Conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord and nerves affect the ability to sit up, stand, walk, and do many daily activities. Although the severity of the limitations differs from patient to patient, neurological physical therapists use a wide variety of techniques and methods to reeducate and retrain function that has been lost.
- Spinal cord injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Motor Neuron Disease
- muscular dystrophies
- nerve injuries
- Deficits seen post-surgery for brain or spinal cord tumors or injuries.
- Geriatric Conditions:
Above the age of 60, many individuals begin complaining of pain and difficulty doing activities they could do easily before. The normal aging process results in weaker muscles, slower reflexes, more brittle bones and stiffer joints.
Physiotherapy can help with maintaining these properties, as well as provide relief from arthritis, spondylitis and other common complaints of old age.
Healyos also focuses on preventive care, ensuring that fractures are stopped before they happen. We use our Senior Care Assessment to identify and correct issues with balance and walking to prevent falls and the complications that they bring.

- Cerebral palsy
- Nerve injuries
- Muscular dystrophies

- Sports Injuries: We offer the latest in conservative management as well as post-operative rehabilitation for ligament injuries, strains, muscle tears and more. Each patient is given a customised treatment plan to make sure they return to their highly demanding training schedule and sport as soon as possible.

- Pain Management: Physiotherapists use a wide range of modalities, treatment techniques and methods to provide relief from chronic pain resulting from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, cancer, surgery, nerve injuries, fractures, etc.
Your physiotherapist will always remain within your tolerance while treating you. Some cases, such as post-surgery patients, will experience a little pain as they begin movement again, but this will subside as you progress. Some may experience soreness after the treatment session, but your therapist will teach you how to deal with this.
The treatments will never be unbearably painful or worsen your condition.
Each case and each patient is unique. The physiotherapist will be able to tell you your requirement after thoroughly examining you. Patients with neurological conditions (stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury) may require years of treatment; orthopedic injuries or post-operative patients may need only a few weeks/months of time.
This is to make you as independent as possible, and to speed up your progress. Exercising once a day with the physiotherapist may not be enough, and most physiotherapists assign a set of easy tasks and exercises you can safely do without supervision at home. To make your recovery as complete and long-lasting as possible, follow the routine given by your physiotherapist.
