Physiotherapy for Apraxia

Once apraxia has been identified treatment should commence which aims to improve the person�s functional abilities where possible. Physiotherapy treatment may include:

  • Identifying the specific difficulties encountered
  • Teaching the person compensatory strategies such as verbalising the steps of the task and carrying them out at the same time or writing down the steps of the task.
  • Teaching verbal or physical cues for the person�s carer to assist in the task
  • Practising the task by breaking it down into components until the person is successful
  • Sensory stimulation
  • Gait training
  • Referral to occupational or speech therapy if necessary
  • Providing advice on appropriate equipment to increase functional independence
Physiotherapy can also help to address the physical problems that may be present alongside apraxia such as the weakness and impaired movements that may occur after a stroke. Our physiotherapists will carry out a thorough assessment of your needs to give a holistic approach to treatment. We will liaise with your relatives or carers on what they can do to help in between treatment sessions to help you achieve your goals.
