Neurological Physiotherapy deals with the physical rehabilitation of injuries and diseases that affect the brain and nervous system.  Our neuro-physiotherapist is extremely experienced in the rehabilitation of stroke, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's Disease and multiple sclerosis.

Programs are designed to focus on client specific goals and to provide maximum amount of independence in daily life.  Sessions are tailored to match each client’s exercise level, while engaging in fun and meaningful movement and activities.  Exercises provided will target and reinforce desired movement and postures at home.

Neurological Physiotherapy is provided at the clinic by Megan Cliff who is a Registered Physiotherapist and Bobath Trained.  Meg also previously worked with Libby Swain and Cathy Eustace at Neuro-Ability in Vancouver. Meg offers one to one treatments with a caring and personal approach and also runs our Parkinson’s Disease Exercise Classes in the Langley community.

The Bobath Concept is a hands on approach that looks at a way a person moves from their feet to head and through observation and physical assessment, an analysis is made as to how a movement pattern can be made more efficient which can reduce fatigue, pain and improve balance and precision. Often the body is so adept at compensating that it can block potential movement patterns; this can be seen in stroke patients in which the non-affected limb overcompensates for the weaker/affected side but in doing so prevents activation of muscles with potential on the affected side. 

Treatment aims to move stiff joints, strengthen and balance muscle groups through 1:1 specific handling, functional exercises and a home exercise program. Goals are created by the client with feedback from the therapist to ensure it is achievable and takes in to account all aspects of a clients life. The ultimate goal is to help the client re-integrate in to the community and participate to the fullest extent in daily life. 

Treatment is offered in the clinic space in 55 minute sessions with a 1:1 hands on approach or, home visits are available for Abbotsford, Mission, Langley, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Home visit fees depending on location, please contact us for home visit neuro fees.
