There are many impairments associated with neurological conditions, including, reduced mobility, poor balance, decreased muscle strength, muscle stiffness, decreased range of motion, and poor coordination. Physiotherapy can play a vital part in the assessment of these conditions, identifying impairments, and most importantly developing rehabilitation programs to address these impairments.
