Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a genetic disease caused by a change or mutation in 1 of the genes located on the chromosomes (DNA) in human cells. Muscular dystrophy causes muscle weakness and a decrease in muscle mass over time.
Muscular dystrophies include several genetic disorders that result in muscle weakness and a loss of muscle mass, often termed muscle "wasting." The muscles that control the arms and legs (the voluntary muscles) are often the most involved, but different groups of muscles can be affected. Each form of muscular dystrophy (MD) progresses at a different rate, but muscles will weaken and degenerate over time, and many people lose functional skills, such as the ability to walk. Some children who have severe forms of MD may never be able to walk. Muscular dystrophy is not contagious and is not caused by an injury or activity. The major form of MD in children is Duchenne MD. Other forms of MD in children include Becker, congenital, Emery-Dreifuss, and myotonic. Other forms of dystrophies may develop in the late teen years and in adulthood.
The therapy team at the Physiotheraphy & Rehabilitation Consultancy Center has specialized training in and extensive knowledge of the treatment of peripheral joint injuries.
Peripheral joint injuries cover a wide array of conditions from traumatic injuries such as acute strains (damage to a tendon/muscle) or sprains (damage to a ligament), to fractures, and dislocations/subluxations. They also include chronic injury from overuse such as tendonitis. The Physiotheraphy & Rehabilitation Consultancy Center specializes in all these areas including post-surgical rehabilitation.
The evaluation for the peripheral joint injury will include not only an extensive evaluation of the joint directly involved with the injury, but also the other joints in the same limb and spine that may be contributing to your pain. Treatments will include an individualized exercise program to help you regain mobility, strength and stability in the joints affected and may include: Modalities for pain and swelling relief such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or iontophoresis, manual therapy to restore joint and soft tissue mobility taping and bracing to assist the healing and protection of an acute sprain in the initial stages, or aide in support and retraining of correct neuromuscular movement of joint evaluation and training of your body mechanics to allow you a return to pain free activities if the injury is job related or from lifting, you will be instructed in correct techniques to avoid re injury.
Spinal pain is one of the most common problems seen by physiotherapists. In most cases, physiotherapy can help, but as in all problems, early assessment and treatment is vital.
Physiotherapy management in most cases seems to be beneficial in helping overcome spinal pain. Using a biomechanical model, modalities such as joint mobilisation/ manipulation, exercises, soft tissue therapy, traction and patient education can lead to a good outcome. Self treatment strategies are very important.
In about 80% of spinal pain the exact diagnosis is not apparent. This means that no-one can tell exactly what structure is injured. Physiotherapists usually use a biomechanical diagnosis. This identifies areas of the spine and surrounding structures, that have dysfunctional movement. Treatment is aimed at restoring pain free movement and function in the spine. This helps in the majority of patients.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation helps athletes effectively treat pain and return to normal function. We emphasize the importance of early injury recognition and treatment.
In conjunction with receiving a course of treatment, specific strengthening and flexibility exercises will be implemented. Progressive exercises are included in rehabilitation programmes to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state.
Our therapists provide care that is unsurpassed and unique to each individual patient. Our team approach includes close communication with all involved parties (referring physician, etc.) on the progress of each individual.
Adult neurological physiotherapy refers to the rehabilitation of people aged over 18 with neurological conditions. At Manchester Neuro Physio we have experienced adult neurological physiotherapists who offer specialised physiotherapy treatments for people with many different neurological conditions.
Physiotherapy regularly utilises hands-on treatment combined with exercise to aid improvement. Manchester Neuro Physio uses a mixture of various neurological physiotherapy principles, including the Carr and Shepherd Concept (motor relearning), Brunstrom Approach (synergistic movement), the Bobath Concept (normal movement), Conductive Education and functional rehabilitation. Your treatment approach will be determined by your individual requirements to ensure the best possible treatment is offered.
For adults with physical neurological problems physiotherapy should begin almost immediately. At Manchester Neuro Physio there are no waiting lists and we are therefore able to offer early intervention. Our physiotherapists also work directly with occupational therapists who can offer further equipment and treatment should it be required.
We are highly specialised children's neurophysiotherapists and we provide "More than just therapy." We will help your baby or child to achieve their maximum physical potential as they become older, grow and develop.
Children with neurological conditions can suffer from a range of problems, which may include poor balance and a lack of coordination.
These difficulties can, in turn, cause problems with sitting, standing, walking and running. Delayed development means that children reach milestones later than others, with negative consequences when it comes to speaking and understanding, writing and reading. What are known as gross motor skills (movements that involve the body’s larger muscles) can be affected, as can fine motor skills. The latter are responsible for delicate manoeuvres involving smaller muscles, such as those found in the fingers.
Neurological physiotherapy can lead to improvements in any of these areas, helping children develop to the best of their potential.
This term relates to the assessment and treatment of people with disorders of the respiratory system. This includes conditions affecting the lungs, such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis. It also includes a wide range of conditions that impact the respiratory system, such as general surgery and severe illness requiring intensive care. Most approaches involve the application of various chest clearance techniques, also exercise and learning pacing and resting positions to enable maximum functional ability.
