Physiotherapy treatment for MS is mostly exercise based combined with ‘hands on’ physiotherapy. Our experienced physiotherapists understand that MS affects everyone differently and your goals will be unique to you.
Physiotherapy should commence as soon as possible following an initial attack to allow you to reach your full potential and limit the progression of your symptoms. The NHS physiotherapy services for MS often have a long waiting list and treatment is restricted to a few sessions. Manchester Neuro Physio are able to provide physiotherapy assessment and treatment as soon and as often as is required.
During your initial assessment you and your physiotherapist will discuss realistic long and short term goals. These goals will be at the centre of your rehabilitation.
The physiotherapists at Manchester Neuro Physio will usually teach you (and your family members / carers if appropriate) exercises to be continued between appointments.
As well as improving your general health, physiotherapy can help:
- improve balance and walking difficulties
- reduce muscle spasms and stiffness
- increase strength
- retrain normal patterns of movement
- increase energy levels
- reduced bladder or bowel problems
- increase mood
- educate about MS and your symptoms
- reduce risk of falls
Manchester Neuro Physio can also give advice regarding walking aids and equipment to make your home or working life easier.
Our specialist neurological physiotherapists can maximise your recovery and help you achieve your goals.
