A person following a stroke will benefit from physiotherapy treatment. Manchester Physio have experienced neurological physiotherapists, that provide specialist assessment and treatment for people following a stroke, to enable them to perform everyday tasks more independently and help them to make significant long term improvements.

Benefits of physiotherapy at Manchester Physio following a stroke include:
  • Facilitating normal movement patterns
  • Improving activity of the affected side
  • Improving function such as rolling, sitting balance, standing and walking
  • Normalising muscle tone
  • Improving sensation
  • Enhancing muscle strength
  • Improving postural stability
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Reducing pain and stiffness
  • Facilitating independence
  • Improving quality of life
Our physiotherapists treat many people following a stroke and are experienced at providing individualised rehabilitation for all our patients to ensure that they make the best possible recovery. Every person with a stroke is different. Treatment will therefore be tailored to your current symptoms and physical function and may include:
  • Practicing functional activities to improve activity of the weaker side and promoting independence
  • Teaching transfers (getting in and out of wheelchair, bed, car, shower/bath, on and off toilet)
  • Muscle stretching to reduce high tone and prevent soft tissue contractures
  • Exercises to build muscle strength and stamina and reduce fatigue
  • Constraint induced movement therapy (CIMT) to improve upper limb function
  • Advice on walking aids, supports, splints and orthotics
  • Hydrotherapy treatment to maximise strength and flexibility
  • Functional electrical stimulation
Physiotherapy treatment at Manchester Physio will make everyday tasks easier to achieve by working closely with you, your partner, family or carer. Your physiotherapist will guide and support you throughout your rehabilitation to ensure you make the best possible recovery.
