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

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!
