We are specialised in assessing and treating neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Parkinson disease, Transverse Myelitis, Head injury, Ataxia, Gillian barre syndrome and Vestibular problem. Our therapists have experience in working with both adult and paediatric clients.
In our assessment we look for sensation difficulties, movement difficulties, how someone co-ordinations their body to balance and how they use their eyes to directed body movements.
We have latest in movement analysis equipment to help us assess and monitor the abilities of clients such as the RS Scanner. The RS scanner enables us to measure balance and weight transfer with precision. We also use surface EMG (electromyography) which informs us of the activity within the muscle.
At Birkdale neuro rehab centre we strive to implement the very latest in neuroscience research. We often use air cushions and functional electrical stimulation combined with movement to facilitate effective learning.
Our gym is also equipped with a treadmill, cross trainer, static bike, moto-med (seated bike) and vibration plate.
