Brain Injuries

sunsetcoppice (1)Headway are the UK brain injury association and have extensive information and resources  for survivors, families and carers.

Recovery from Brain/Head Injuries can be rapid or extended over a long period.  Damage caused to the brain is unique to each individual and demonstrate a wide range of issues.  Recovery is most rapid in the early months, but can extend into years.

I provide a specialist physiotherapy assessment that addresses issues including:

  • Alterations in function (sitting standing walking, dressing, home life, sports, work life)
  • Weakness and / or tight (high tone) in muscles
  • Spasms that interfere with movement and function
  • Problems knowing where you are in space
  • Sensory changes
  • Dizziness on moving
  • Gross and high level balance issues
  • lack of awareness of one side of body
  • reduced balance

Please feel free to contact Pam for further information and advice.
