Neurological Conditions - M.A.P. Physiotherapy - Ottawa

We have extensive training in treating people with neurological conditions such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis. We take a full body approach to balance and functional movement.

Lifelong Recovery

Often people with neurological issues are told there is a finite timeline on their recovery after a stroke or an injury. This simply is not true. The brain is plastic, meaning it can change and adapt, our whole lives. So long as that’s the case, functional improvement is always possible. Whether you have had something happen to you six months ago or twenty years ago, we can help you work towards achieving your goals.

Pain

Often people with neurological issues think they have to live with pain as a part of their condition. Significant pain should not be something you have to put up with. This can almost always be improved or alleviated with treatment.

Degenerative Conditions

In the case of degenerative neurological conditions, physiotherapy treatment can help maintain functional mobility as long as possible, as well as avoid pain. We can help you make the best use of the muscle power you have.

Most people last less than a year before bailing on their fitness plan, but she had stuck with it for 20 years.

The reason she came for help was that she had begun to experience pain. It had gotten so bad that not only was she no longer able to go to the gym, she was having trouble with everyday activities like going up and down stairs. She saw her family doctor who essentially told her that her pain was age related and part of the natural progression post-stroke. Fortunately a friend convinced her otherwise and told her she should come and see me.

“Hey, that hurt,” he said. “I beg your pardon?” I replied. We stared at each other astounded. Given that I had pretty much just raked a forearm up the side of his thigh, one would not think this sort of statement would be surprising. But it was absolutely astonishing...
