There are many different types of polyneuropathies affecting the peripheral nerves, producing a variety of sensory and motor symptoms.
When a part of the body has difficulty moving and becomes weak, typically other parts take over and do more work than they should. This leads to an imbalance, which needs to be corrected so that the weak muscles can regain their strength, in order to achieve the best possible recovery.
As with all movement and altered sensation after nerve damage, we strive to find the most appropriate treatment for you. Gentle stretching to prevent muscles shortening and becoming stiff is helpful. Guided movement from your therapist will relieve stiffness and may help with immobility-related pain. The initial assessment will enable us to create a treatment plan tailored specifically to you. Please phone us if you want to ask any questions or to discuss your individual needs, so that we can help you with your recovery.
