuro Physio provide rehabilitation for patients with Guillian-Barré syndrome following their discharge from hospital. We aim to maximise your potential to make a full recovery. Recovery times are variable ranging from two weeks to two years. Some individuals may never return to their full previous level of function.

Our neurological physiotherapists realise that Guillian-Barré syndrome affects everyone differently and every patient has different rehabilitation goals. Our physiotherapists can provide home based exercise programmes, specialist gym based rehabilitation programmes and hydrotherapy treatments to achieve your goals.
