Disorders of Movement and Balance

Disorders of Movement and Balance                                  Balance disorder

 

Movement disorders encompass a wide group of neurological conditions that affect an individual’s ability to conduct fluent, organized movement. Depending on the severity and location of the damage in the brain, people with movement disorders experience abnormal voluntary or involuntary muscle movement. This can involve muscle weakness, muscle paralysis, irregular patterns of reflexes and/or a loss of coordination.

Examples of movement disorders include: Ataxia, Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Spasticity.

Our therapists have attended many courses and workshops in order to be able to offer you the latest evidence based treatment programs. Treatment always begins with an initial assessment so that your physiotherapist can understand where you may be needing help and so that an individualized treatment program can be designed for you. During this assessment, you will be able to share your concerns with your therapist. We offer group and individual treatment sessions to address your concerns regarding movement and balance.
