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.
