Neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple sclerosis, stroke, motor neurone disease, cerebral palsy and acquired brain injuries can have a devastating and life changing effect on the lives of the sufferers and those close to them. Often those suffering from a neurological disorder may have difficulty with tasks that are generally taken for granted such as walking and getting dressed and this may be extremely distressing.
Neurological Physiotherapy is a specialist area in Physiotherapy and we are extremely fortunate at Clonmel Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic to have Caroline O Connell, a Chartered Physiotherapist who has specialised in neurology physiotherapy and rehabilitation working with us.
Her main focus is to provide interventions to assist a person suffering from a neurological disorder to maintain and regain movement, mobility and functional independence as much as possible.

- Balance re-education

Private neurological physiotherapy can be carried out simultaneously with physiotherapy received by the HSE and also continued when you have been discharged from the HSE. It is important to be assessed, treated and to participate in rehabilitation until you have reached your full functional potential.
