Advice and education

Living with a long-term neurological condition can be incredibly difficult – the ways in which neurological disorders present can be complex and challenging.  

At Bristol neurophysio we have many years of experience in addressing these issues and have excellent contacts with other specialists, health professionals and services.

We can also work closely with your carers and relatives to advise and educate them on specific issues, such as positioning, stretches and assisting you with physiotherapy techniques and exercise programmes.

We can work with you to help find solutions and strategies for dealing with some of these issues by way of providing you with information and advice as well as “hands on” therapy.  

If you are unsure how we may be able to help then please feel free to contact us.  We are happy to discuss your individual needs with you and direct you towards appropriate services free of charge.

In addition to the above we are also able to offer more formal training, where indicated. Please see our ‘Training’ section for further information.

Some kind words

Our daughter’s renal failure means that she is delayed with standing and walking at 2 and half years of age. We first started seeing Jules a few months back for an intense block of physiotherapy to build the strength and skills needed for her to eventually stand and walk.  It was really important that the physiotherapist specialised in paediatrics and could work alongside the NHS physiotherapists we also see. Jules immediately put us at ease with her friendly and professional approach and has built a good, trusting relationship with our daughter.  She uses play as a way to get our daughter to engage with the therapy.  Our daughter has really enjoyed all her physio sessions to date and we have seen a notable improvement in her movement.  She has begun to pull herself up and can climb up small steps as well as shuffle down stairs in a controlled manner!
