Neurological physiotherapy IS different from musculoskeletal physiotherapy!
A neuro physiotherapist is specialist in the management of complex rehabilitation needs, applying a holistic approach to consider all the problems that a neurological condition can cause such as speech disturbances, issues with cognition and communication, bladder and bowel concerns and vestibular dysfunction all of which can impact on an individuals potential to rehabilitate.
Neuro Physio’s are also specialist in the physical management of altered muscle tone whether that be spasticity, flaccidity, rigidity or a combination.
Sarah uses a variety of treatment approaches including hands-on therapy, exercise therapy, taping, adaptive strategies, orthotics, advice on technology and she is trained in Bobath based therapy. Sarah’s experience is deep and diverse and includes everybody from frail members of our community who have had a stroke to the serving military, including soldiers returning from the front line with Traumatic Brain Injuries.
Sarah’s special interests are functional electrical stimulation (FES), vestibular rehabilitation and aquatic therapy.
Away from work, Sarah loves the gym, hill walking, gardening and her little boy keeps her very busy!
