Neurological Physiotherapy

Neurological Physiotherapy in Adelaide at Pro Physio SA

Motor control and function is a result of a series of complex signals and messages being sent from the brain to various body parts. This process is complicated by the involvement of many muscles simultaneously. It is carefully mapped by the brain in a way that co-ordinates movement of the body parts. Various emotions, past experiences and repetition can all contribute significantly to how refined these motor tasks are undertaken.

There are many neural pathways that connect the brain to the various body parts. The brain can be thought of as the centralised processing area of these pathways, a bit like a central train station. The spinal cord is the main track that these pathways descend up or down. From the spinal cord, the nerves can exit via multiple channels to eventually reach the desired body part. Damage anywhere along these pathways, whether it be in the brain, the spinal cord or the peripheral nervous system (resulting in more patchy movement deficits), results in an inability to effectively move the desired body part.
