Head Injury

Head injuries can have a significant and varied affect on an individual. Often there can be problems with arm or leg weakness, stiffness and balance. Treatment often includes stretching and strengthening exercises. Improvements in these areas can then be translated into functional benefits like improved walking or the better use of a hand for eating, dressing or driving the car. Treatment should start as soon as possible and continue until your maximum potential has been reached. A specialist physiotherapist can help you work towards the goals that matter most to you. Saebo orthotics may help the return of hand function. Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) may help to reduce shoulder pain and subluxation or correct foot drop to promote more efficient and safe walking.
