Sensory Rehabilitation

NeuroPhysio can help them to understand the impact this has on their function and plan an evidence based rehabilitation programme to improve their sensation and movement.

Sensory Rehabilitation

The ability to touch and feel is essential to help us to understand the world and move purposefully and accurately.

When a client has suffered a neurological injury or disorder that has resulted in changes to their sensation, NeuroPhysio can help them to understand the impact this has on their function and plan an evidence based rehabilitation programme to improve their sensation and movement.

What is Sensation?

Sensation is fundamental to enable us to move and interact with other people and the environment.

People most often think of sensation as their ability to feel an object, but there are in fact many different aspects and ways in which it can be affected.

NeuroPhysio frequently help people with sensory issues caused by damage to the nervous system resulting in:




Pins & Needles




Lack of joint positional awareness


Difficulty feeling of shapes and texture


Changes in temperature recognition

These symptoms go beyond what a person ‘feels’ and can affect how they move including reducing co-ordination or accuracy and resulting in clumsy movements and a loss of dexterity.

Rehabilitating Sensation

Sensory re-education programmes help people with neurological injuries retrain their brain to process sensory information or to adopt new techniques to compensate for their loss.

NeuroPhysio provides a comprehensive assessment of a person’s sensory problems and design effective training programmes to stimulate the brain to rewire.

Whilst NeuroPhysio will generally include sensory retraining as part of any rehabilitation programme, if sensory deficits are having a more profound impact on movement we may recommend an intensive training programme such as SENSe Sensory Rehabilitation.

Helen worked with my 88 year old Mum following her knee replacement. I was very very impressed. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive, she got my Mum full mobilised and back playing bowls. She had her operation in November 2018 and was she was back playing bowls in January 2019. My Mum has now had a refurbishment of her replacement hip and I have no hesitation in going back to her and recommending her to others.

An inner ear problem last July that developed into vestibular neuritis led to problems with the muscles, nerves and joints in my neck which caused nausea, dizziness, vision problems as well as the usual aches and pain. In February I came to the Physio4 You team in despair. Rachel did a thorough vestibular assessment and was able to reassure me that the vestibular problem was resolved. I was then given Helen’s details for the neck issues. She has been a real Godsend. She is calm, friendly, reassuring and professional. After a thorough exam in which she listened carefully to my history of symptoms, she took time to explain what the problem was and a plan for treatment going forward. This problem has caused me real anxiety at times. She set my mind at rest that I will get better. I am still undergoing treatment but there has been a vast improvement. She takes time to answer all my questions and I always leave feeling so positive. I would thoroughly recommend their services
