Bristol neurophysio works closely with both Ape Action Africa and In Defense of Animals Africa.  Kirsty Godwin-Pearson provides her specialist skills in neurophysiotherapy free of charge to help rehabilitate gorillas, chimpanzees and other primates with neurological problems.

Both charities are based in Cameroon, West Africa where gorillas and other primates are threatened by logging and the bushmeat trade. Many animals sustain neurological injuries as a direct consequence of bullet wounds and acquired meningitis.

As part of the programme, we have also provided free neurophysiotherapy to members of the local human communities.

Some kind words

I have been using Bristol neurophysio for 7 years now since suffering a spinal injury resulting in tetraplegia & spending 4 years in hospital & then a care home before I was able to return home. 
During my time back with Kirsty & her team's help I have been able to keep up a solid regime helping keep my tone down & strength up. 
With their help I’ve been able to pursue an active lifestyle.
