Neuromuscular and neurological conditions arise from diseases and/or injuries that affect the central and peripheral nervous system, i.e. the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves and autonomic nervous system and their connections to the muscular structures.
The effects of these conditions can have a profound impact on the body’s ability to move and function optimally which in turn can affect the client’s level of independence and quality of life.
Therapeutic techniques involved in facilitating neuroplasticity where the brain is challenged to change itself and to regain function are used in conjunction with 24-hour postural management strategies.
