Gait analysis and re-education

Many neurological conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and brain injury can lead to problems with walking. This can be due to a number of issues, including weakness, tightness of the muscles in the legs, poor balance or problems with sensation.

At Bristol Neurophysio we have extensive experience of gait analysis and re-education; we can evaluate your walking, discuss the issues you're facing and implement a treatment programme to help improve things.

If items of equipment such as walking sticks or frames are indicated, we will be able to offer advice on the most suitable ones for you.

Some kind words

I had a Stroke 18 months ago and only contacted Bristol Neurophysio six weeks ago. I had a prompt response and appointment made for the following week, unfortunately I had to cancel this due to illness. Kirsty was extremely understanding and rescheduled immediately. I have had three sessions since and am extremely pleased with my progress towards my wish to walk, for the first time I feel this will happen. It is hard work and tiring but Kirsty is always cheerful and encouraging and each time makes the tasks achievable. At last someone understands what it's like for me and takes time to explain how my Stroke has affected me. Watch this space as I'm sure I will be posting a new testimonial when I am walking again.
