Damage to your central nervous system, including your brain and your spinal cord, means that the messages from your brain are not reaching the affected parts of your body. This can result in loss of movement and sensation, uncoordinated movement, weak and floppy muscles, spasm and tremor.

When the nervous system is damaged, everyday activities can become difficult as a result of:

  • Weakness or paralysis
  • Balance and coordination problems
  • Catching your toes when you walk, known as Dropped Foot or Foot Drop
  • Changes in your respiratory function
  • Problems with speech and swallowing
  • Issues with continence

Physical therapy for neurological disorders will be tailored to the particular needs of the patient and the specific condition to build strength and for continued use of muscles to avoid tissue atrophy.
