As well as physical injury and rehabilitation, there are a numerous neurological disorders and injuries that require the support of a Physio Comes To You neurological therapist.
Neurological physiotherapy can be a complex and challenging process that includes many areas of a patient’s life, which will include multiple neurological therapy services. Often occupational therapy and speech and language therapy in addition to physiotherapy are also needed and in some cases psychological support.
Initial focus will be on a neurological exam to assess the level of treatment required before a programme of treatment can be designed around your needs. The neurological services required by a patient could be as a result of a head injury, nerve injury, a developmental concern or as a consequence of age. By addressing the issues with comprehensive neurological services it is possible to aid recovery, improve development or slow degenerative conditions
The role of neurological physiotherapy (neurological physical therapy)
After conducting the initial physiotherapy neurological assessment, the role of the therapist is to ascertain the patient’s specific needs and design a neurological rehabilitation programme around these requirements.
This may involve liaising with and utilising a number of other services, including care homes, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.
The therapist will often devise an extensive neurological physiotherapy exercises programme for the patient to perform on a regular basis. This aims to train the neurological system to function in a more effective way, improving quality of life for the patient. It can be a challenging process but real progress can be made.

Really excellent service. Gemma, who arranged the appointment was great, and Jacob the physiotherapist excellent. I called and within almost 12 hours I was seen and made better!
Veni was great with my Father. Both of them got on well & my Father feel very comfortable with her. Looking forward to Veni providing further Physio for him!

I'm really happy with the service received from them. I used them twice and both times the therapists were great, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Plus the convenience of being seen at my own home.

Great service and so much easier them coming to your home. Had physio for my 2yr old after his leg was taken out of plaster and Maria was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly with him.

Jacob was very good and gave lots of helpful exercises and advice. my feet and ankles have definitely improved since his visit so would definitely recomment.
Florence was just fantastic! She helped renew my confidence and was very detailed
I thought your whole service was excellent from booking to receiving treatment. Unfortunately my mother (patient) did not want to continue with treatment at this stage. I thought Abideen was superb and kept me informed in detail of how the treatment went. I have no doubt that if my mother would have given herself a chance with Abideen then she would have been on the road to recovery by now, but I couldn’t force Her. I would definitely recommend your services to a friend.
Excellent service and prompt with materials in hand.

This was the first time I've use Physiocomestoyou services, and so far I am very happy. Customer services is excellent, and Lauren is very nice and professional. I can't wait for my daughter next appointment.

I had an incredible experience with physio. James Bradley - I had nerve damage and though I'm a professional fitness instructor, I could not move past it- within an hour and a half he had me up and moving- really the BEST experience I could have had and so grateful he showed up on time to my home. What a gift.
- Lyndsey Seale
James was thorough, clear in his explanations and about what I should expect from the treatment. He was also able to put me at ease during the session. Overall this has been a very good experience and I would be happy to recommend the service to a friend.
- Helen Welch
I called around to many clinics but they either don't do home visits or were not taking new patients. I was able to find one through PhysioComesToYou and the service was amazing. A high professional organisation.
We were assigned James Bradley (who is a fantastic physiotherapist) to help my father recover his mobility following a stroke. I cannot speak highly enough of his bedside manner and professionalism. I would recommend both PyhsioComesToYou and James

Lockdown had the merit of flushing out those dark alcoves where excuses live to put off exercise but more time at home can leave you prone to over doing it. That was my story with what started as a niggle in my heal developing into a massive inflammation of my achilles and forced hanging up of my running shoes. That's when Physio Comes to you comes in. The lay up was inevitable but what was concerning was the prospect of finding a high quality physio to aid my return to tempo and long runs in the midst of tier 4 lockdown. It was great to hear the reassurance that a quality physio was on hand and the home visit that was promtpty arranged put me well on the road to recovery. It may be a while yet before clocking those sub 7 minute miles but with these guys with me every step of the way I know that when the running shoes are back on I will be in best shape.
Angela was brilliant, very considerate and professional. Most impressed
