The RHN has a team of physiotherapists supporting patients.
Physiotherapy in the Brain Injury Service helps people with a brain injury maximise their abilities and supports them and their families as they plan for the future.
Physiotherapists assess the components of movement (muscle strength, joint range, sensation, coordination and balance) and determine how these affect an individuals’ ability to live and be independent within their own environment.
The physiotherapist works within a team of skilled clinicians (the multidisciplinary team) to help the patient set goals relating to their current and predicted abilities and form a plan of treatment. Physiotherapists use a broad range of skills and knowledge to create an individualised plan of treatment, specific to the patient and based on current evidence based practice.
Physiotherapy treatment programmes are provided by registered physiotherapists and physiotherapy support staff.
Our team of physiotherapists are registered members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and the Health and Care Professions Council.
