Physiotherapy for dementia

Specialist neurological physiotherapy treatment at Manchester Physio will benefit a person with dementia. At Manchester Physio our motivated neurological physiotherapist understand that dementia affects everyone differently and can have a significant impact on the person affected both physically and emotionally.

Physiotherapy treatment at Manchester Physio will improve independence with everyday activities such as bed mobility, walking and climbing the stairs as well as advising and supporting family and or carers about help outside treatment sessions.
