Postural management

Individuals with neurological conditions often have problems with posture due to issues with muscle weakness, spasticity, muscle shortening and altered sensation.

The aim of postural management is to maximise an individual’s function whilst minimising secondary problems e.g. contractures, pain, tissue damage, chest infections.

The therapists at Bristol neurophysio can work with you to carry out detailed assessments of your postural needs and help you to make necessary changes in order for you to achieve your potential and reduce the risk of secondary complications.

As part of this we will liaise with other services as appropriate e.g. Wheelchair Services.

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.
