Welcome to CNS Neuro Rehabilitation & Elderly Care
Our team of specialist Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists provide assessment and rehabilitation for adults with neurological conditions and older adults who are experiencing difficulty with their mobility or independence.
We provide bespoke services from the comfort of your own home. Our aim is to ensure that we support each individual to fulfil their potential whilst achieving their goals.
As neurological physiotherapists we specialise in assessing and treating individuals with neurological impairments.
We facilitate brain pathway connections through repetitive movement patterns and task practice. The physiotherapists at CNS will do everything they can to help clients move better and ensure that issues are addressed proactively to prevent long-term problems from developing.
Our unique rehabilitation programs are individual and personalised. They focus on improving movement and posture, reducing muscle tightness, enhancing upper limb function, improving balance and mobility, reducing the risk of falls and increasing independence at home and in the community.
Physiotherapists play a vital role in the care of the elderly, offering specialised services to enhance their overall health and well-being. With a focus on mobility, strength, and balance, our experienced physiotherapists create personalised exercise programmes to improve independence, prevent falls, and manage chronic conditions. Their expertise contributes to promoting active living and improving the quality of life for older adults.
CNS occupational therapists are experts in assessing the physical and cognitive impact of neurological injuries. They recommend techniques, strategies, adaptations to your home or equipment to help you regain independence or reduce the amount of assistance you need from a carer.
Our occupational therapists will provide practical solutions that maximise independence and reduce your dependence on others – from equipment that enables someone to prepare meals and drinks independently to installing rails for safe access or replacing a bath with a walk-in shower.
For many people with neurological injury or illness, cognitive problems may be the greatest barrier to independent living. Occupational therapy provides advice and support on how to improve cognitive function, and on learning strategies to help compensate for specific areas of difficulty.
We have a wealth of experience in treating all types of neurological disorders from Epilepsy to Multiple Sclerosis to Brain Tumours. We help clients to set meaningful goals and focus their rehabilitation on the areas that are important to them and will enhance quality of life.
Neurological rehabilitation plays a key role for people with Parkinson’s Disease. Exercise is shown to help slow the progression of symptoms. Our physiotherapists have completed PD Warrior training, which is a series of Parkinson’s–specific exercises designed for maximum effect to challenge the body and mind.
The therapists at CNS have experience in this specialist area of neurology. We understand that increased activity can make the symptoms feel worse but it does not cause further damage. A graded exercise programme can reduce symptoms and help clients achieve their goals. We can also advise employers with a phased return to work.
Our physiotherapists and occupational therapists have extensive experience in the assessment of age related changes that can occur. Following a thorough assessment we offer a bespoke treatment plan to maximise independence and ensure you have the functional ability to enjoy life.
Our physiotherapists are well practised in hydrotherapy and enjoy seeing the benefits of water based sessions. Following hydrotherapy our clients often have a huge sense of achievement. The water can promote relaxation, increase independence and provide a sense of well-being.
Clients with an acquired brain injury often experience a range of symptoms and need a broad range of support. Our occupational and physiotherapists work together, and alongside other health professionals, to create a bespoke treatment plan that focuses on maximising the client’s potential and achieving an agreed level of independence.
Our stroke rehabilitation service is a very specialist type of treatment where our goal is to maximise the recovery of function. At CNS we use a multi-disciplinary approach that can help to relearn the skills that may have been lost when the stroke-affected part of the brain. We can help to regain independence and improve quality of life.
Following a thorough assessment a report is written which identifies the needs, goals and expected outcomes of an individual following an injury. A bespoke programme is then created to coordinate outcome-focused rehabilitation, and to ensure that the client receives appropriate treatment at the earliest opportunity.
Our therapists complete a detailed assessment to ensure an accurate understanding of our clients clinical presentation is obtained. This allows an appropriate and specific treatment plan to be formulated that will be reassessed continually to ensure that specific needs are met and goals are achieved.
We are very accomplished and skilled at completing ergonomic / workplace assessments and are able to work in a variety of different settings. Following a customised onsite assessment recommendations and a tailored programme is put in place to optimise safety, health, and comfort to ensure that our clients conditions are managed effectively in the workplace.
