At Physio.co.uk, our specialised physiotherapists commonly treat people with muscle weakness caused by damage to the brain or spinal cord. An initial consultation with one of our physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk will assess what muscles are weak and how this is interfering with your daily routine. Physiotherapy will help you gradually strengthen your muscles in a safe way so that you can roll in bed, stand and walk better. Physiotherapy will depend on our current symptoms but may include:
  • Progressive exercise program to improve muscle strength and well as cardiovascular fitness.
  • Balance training
  • Core stability exercises
  • Gait training with or without the use of aids
  • Muscle stretching and joint mobilisation to relieve pain and maintain range of movement. Pain can also inhibit muscle function, adding to weakness.
  • Electrical stimulation to enhance voluntary muscle contraction which involves applying pads to the surface of the limb (thigh, for example) to deliver a low level electrical signal.
  • Hydrotherapy to promote active range of motion. The natural buoyancy allows simulated weight bearing and increase muscle strength.
