Neuro Physiotherapy Service to Teenagers and Young Adults

Transitional Support

With the growing success of our paediatric practice and the need for transitional support to young adults, we have extended our practice by offering high standard evidence-based, adult neurological physiotherapy treatments. Our neuro physiotherapists believe that ongoing rehabilitation is essential through the transitional phase as a child grows into an adult. Our evidence-based, hands-on neuro physiotherapy treatment and management plan for individuals with special needs are designed to offer continuity, promote progress and help young adults to be as independent and successful as they aspire to be within the confines of their disability.

Besides treatment, we offer tailored training and support to care staff, advise to college and educational staff on manual handling, positioning, usage of equipment, bespoke training to the staff for use of equipment, manual handling and home-based programme, advice on care plans. We will assess and devise a treatment for hydrotherapy or rebound therapy as appropriate. Our holistic approach is aimed at helping our clients achieve realistic goals irrespective of age or injury. All our services are carried out in the safety and comfort of our physiotherapy clinic in Leeds and are designed to help treat a variety of neurological conditions in young adults.
