Neurological Conditions

Is a neurological condition interfering with your independence?

Vancouver & Burnaby, BC physiotherapy can help you reclaim your life!

Neurological conditions are disorders that affect the brain and/or spinal cord. Injuries and diseases that affect the brain and spinal cord have an impact on the nerves found throughout the human body.

Neurological conditions can significantly impact a person’s life. These conditions can impair your ability to process information, causing changes in your daily functioning. When a neurological condition impairs your ability to move, your quality of life may suffer.

Physiotherapists and chiropractors, however, understand how to identify the underlying cause(s) of your neurological condition and provide you with the most effective treatment strategies for maximizing your function while minimizing any losses. Whenever appropriate, you will be referred to your doctor for further assessment.

Our Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver and Burnaby Metrotown clinics will strive to provide high-quality care. Physiotherapists at MSK Health and Performance are highly skilled professionals who specialize in treating mobility issues caused by nervous system injuries or illnesses.

Call us today to find out how our physiotherapy services can help you manage your neurological condition.

Typical neurological conditions

Physiotherapists are frequently associated with orthopedic conditions such as back or knee pain; however, one of the most important areas of physiotherapy is the treatment of neurological disorders.

Our therapists have extensive training in identifying various neurological conditions and frequently collaborate with other specialists to develop treatment plans that maximize function.

Physiotherapists commonly treat the following neurological conditions:

Stroke

A stroke is a serious medical condition with symptoms ranging from mild to life-threatening. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a portion of the brain is interrupted. Strokes are considered a medical emergency and must be treated as soon as possible by medical specialists. In fact, the sooner a person receives treatment, the less likely serious harm will occur.

When your brain’s blood supply is cut off, there is a lack of oxygen and nutrients in the brain tissue, which may result in the death of brain cells, resulting in the impairments commonly associated with a stroke. The physical effects of a stroke are determined by the location of the stroke.

Physiotherapy can help with stroke recovery. Treatment plans for physiotherapy typically begin with basic functioning and progress to include re-education of balance, gait, and more advanced functional activities.

Our physiotherapists in Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver or Burnaby Metrotown will assist you in regaining functional skills so that you can resume your normal life as soon as possible.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder that affects nerve cells in the brain, resulting in unintentional or uncontrollable movements such as shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Weakness in the face, difficulty swallowing and speaking, poor posture and constipationare also common symptoms.

Symptoms usually appear gradually and progress over time. People may have difficulty walking and talking as the disease progresses. Physiotherapy has been shown to help people manage their symptoms and live an active, productive life by slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, resulting in various symptoms, such as numbness and tingling, problems with vision, arm or leg movement,, or balance and fatigue. MS is a chronic condition that can range in severity from mild to severe disability, and symptoms can be treated in many cases. If this disorder worsens, it can potentially shorten people’s lives.

Physiotherapists will assist you to move as freely as possible while also alleviating your symptoms and teaching you how to manage this condition.

Alzheimer’s and dementia

Although physiotherapy does not address the specific changes in the brain associated with memory, physiotherapists frequently work with individuals suffering from dementia-related disorders to improve their balance and gait in order to reduce their risk of falling.

Exercise, according to research, can help to slow the decline and maintain brain function. If you or a loved one is suffering from dementia, seeking help as soon as possible can make a significant difference in the disease’s progression.
