Physiotherapy for Neuropathies




Neurological Physiotherapy will help individuals with neuropathies.

Physiotherapy treatment will control your symptoms improving your quality of life.

Physiotherapy treatment may involve:
  • A structured exercise program suited to you that will increase muscle strength and endurance
  • Advice on hand and foot orthotics to help with muscle weakness and pain. Foot braces help with foot drop and orthopaedic shoes can improve gait disturbances and help prevent foot injuries in people with a loss of pain sensation.
  • Active and passive movement to reduce muscle cramps, improve muscle and prevent muscle wasting
  • Advice and support on self care skills such as wound care and foot treatment
Your physiotherapist will see how neuropathy affects you and treatment goals with be developed as part of your rehabilitation programme.
